Annual Maintenace

I can’t say enough good things about Distinct. We first used them several years ago when one of the furnaces in the house we just moved into started to leak (they were only a couple years old). Luckily the previous owner had a warranty/service plan and Distinct went above and beyond to help us get it transferred over to our name. Ever since then we’ve used them for our annual maintenance. They are always professional, on time, and provide exceptional service. We’ve had the same technician, Ed, doing our service for a while now which is an added bonus since he knows the maintenance history and provides recommendations that I trust. All round a top notch company!

Two Furnaces and so much more.

We recently moved into a home that was built in 1987 and was in need of a new furnace...which caused me to start researching someone to do this massive job. I came accross a recomendation for Nate (Distinct Heating and Cooling) through a neighbourhood information site. We had Nate come in to give me an estimate (first of all that is the sign of a good company to work with...it was the owner how came to do the estimate and not just a "sales guy".) Nate took the time to answer all questions and gave honest answers. We knew we were dealing with more of a challenge replacing two furnaces from a house and with new permits had to get a little more creative. We felt good from the beginning that we were getting someone in our home who was going to do the job right and not cut corners. Sure enough...we have just had his crew in for the last few days and we are so impressed by the finished job. Two new furnaces, a hot water tank and new venting. The area was cleaned up and Christian was meticulous. You can tell that everyone working for Nate takes pride in their work. We cannot say enough good things about our experience with this company and will be using them again if the need arises.

Furnace Service - Professional, Punctual

I just wanted to let you know how wonderful it was to deal with Distinct. I had called in an emergency 2 days ago after hours and the gentleman that answered my emergency was very professional, explained everything to me, let me know when to expect a call the next day; a pleasure to deal with. That passed on to the next day when I received a call exactly when I was told in the morning and they scheduled me in that same day! The service techs showed up literally to the minute of when they said they would and they were VERY professional, informed me of everything they were doing and let me know pricing. I do too work in the service industry and your service is top notch and definitely something i will be measuring others as well as even my own service skills to. Thanks very much, it was an absolute pleasure in dealing with you guys, you have a great company.
No point in calling anyone else for Heating and Cooling service, Distinct is the go to company!

New Furnace

We decide to have Distinct Heating & Cooling replace our furnace after meeting with Nate. Nate spent time reviewing our options on the type of furnace and thermostat we might want to consider. The meeting was great and the final decision was ours to make. The date for the installation was set.
A reminder from the office was sent to us a day prior to the installation and the day of the installation a notice was sent to inform us who was coming and a time of their ETA. AAthan and Christian were punctual and started with the installation immediately. They took time to explain each phase of the installation and answered any questions we had for them.. They were both professional, respectful, polite and knowledgeable.
We are very happy with our decision to have Distinct Heating & Cooling replace our 30 year old furnace and would highly recommend them.

Courteous, professional, punctual

We received quotes for an AC installation from four companies. Distinct came in high in terms of cost but we gave them our business due to the overwhelmingly positive reviews we've seen.

The staff we dealt with were patient, punctual, and professional in every interaction. The communication from their office was excellent and gave us clear expectations for each step in the process, from the initial installation through to the city inspections.

Their work is tight and tidy. All of the cabling and piping looks terrific. They were in and out exactly when they said they would be and left their workspaces inside and outside very clean.

I cannot overstate how painless and straightforward it has been to deal with Distinct. They have been stone cold professionals from start to finish. They have demonstrated that they are well worth their price.

Installation - New Furnace and Central Air Conditioning

This is a 1st Class outfit - bar none. I got 5 quotes and this outfit outshone everyone else on every level.

Nate heads up the sales and marketing and does a superb job - mainly because he knows exactly what he is talking about - he is a fully qualified technician himself and knows the products inside and out. Most importantly he knows the precise installation requirements for the home. He answers every question thoughtfully and provides a lot of information. You know exactly what you are getting.

Nate's installation team, Jordan and Christian, were very professional and personable. Really solid technicians who know what they are doing. They were highly focused on their work and getting the job done to a very high standard - which they most certainly achieved. Nate has a solid and well-grounded team backing him up.

Also a shout out to Dannii, the office coordinator, who was great in following-up with the promotion rebate and scheduling in the city inspections for electrical and gas, etc. - always cheerful and helpful!

Impressive - as I said a 1st class outfit. Highly recommend Distinct.

Great overall experience

Excellent work overall. Nate was comprehensive in his quote and clearly knows his stuff at an expert level. The crew was fantastic and super easy to work with. They showed up on time every day, completed all the work scoped with no fuss, and - as crazy as this sounds - charged me what was quoted in the first place. Unbelievable.

Totally worthwhile experience and would highly recommend Distinct to anyone interested.

Replace Furnace and Central Air Conditioner

Nate, with Distinct, was knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions on replacing our furnace and central air conditioner. The two gentlemen who installed the new units were easy to deal with and did a fine job.

Great Planning and Execution for Full System Replacement

Nate came to our home and discussed our needs, answered our questions, made important recommendations, and gave us a timely, detailed quote. The execution of Nate and his team was as scheduled and of high quality. We were well-trained by the installation team, and left with all the pertinent background books and information. Back office support was first rate throughout the process. We are so pleased with the results, and feel we have a first rate, extremely reliable system for years to come.

Air conditioner and furnace upgrade

Met Nate the owner on the quote and sale, exceptionally skilled/knowledgeable. Explained choices/benefits/costs simply and clearly. No pressure, fully transparent. Far different than competitive quotes/sales. Then had PROFESSIONAL technicians Kristian and Jordan at our home for the 2 day install, programming, commissioning. An enjoyable experience. They didn't leave until the work locations where spotless and we where comfortable with the app/operations. The installed equipment and piping/electrical is plumb, straight, level....about as close to 'art' as HVAC equipment can be. Exceptional work.
