Meet Our Team

Every member of the Dr HVAC team is a dedicated professional who is committed to providing you with the best possible service. It’s the Dr HVAC way to go above and beyond the call of duty, as you’ll read in some of the stories below.

When you open your door to one of our technicians, you can feel confident that you’re getting a licensed professional – and a nice guy. All of our technicians must have their Gas Fitter 2 license (or better), a great attitude, and pass a criminal background check before we hire them.

The Learning Never Stops

Our entire team has made a commitment to ongoing learning to keep pace as technology improves. We do this in several ways:

We have weekly meetings to to share knowledge and ensure everyone is up to date with the latest processes.

  • We visit our manufacturers to take courses and workshops.
  • We encourage our technicians to take time out to study for additional licenses and certifications.
  • We know that to be the best, we must always keep raising the bar higher each and every day.

Do you want to be a part of a team like this?

Dr HVAC is growing and we’re looking for great people. If you’re interested in a career in HVAC, you can see our available positions here.

Bryan, Service Technician

Bryan has been working in the heating and cooling industry since graduating from Humber College’s Gas Fitting program in 2013.

“I actually started out in customer service for an HVAC manufacturer. I liked it so much I started night school.”

For Bryan, getting people what they need is the best part of the job. “Whether it’s heat or air conditioning, it feels good to help. I remember during a bad heat wave, a woman with a newborn needed her AC repaired. Other companies were telling her it would be days before they could see her. I came on a Saturday and was luckily able to fix the problem quickly. She was so grateful she gave me apples for the road as a thank you.”

Bryan also loves being able to educate homeowners about what he does. “I’m a nerd for my work. I enjoy teaching people about it, and encourage homeowners to stay with me and ask questions about the large appliances in their homes.”

In his free time, you’ll find Bryan bowling, playing board games, watching movies, or working out.

Bruna is our Home Comfort Expert. She’s the friendly face who comes to your home to take measurements, photographs, and give you a professional presentation of your options. “I do everything to take care of your home needs,” she explains.

Bruna has a background in customer service and sales, and spends a lot of time training as part of the Dr. HVAC team. She goes on ride-alongs with our technicians and takes training sessions whenever she can.

At other companies, Bruna was always resolving customer complaints. What she likes about Dr. HVAC is that she’s always getting compliments on the services we provide. “I like the positive feedback; I’ve built a lot of positive relationships with clients,” she says.

It’s not just the clients that make Bruna happy to be here. “Dr. HVAC has helped me fulfill my potential. I never thought I could do what I’m doing now, and I know I want to keep doing this far into the future.”
When asked whether she had any customer stories, Bruna had trouble picking just one. “There are so many situations where clients are grateful; one man was so happy he was getting his furnace the next day he invited me to stay for dinner!”

“I love that I can build these relationships, and build trust and faith in Dr. HVAC,” she says.

When not helping clients, Bruna stays busy with running, yoga, reading, and her favourite home and garden television shows.
