Annual furnace maintenance

[Review posted 2018-Dec-13] Now that the colder temperatures are here I was glad to have my Viessmann combi system working in top form. Fernando had come by on 2018-Jul-04 and did, as expected from anyone from Belyea, a great job in making sure our boiler was working as it should be not only for this heating season, but also for daily use as we use if for our on-demand hot-water. It sure is nice never to have to worry about running out of hot water for those long showers! :) Thanks to Fernando and Belyea once again for taking care of our systems and making sure we have no issues!

Robert,

Thank you for the review. We are very happy to hear about your Viessmann System. They are fantasic units! Making sure you combi system is ready for the winter months is very important. Combi units do alot of work throughout the winter and require specail treatment. Good job!

Complete Replacement of Ducts & Capping of Old Ducts

It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Dominic - from the initial phone call, through quoting process and right through to the completion of the job. He was quick to return my calls, answer any questions and gave great advice.

We were in a bit of a bind with time, but Dominic was able to make things happen for us, which we were extremely grateful for – especially knowing how busy they were at the time!

Scott did our install and was also a friendly, knowledgable, and hard-working individual. He did amazing work, and it was done extremely quick.

I highly recommend Belyea, Dominic and Scott. They know what they are doing, keep clear communication throughout the project and did spectacular work. Got us ready for spray foam in time, which made us happy campers!

Will be calling them with any future HVAC-related jobs that may arise.

Water Heater (Navien) Replacement

Can’t say enough about Matt and the whole team at Belyea. They diagnosed the problem with our Navien right away and rather than just push a replacement by another company they worked with Navien to make sure our warranty was honored. Matt and his 2 associates came within 24 hours of the problem to install the replacement. They were prompt, efficient and knowledgeable. A great service experience- which is a big deal these days in Toronto housing. Thank you!!

Gas Leak Repair

Office or technicians call ahead of time to announce their arrival. The technicians were very professional. They knew exactly how to restore gas service to all appliances. Ran a new, exterior gas line with minimal disruption. Tidied up after themselves.

Air Conditioner "Maintenance"

Purchased a ductless air conditioner 4.5 years ago, where the unit was running fine. Belyea even offered a free maintenance the first year, but never followed up with us to visit (even when we have home maintenance protection at that time, and purchased a $13,000 furnace from them 2 years later). Belyea was called to see why the A/C was not cooling, they arrived 3 days later, charging $221 as a diagnostic, then another $119 to do simple maintenance (3 minutes), claiming leaves were in the outdoor unit. There was a loose drain hose that was fixed (zip-tied) for $95 (after they installed it a few years ago!). Mysteriously the unit 3 weeks later is blowing hot air, not cooling. Belyea was called again, performed an $800 leak test, concluding a $1800 repair must be done on the unit. The technician then presented a sales pitch "it would be better to purchase a new unit". Now we are dealing with Mitsubishi directly, and will also warn neighbours and friends in North Toronto to stay away from such a company. There are many companies out there you can trust in your older homes! All of this happened during a heat wave in August/September 2018.

Company Response

We completely sympathize with Mrs. Ivanyshyn’s frustration with her ductless unit and have tried to provide the best advice based on her circumstances. We installed her boiler in September 2012 and included at no charge maintenance 18 months after the installation. We installed her Mitsubishi ductless unit on May 3, 2013 and the unit has had no maintenance since installation. On August 7th, 2018 they called saying the unit was not cooling. Our techs found the outdoor unit completely plugged with dirt, performed an extensive maintenance to clean the unit and got it operating. Outdoor units often get plugged up with fine plant debris and dust (an especially widespread problem in Toronto usually stemming from neighbors renovating homes and/or road work).

On Sept 4 we were called saying the unit was not cooling again. We attended the home and found the unit low on refrigerant, and performed a leak test. A leak test requires putting system under pressure for 24-48 hours to determine the location of a leak when there are no obvious signs at any of the valves. The result of the test determined that the leak was in the indoor coil of the unit, a repair that is essentially replacing half the system, and so suggested that replacing the system would be a better choice to make. When systems become plugged with dirt they can overheat which can cause refrigerant leaks. Unfortunately, there is also no way of being able to guarantee the integrity of a system after it has been run in these circumstances. Mrs. Ivanyshyn’s situation serves as an important reminder to be proactive with looking after equipment. Mitsubishi make excellent ductless units, but they require maintenance. It’s really no different than cars. It doesn’t matter if you buy a Chevy or a Mercedes, if you don’t maintain your car, it will break.

Initial Call

I was looking for a company to do potential work on our heating and cooling systems. After contacting several companies via homestars and from the web, I am confident that if/when we go ahead with our work, we will choose Belyea. I spoke with Elaine on the phone. She was well informed and was easy to talk to. She even followed up with an email to recap all that was discussed. I definitely appreciate this level of professionalism and service.

Other companies that I contacted either couldn't answer questions or were just in a rush to come onsite without actually wanting to discuss what work was actually required! I didn't feel comfortable going ahead with those companies for obvious reasons.

Due to our background as a hot water heating specialists we are experts at planning and executing cooling solutions for houses without ductwork.

HEATING
At Belyea Bros. Limited we hold the first heating license issued in Toronto. As a result, we have the experience to claim, “there is nothing about heating we don’t know”. We are experts in hot water, radiant in-floor, snow melt systems and forced air heating. Over a number of years we have carefully selected the products that we recommend to our customers. We sell only manufacturers that have a proven track record of quality and service so that we can offer you the best support possible. All the manufacturers we work with have parts centers or distributors within the GTA meaning we have access to a local support network. We offer only reliable premium equipment.

HOT WATER TANKS
Water heater rentals are a great solution for many homeowners who have a short-to-medium time frame in their house, own a tenanted property, are looking for a peace-of-mind solution to address their domestic hot water needs, or simply wish to have a clear idea of their monthly house budget over the long term without the worry of heater repairs.

Many consumers are confused by which company they actually rent their water heater from, thinking that because the charge appears on their gas bill that they rent from “gas-company”. In fact, most customers in Toronto rent their heaters from Centrica PLC, an international energy services company based in the United Kingdom, which operates in Canada under the brand name Direct Energy™. Although they bill on the gas bill, they are not, in any way, affiliated with your gas utility.

Belyea Bros. has a wide range of hot water tank solutions for your family’s needs. We have an excellent rental program providing a comparable rate and great reliable products. We provide a fix rate increase, unlike the other guys who may raise your billing at anytime.

TANKLESS HOT WATER
Tankless hot water heaters are common in Europe and Japan. They can supply an endless supply of hot water, with greater energy savings than conventional tanks. They are, however, limited in the amount of hot water that can be produced at one time and the upfront costs are higher.

ELECTRICAL SERVICE
Belyea Bros. Electrical specializes in helping home and business owners in the older neighborhoods of Toronto. We provide electrical service, repair and installation whether it’s diagnosing and fixing a broken outlet, or re-wiring your whole home, Belyea Bros. Electrical is here to help.
