Professional

Belyea completed work related to our underpinning. They lowered and installed our furnace, and washer/dryer. Though there were some hiccups, I was greatly impressed by their willingness to return and rectify the issues we had. Ryan Spain, in particular, was wonderful to work with. That human error sometimes occur is natural, yet not many are willing to apologize, and ably rectify the issue. I'd call Belyea Brothers again in a heartbeat.

Hot water heater replacement

Kudos for quick response time and prioritizing replacement. Dennis was courteous from start to finish, explained options available and provided recommendations based on our current and future needs. Went above and beyond to ensure our needs were met in a timely manner. Quality workmanship and respectful of home interior. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dennis and Belyea to future clients.

Dennis who came to check boiler

Dennis was amazing and explained what he was doing very patiently. I have never dealt with heating stuff earlier and it was very professionally dealt with. Thank you for sending Dennis. Thank you for the service Belyeas.

Overpriced!

Agreed to pay higher fees for "same day" service for a minor gas leak. They came but didn't repair. Had to wait until the next day for the repair to happen and was then charged almost $1000. Total rip off. They replaced one gas T and which took under an hour. After service was worse - left 2 voicemails and 2 emails and took 2 weeks for a response when I was basically told "tough luck". Overcharging customers and proud of it. Find independent contractors who will treat you better.

Company Response

We were contacted by Ms. Herbert on Sept 29 because a red tag had been issued for the gas line at a rental property she owns and she couldn’t get hold of her “regular guy”. Ms. Herbert was quoted our diagnostic charge for us to visit the property and determine what was needed to address the tag. She was then quoted a repair charge of $695+hst to perform the repair, then process and clear the red tag. She approved the work and it was performed the following day on Sept 30. She subsequently called in to complain about the charge for the work once everything was up and running. She was told that these were our charges, and that she had agreed to them prior to us undertaking the work.

Charges are always quoted to our clients before performing any work, and they are in addition to the diagnostic fee, which we explain on every call. Our flat rate takes into account the price of the part and/or materials, installation, picking up materials and/or shipping, our warranty coverage, our overhead (which includes the service department staff in the office), fleet fuel and maintenance, a 24 / 7 after-hours call centre, accounting, insurance, licensing, technical training, administrative processing, and finally the profit we need to generate in order to remain a competitive and viable business in Toronto during these inflationary times.

We do appreciate that it can be difficult to see all of the elements that go into a service call, and would like to reassure you that our diagnostic charge, and repair charges are similar to most medium and larger sized mechanical service companies in the GTA. It will always be a bigger investment to work with a company like ours than a tradesman in a truck, and we believe you will find good value in exchange for that investment in terms of responsiveness, thoroughness, and support over the long term.

Boiler Repair

Belyea replaced a part on my boiler that was leaking. Dennis, the repairman, wan courteous, knowledgeable and efficient and had no problem diagnosing the problem and replacing the necessary. Their response time was good and I would definitely use them again.

Old Home New Electrical Panel

We contracted Belyea Bros. to upgrade our electrical panel to 200 AMP and we received professional service from start to finish. The Electrical Dept manager visited our home, met with me, and clearly answered our questions BEFORE providing us a fair quote. He then took care of all the required paperwork, permits, and coordination with Toronto Hydro for an agreed upon date to shut off the power.

On the day of the scheduled work, a team of four arrived at our home at 8 a.m. and they worked endlessly under pressure to ensure that the installation was done before Toronto Hydro's scheduled appointment to restore the electrical power at the end of day. The electrical manager also visited the job site during the day to inspect the work and reassure us that everything was on track as planned. Once the power was restored, they remained until 6 p.m. to test all the circuits and label the panel box. They then did a walkthrough of the exterior to show us our new meter and back inside to demonstrate the new panel box and answer our questions. Finally, they cleaned up the work area as if they were never there.

As a homeowner, it was a pleasure to deal with a contractor that worked professionally, with integrity and clearly communicated to us the entire process and time involved. In summary, I highly recommend them if you want a worry free experience on one of the key components in your home.

Gas line replacement

My experience with Belyea Brothers was exceptional. We had a gas leak and my meter was shut off. Indy the service manager was extremely prompt from my initial inquiry which was made after hours. A service technician followed up the next day for an assembly and estimate. I was able to reach the service manager on the weekend to ask questions and book a service date. On the date of the service, both Dennis and Omid the licensed gas fitters, were extremely professional, knowledgeable and friendly.
They answered all of our questions and provided a top notch service, respecting mask wearing and shoe coverings. I would hire this company again.

Very happy with the service provided by Dennis. He was so friendly, efficient and did a great job cleaning the AC unit. Dennis ensured everything was fixed to our satisfaction. He also cleaned the area up prior to leaving. Thanks, Dennis and Belyea Bros. Would definitely recommend their services.

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.
