“Francis Plumbing and Heating is an outstanding customer focused company. We wanted a locally owned family company to install a new furnace and air conditioner. We learned that many local companies are not locally or Canadian owned. Right from our first call, Brianna the office assistant was courteous, efficient and professional. Next, we met Ray who came to our home to do an estimate. He answered all our questions and went out of his way to provide us with the answers to all our many questions. We had estimates from other companies. It became obvious from the start that Francis stood out with their attention to customer service.
The installers ( Josh, Kyle E. ) were extremely efficient and spent time cleaning their work area pristinely. Kyle Scott provided excellent follow up service.
Don, the manager treated us with the utmost respect and kindness.
Kay Francis sends out regular customer emails with information on seasonal topics such as how to avoid frozen pipes and starting up your air conditioner. We were beyond delighted and comforted to receive emails from Kay during the pandemic offering any assistance such as picking up groceries!!
We highly recommend this locally owned family business. You will have peace of mind with your important home mechanical investment.

Many thanks to all the Francis Plumbing and Heating Team.

“Amazing team of consultants, professionals and service people. Complete replacement of a combination boiler for hot water heating system and domestic hot water. Extremely neat installation of a complicated system and excellent job site clean up. Over-delivered on getting domestic hot water working after first day. Thank you. Quality, meticulous workmanship. Shout out to: Graham, Corey and Kyle S. Since the front-line workers likely reflect the company’s vision and business philosophy I would recommend this company without hesitation.

“For years we have relied on Francis Plumbing for our plumbing needs, so we did not hesitate to switch to Francis for our heating and cooling needs from another reputable Ottawa company. Last week, Francis installed a new furnance and A/C for us. Ian and Kyle did the installation and we were so impressed by their professionalism and knowledge (and they are just nice guys).

We are very happy with the final product. Ian and Kyle used the space in our basement so much more effectively than the previous company which leaves us more room to move around. They replaced some of our duct work, and did a number of other improvements that should have been done by the previous company. On top of this, their work was very clean including laying out mats across our home for their feet.

I rarely write Google reviews, but I wanted to take the time to do so to share this great experience with Francis and say thank you to Ian and Kyle.

“I recently had an air conditioner installed to replace my 30 year old one. I was very satisfied of the knowledgeable and professional service that I received, from the sales associate who came to give me a quote and explain how to get the best air conditioner for the size of my house (actually needed a smaller unit than I ordered had), to the installation done by Ian and Kyle E, who did an amazing job at installing the new unit, removing tho old unit, and leaving the area spotless. I am very happy with my new unit, it’s very quiet and cools much better now upstairs than the old one! I had a very positive experience, and would highly recommend Francis Plumbing and Heating for your air conditioning needs!

“This company were so kind and responsive when we found ourselves with a broken water heater in the middle of a brutal cold snap. They came extremely quickly after I contacted them, gave me a fast, accurate quote, and did an excellent job with our water heater installation, which came at a great price with an awesome warranty. Aaron and Brendan – the technicians who installed it for us, were professional, friendly, and did an excellent job. I am so happy with our experience with them.

“I just wanted to send a brief note to thank you for the great recommendations you gave us in terms of replacing our ancient air conditioning system. You had some really impressive insights into what we needed to consider (size of unit, efficiency rating, features, benefits, additional options etc.). I’m sure we’ll not only enjoy a more efficient, cleaner and cooler air flow in our house but also some longer term energy cost savings.

I also want to commend Mike and his colleague on their professionalism during the installation process. The main AC system and the add-ons (new filter system, new cold air return vent, Wi-Fi thermostat) were very cleanly installed inside and out. Superb workmanship!

Thanks once again.

“I aw writing to let you know how pleased I was with Shane’s work. He came right on time, was pleasant and professional. The work that he didn’t wasn’t straightforward but he had no difficulty in completing the task. Please ensure this e-mail gets placed on his file and that he gets this positive feedback.

“Dear Mr. Francis,

This is just to let you know that I am pleased with the emergency service re a burst pipe that I received from Francis from the moment I phoned until the completion of the job.

Jeff, whom I have had before, came earlier today and did the emergency work in the basement. In order to reach where the burst pipe was, he got his feet completely wet and yet he did not at all hesitate to do what was necessary.

I have always received good service from Francis, but I think Jeff’s attitude (and skill) needs a word of especial praise.

“My furnace stopped working on a cold winter night. Francis Plumbing and heating showed up in no time. The technician was friendly, professional and spent time explaining the system and options for replacing it some day. As it turns out, the tech eventually discovered my 50-year boiler furnace was leaking and no longer safe to operate. Francis provided me space heaters free of charge, then a quote, and suggested other companies that do a lot of boiler work so I could get other quotes. They responded to my questions about warranty and such. The installation started the next day. To my eye the installation was well done – piping work well laid out and clean soldering, exterior venting and electrical work excellent, etc. The new furnace, which also provides domestic hot water, works really well.”

“To the staff of Francis Plumbing and Heating,

I am a contractor that has done business with Francis for many years and always received excellent service.

Recently a client contacted me by email early in the morning because their hot water tank had started leaking at 5:30am. I was able to email and phone in for service to be carried out. The result was that by 11:30am the same morning everything was complete. Very impressive! More than that the client has told me that the work was carried out in a very professional manor by Dan and Damion. Apparently they explained things throughout the process, showed a lot of respect for the home with careful work and wrapped up with a very neat and clean work site.

Thank you for looking after this client so well, it makes me look very good too!

“I want to thank you for the quick service provided by Francis Plumbing. We were very pleased by the work of Shane, his promptness on two occasions this past week, his efficiency and pleasant attitude. Two years ago we had the same great service from Francis through the work of Damion. We have been more than satisfied with your products and so good to know that we can rely on such a good company to deal with.

Thanks again for addressing our needs and receiving such excellent service.
Heather & Cy Aiken”


“I just wanted to thank you for the quick response and service during for our emergency furnace repair. As always our service technician (Glen) was very courteous, and professional. Thank you Team Francis😊

“Just wanted to send along a comment regarding the service provided by Jeff a couple of weeks ago. He performed excellent work, was courteous and did his best to keep costs down with an unexpected repair of a botched do-it-yourself job. Please pass on my thanks and this comment to whoever should be informed.

“Dear Dave:

This email is to thank Shane Delaney for the excellent work he performed. Working on plumbing pipes in a 100 year-old house is not an easy job. Shane persevered, there were 2 problems:

1) Finding the origin of a water leak. Which pipe was leaking water into the basement apartment?

2) Clearing the clogged kitchen drain in our apartment due to rubble from part of a collapsed pipe.

I appreciate his professionalism and excellent customer service approach.

I would also like to thank Ellen for always being helpful and considerate whenever I called. This process took 5 weeks, so there were many phone calls to Ellen. She is an excellent representative for Francis Plumbing.

“Hi Kay, I just used your company. Service was excellent!”
Morah McDonald”


“Thanks for sending an excellent plumber for this plumbing inspection. He found two items that needed attention and which were duly addressed. The plumber really knows what he is doing – he was also able to point out a problem left unbeknownst to us by our last contractor who had supplied his own plumber. Your plumber takes the trouble to explain what he is doing and why, much appreciated.

I signed a service agreement, as I have had cause to regret any time I had plumbing done by anyone except Francis.

“Good afternoon,

Just wanted to send you a note thanking you for the fabulous service we received from Shane D. this morning.

He was friendly, respectful and listened to our concerns regarding the water hammering issue we’ve been
experiencing. He explained to us how he was going to fix it and did it in a timely manner.

Fabulous customer service!

In the future (hoping he wont need to call a plumber again ; ) but if we do, we wouldn’t hesitate to call Francis Plumbing or to refer friends in need of your services.
Kind regards, Roxanne & Perry White – Bayswater Ave”
