About Us

Why Choose Idler's Home?

Idler’s Home opened in San Luis Obispo, CA by Bud and Avis Idler in 1954. Bud, a WWII veteran, started with one small downtown location that sold, delivered and serviced major household appliances. It was the beginning of a true family business, with all five of Bud & Avis’s children helping daily. In the late 70s, Bud passed away and his son, Don Idler, took over the growing business. Idler’s Home has seen successful growth during over the decades and now has over 80 employees with 5 locations on the Central Coast of California.

We offer major appliances, household furniture, mattresses, hot tubs, kitchen design services and much more. We also install all appliances we sell with our trained professional installers. We service and repair appliances we sell with a small team of factory trained technicians. We also work closely with several local servicers that we trust and can get you the help you need.

We thank you, our amazing community, for the opportunity to serve you as we have been doing for almost 70 years.

Idler's Home Supports

Idler’s Home is proud of our team and the growth they have all achieved through the decades. Idler’s team and their loved ones celebrate 9 years as “Team Idler’s”, supporting the American Cancer Society and Relay for Life. Each year a group of dedicated employees, friends, and family members join together in the crusade to help fight cancer. They fundraise, organize and on the day of the Paso Robles Relay for Life they walk their hearts out. This cause is near and dear to so many of the Team Idler’s families. “Each one of us is effected in some way by this, whether we have had cancer, cared for someone with cancer or been there to support loved ones through the critical times, if we can take just a little time out of our lives to give back, then we are making a difference,” Idler says. Watch for all of Team Idler’s events and help make a difference!
