Francis Plumbing & Heating is Ottawa’s Gold Standard for Service Excellence in HVAC & Plumbing Since 1933!

2020 & 2021 Has been a very difficult year for our friends and neighbours in Ottawa…

As an essential service provider we have safely and successfully worked through this pandemic – partially due to our very strict safety protocols but mostly due to our amazing team of experts who share our mission statement “We are only in business to serve our community and provide for our families“.

Instead of taking time off when the pandemic hit our team of experts took that mission statement to heart and went out to serve our community. Whether it was dropping off groceries or supplies to people in need on their way home after work, or bringing a coffee to someone isolated with no local family – our team was there and we couldn’t be more proud of them.

In recognition of our amazing team we have rebranded our company with our new Gold logo… our team of expert plumbers, HVAC technicians and gas fitters have really set the gold standard of excellence!

Our re-branded vans are still green – but that green means so much more to us today than ever before.  The green represents our global commitment to help our planet through greener technology for home heating and cooling while reducing our city’s carbon footprint by 200 tons of carbon per year.

To Francis Plumbing & Heating,

I called your company at 11:30 this morning – my water heater was “oozing water” from its’ base. Now it is 4pm and I have a brand new one! Good job!

You provided clear and comprehensive information on the phone, you stuck to the price you provided, your plumbers showed up when promised, and they even reworked the installation to provide more storage space in the basement.

Thank you – I am glad I didn’t take my business to others who say the offer the same services!
