I own a small townhouse in Leslieville that was renovated years ago, replacing the furnace with electric baseboard heating. Summer cooling has been managed by a cumbersome pair of window air conditioners. Both systems are relatively expensive to run for the size of the house. I received a flyer from Belyea Brothers and decided to enquire about a Daiken heat pump after recently experiencing one in a hotel stay.
I was connected with their System Consultant, Jamieson. He immediately did a COVID-friendly assessment of the house and put together a recommendation, which to my surprise included both heating and cooling. His solution matched well with my vision of the requirements.
The Daiken system was delivered a week later and installed by Jit and his assistant Anwar. The installation team were awesome. They worked all day without a break. The workmanship was flawless, they cleaned up after each unit was installed, and they explained each step of the process to me as it evolved.
The crowning moment was when the neighbours (who were somewhat concerned about the noise level of the unit in the alley between our houses) got a tour of the unit while it was running. I took them to hear the noise level of the heat pump, but alas they could not hear it because their clothes dryer was running and the noise of the dryer vent drowned out the sound of the heat pump. We were all very pleased and they said they should look at getting a new dryer to reduce the noise level in the alley …
Overall, it was a very positive experience with this company and its employees!
