HVAC

This was a rush job as our heater went kaput on a Friday on the coldest week of the winter. We had two contractors come out on the Friday to appraise the situation , assess and price out the replacement. Subsequently we remembered being recommended on Belyea some time ago and contacted them on the Saturday.
David [last name removed--Ed] responded to our call and came in person within an hour; he passed on additional helpful advice and priced out a very competitive price for the installed unit . He also guaranteed that he would be able to obtain and install the furnace of our choice on the Monday which the other two contractors could not guarantee.
The Belyea installers were at our front door early on the Monday morning as promised, and seemed to do a very thorough job including a good clear up of their debris and the old unit ; and also above and beyond the call of duty a good clean up inside of part of the ductwork . We were given the usual instruction on operating the system upon completion of work. David [last named removed-- Ed] called us later in the day to follow up and also visited us the following day to make sure that we were happy with and understood the operation of the unit etc.
We have also had a follow up from the company ( a few weeks after the installation ) to make sure that we are pleased with the system.

A satisfied customer.

Install high efficiency comination boiler and rads

With our 25 year-old boiler on its last legs, and the 2009-10 rebate program deadline fast approaching, we contacted 4 local suppliers of high efficiency boilers (after first doing lots of on-line research). Each of the suppliers responded quickly and provided estimates and recommendations. Belyea's rep Bruce, however, provided a great deal more information and offered to have the company's owner, David, come to review the potential installation. This he did and pointed out the benefit of installing the higher coast option of a combination boiler, one that would would provide heating as well as domestic hot water on demand, thus removing the 40-gallon hot water tank.

At the same time, we asked for a quotation on extending radiators into our ground floor addition (heated by wasteful electric baseboard heaters). David returned to provide a very accurate measurement of the room's requirement and we agreed to install low slim-line rads - essentially getting "free Heat".

The boiler we chose is a Baxi wall-hung unit - this gained us space in the basement and provided a very neat installation. The crew were prompt, efficient, courteous and clean. The main install was done in a day, with the extra rads installed a day later.

We have now had a winter's worth of experience and I can say the system performs perfectly.

I have already recommend Belyea to friends.

High efficiency gas fired boiler installation, old building

I was in the market for a residential high efficiency gas fired boiler and Belyea Brothers was one of 5 companies that I approached. I was not " over sold " by Belyea into purchasing equipment that was not nessasary or not appropriate. The contract price was competitive compared to the other contractors. Peter and his installation crew were efficient, excellent workmanship and left the site as if no one had been there. After the work was completed there was a follow up phone call from the Belyea office to ask if there were any questions or concerns. First class.

installation and servicing of tankless boiler

Beylea Brothers installed a tankless boiler in our house during an extensive renovation six years ago. Then last week it malfunctioned (late at night) and we were treated to their exceptional service. The problem took some work to resolve but they went all out and did it and, because we are insured with them, it was also very inexpensive! All to often service people do not get acknowledged but our recent experience has underlined why it is imperative to go with established smaller companies who really pay attention to their service side. Every repair person who has come to our house from their company has been exceptional. Also, as they return each year to clean the boiler, they remember our house and our specific issues. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Air Conditioning Installation

When you own an old Toronto home, you're encountering many "firsts". I've never had to buy and have an air conditioner installed before so I had to do my due diligence and meet with at least 5 companies before making a selection.

From first impression, Steve [last name removed--ED], from Belyea Brothers stood out from the other people I met. He took the time to walk me through my details and options. And didn't put pressure on a single brand, price, or system. He explained the pros and cons of each, and provided his own recommendation (thankfully, not the most expensive one).

He also set, met and exceeded my expectations on the installation. The crew at Belyea Brothers was respectful, and actually worked while they were working. The process and install didn't disrupt any part of my regular day, which I appreciated.

We've had the A/C installed for a couple of years now, without issue.

From my point of view, they come highly recommended.

tankless water heater

Phillip was extremely informative when I initially called for information on tankless water heaters; David was timely, helpful and informative when he came in to see whether it was feasible in our house and Karl and his associate were timely, polite, efficient when they installed the unit and even helped me by loading the old water tank into my car so I could get rid of it. They came highly recommended by a friend and entirely lived up to their reputation.

Replaced A/C, Furnace & Water Heater

Bought a 30 year old house and decided to upgrade the HVAC and Water heater. The folks at Belyea Bros. Limited were extremely helpful in recommending the most efficient and cost effective products for my needs. They installed the new A/C unit, furnace and a Navien Instant water heater. The installers were very skilled and timely in the process. I'm very pleased with my new system(and the savings) and would highly recommend Belyea Bros. Limited

installation of new boiler

I had to get a new boiler as my old one had broken down and had to be repaired. From the initial telephone enquiry to the completion of the new high efficiency boiler, this company was excellent. I panicked when realizing the high cost of boilers but it was patiently explained to me why and how they work. At their suggestion, I had an environmental audit done so that I qualify for a government rebate in addition to the home renovation credit. The actual work was done including a new chimney liner and the installation work was top quality, efficient, capable, and working perfectly. Very highly recommend this company.

New Boiler and Tankless Hot Water Heater Install

We decided to purchase a new boiler from Belyea Bros. in September 2008 as the old house we bought had one of those monster cast iron jobs with asbestos, etc. AFTER removing our old boiler, the technician/sales manager advised us that their chimney person would not be able to put the required liner in due to the pitch of our roof and they would need to call a specialist in. The specialist advised that due to the condition of our chimney, they could not insert a liner and so we could not use the boiler as originally agreed on!

Our only option was a high efficiency boiler which vented out the side of the house at over $2,000 additional cost or to redo the chimney at about $10,000. This was a suprise to us, especially after they already removed our old boiler and now had very limited options!

With little to no option from our perspective, we put in the more expensive unit.

We ended up not being happy with the overall experience and think that the chimney, being a major part of the work, would have been scoped properly before the project had started and the original boiler being removed. After discussing this with the company, we were assured that there is no way to confirm the condition of the old chimney before the old boiler is removed. Removal is step one in the job.... I would suggest anyone looking to replace their entire heating system to be VERY sure that every part of the job has been taken into consideration and ask lots of questions BEFORE work starts. Especially if you have an older chimney.

ductless air conditioner service

We called Belyea because they were highly recommended. We wanted an HVAC professional to take a look at a leaky ductless unit in a home we just purchased, and advise us on if we should bother fixing it, as well as on the overall state of both units in our home. We wanted to know if they were in good enough shape to be serviced, if they should be replaced, if they were optimally installed, etc. This seemed like a fairly standard sort of consultation, that we expected to pay for. On the phone with the office, it became clear that we had two options:
1- get a technician who would ONLY service the leaky unit, but not look at anything else in regards to the system overall
2- get an estimator for an entirely new system who would not offer any advice on the existing system.
I thought I'd misunderstood these options, but no. It appears Belyea does not offer any sort of consultation on an existing system. Surprising - seems like a perfect sales opportunity to me, but anyway... We opted for the technician. He came, barely spoke English and could not tell us anything about why our unit wasn't working and how long it would live. When my husband tried to ask a few questions, the tech intimated that if we weren't interested in getting the fix, he would need to leave as he had other jobs to get to.
We couldn't believe why folks have been so happy with this company. They seem to be missing out on a fairly significant business opportunity by refusing to offer consultation to people like us who may indeed be in the market for an entirely new system, but would just like to know that, or who would be good customers for servicing for some time and then stick with the vendors they know when it comes time to replace. Everyone knows it's way better to retain a customer than find a new one, and though we were Belyea customers once, we most certainly never will be again.

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.
