13 years ago, Tye Leishman had an idea to start a local business focused on providing the best customer service, employing the highest trained technicians and at the same time supporting the community as a whole.
Tempco, Powell River’s Heating & Cooling Specialists, was born and the idea has been very successful, according to the company’s owner.
“Providing such a high level of professionalism, many customers initially think Tempco is a franchise,” says Tye. “Tempco is 100 per cent locally owned, operated and completely independent; 100 per cent Powell River.
Whether customers are considering upgrading their existing home heating system, having their existing heating system tuned up and inspected to be ready for this winter, or looking to add air conditioning to their home for next summer’s heat, Tempco is the number-one trusted choice Powell River homeowners have been choosing for more than 13 years, adds Tye.
The company has been helping homeowners save money and improve the comfort of their homes by upgrading existing heating systems and air conditioning with the installation of high efficient heat pumps, natural gas furnaces and fireplaces, including Rinnai natural gas tankless hot water heaters. Tempco is also the factory authorized specialists in Powell River for Daikin, AirEase and YORK heating systems, Fujitsu and Mitsubishi high efficient heating and cooling systems and can provide expert service and repairs to all manufacturers models. “If you require service, Tempco is the one to call,” says Tye.
Tempco has recently been chosen as the only BC Hydro and FortisBC home renovation registered contractor in Powell River.
“This will enable us to connect with many more great Powell River customers who are looking for the right energy saving, heating solution for their home,” explains Tye.
Tye says he is extremely proud of the highly trained expertise and capability of team members including Matt McDowell, Mike D’onofrio, André Huiberts, Colin Turner, Dean Merrick, Jeffery Chernoff, Zak Forsyth, Keith Parkhouse, Jeanette Haas, Crystal Burnett, Breanna Di Pasquale and Paige Stephens. Tempco HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) technicians are expertly trained to handle any heating, air conditioning or commercial refrigeration requirements. Company qualifications include government Red Seal certified tradesmen, including refrigeration journeymen, electrical journeymen and gas fitters.
“Being an electrical contractor enables us to complete a variety of different jobs from start to finish, without the need to hire outside subcontractors,” says Tye. “Tempco truly is your only, one-stop local HVAC shop.”
With energy efficiency and rising energy costs on everyone’s minds these days, Tempco is proud to offer many different choices for upgrading existing heating systems with attractive homeowner rebates available. Currently, there is more than $4,000 available in home heating rebates from BC Hydro and FortisBC, depending on customer requirements.
“Now really is the perfect time to consider investing in high efficiency for your home and enjoy year-round money saving comfort,” says Tye.
Tempco has replaced and installed hundreds of new high efficient heating systems over the past 13 years in Powell River, greatly reducing the overall carbon footprint of the community. Reducing carbon emissions is one thing Tempco takes seriously and just this summer, the company purchased an electric assist bicycle for short trips around town, rather than driving.
“It just adds to the high level of service and expertise we are able to offer to Powell River homeowners,” says Tye.
Tempco staff encourages all current and future customers to drop by for a visit at 7239 Duncan Street, where an operational heat pump is on display as well as lots of information on all energy efficient products.
