Tempco serves Powell River

“We know that having the right people on the job is just as important as choosing the right equipment." ~ Tye Leishman, Tempco Heating & Cooling Specialists

16 years ago, Tye Leishman had an idea to start a local business focused on providing the highest level of customer service, employing a fantastic staff 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,” explains Tye. “Providing such a high level of professionalism, many customers initially think Tempco is a franchise. Tempco is 100 per cent locally owned, operated and completely independent; 100 per cent Powell River."

Tye is extremely proud of the highly trained expertise and capability of the team members. They include André Huiberts, Colin Turner, Dean Merrick, Mike D’onofrio, Alex Chifan, John Rapp, Parker Maclean, Spencer Sommerville, Jeanette Haas, Shannon Thompson, Rebecca Coleman and Carly Missio.

“We know that having the right people on the job is just as important as choosing the right equipment,” says Tye.

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 class A and B 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; Tempco truly is your one-stop local HVAC shop,” adds Tye. “Whether you’re considering upgrading your existing home heating system, having your existing heating system tuned up and safety inspected to be ready for this winter, or even looking to add air conditioning to your home for next summer’s heat, Tempco is the number-one trusted choice Powell River homeowners have been choosing since 2006.”

Tye says the company lets its testimonials speak for themselves.

“In 2010 we decided to replace our natural gas furnace and investigate getting a heat pump; we solicited several quotes from local suppliers and for all the right reasons went with Tempco,” say customers Bill and Janet Chinn. “Since then, we have never looked back. Tempco has been providing all our heating/cooling needs and we couldn’t be more pleased. Right from the first day we met them, their knowledge, attention to detail, courteous and professional service told us all we needed to know.

“Not only do we have them back every year for our annual inspections, but whenever new issues arise, they are quick to respond and look after us in every way. Tempco may not be the only heating/cooling specialists in town, but for our money they are second to none.

“They are locally owned, employ local people, and their ongoing support in the community makes them a perfect choice. There is a reason they have been around longer than any of their local competitors.”

Tempco staff encourages all current and future customers to drop by and visit the staff at 7239 Duncan Street. The company has an operational heat pump on display as well as lots of information on all their energy efficient products.

“Tempco employees are always happy to provide details on their products and services,” says Tye. “Whether you are considering installing a new high efficiency heating system, air conditioning or want to ensure your existing heating system is operating at maximum efficiency, readers can contact Tempco at 604.485.5352, or send an email to”
