Our Story

northsound_new_logo (1).jpg

We are a commercial refrigeration service provider in the Pacific NW, founded in 2001 in Bellingham, Washington. Our owner and founder, Paul Milstead, started in the industry in 1989  by providing refrigeration service for the fast food restaurant market.  

We take pride in providing same day emergency service and making sure that when you do call, a live person will answer the phone, 24/7. In most cases you will likely be speaking directly to the technician on call or the owner himself. We currently have 18 service technicians in the field and an install crew of four to help with all aspects of the industry.

As our service business has grown our customers have requested us to expand our service offerings to further equipment needs, such as cooking equipment and HVAC systems. Our team has even expanded our range of service, with our team being available in most of Western Washington.

We pride ourselves in being a family owned business and we also treat our employees like family.


Our service area incorporates most of Northwest Washington including Whatcom, Skagit, Island, Snohomish, King, and Pierce counties.
