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.

New Heating System

We have had Fernando and Jonathan from Belyea Bros. help us with our boiler and air conditioning maintenance for many years now. They have done such a great job for us, that when it came to replace our heating system, we decided to use Belyea Bros. again. We are so glad we did.

Our first contact was with Jamieson, who was very knowledgeable and such a delight to deal with, as he led us through every step. Of course, many things had changed in the 27 years since our last system was installed. With Jamieson’s advice, we not only got just the right system for our older North Toronto home, but decided to remove all the old piping and relocate everything into a new Furnace Room. We are so happy with the end result.

On the day the work began, Jamieson arrived to go over final details and introduce us to Andrew and Marko, our installers. From the start, it was clear that Andrew and Marko really cared about us and wanted to make sure that the installation went off without a hitch...which it did. They were great to communicate with, kept us up to date as the work progressed and were always happy to answer our questions. True professionals who really know their trade. Whenever there was an opportunity for them to do something extra they did that to. During the 3 days of work, we were never without heat and only hot water for a very brief time. The work site was so neat and clean after the job was done too!

Thanks so much to Andrew, Marko and Jamieson for everything. We would never hesitate to recommend this company.

Annual boiler cleaning

I have been using Belyea to maintain our furnace for quite a few years and the technicians are always prompt and perform the work well. We have had a couple of no heat occurrences on a weekend and someone is dispatched within a few hours.

Furnace Repair

Dylan replaced a blower and motor on my furnace today. He was the ultimate professional. The job was completed in good time and the work area was left neat and tidy. I would highly recommend Belyea Brothers.

Heating & Air Conditioning

COOLING
At Belyea Bros. we install and service a range of air conditioning systems including forced air (central) air conditioning, ductless split air conditioners, and our custom designed Attic Pak and SpacePak systems. 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.
