Lance founded Temprite Climate Solutions in 2013. He’s a registered Daikin Comfort Professional, a Certified Red Seal Refrigeration Technician, a Class B Registered Gas Fitter, and an Electrical Field Safety Representative. Lance is also certified in ventilation through the Thermal Environmental Comfort Association, as well as being certified in Refrigerant CFC Handling.
When he isn’t busy solving problems on the job, Lance spends his time binge-watching episodes of Walking Dead, crushing on Miley Cyrus and drinking aged scotch on epic camping trips.
Temprite Climate Solutions was founded by Lance Petty in 2013. After 10 years in the field, Lance decided the North Island needed a Heating/Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) company that looked at things a little differently. His capability of viewing a house as a complete system and his knowledge in taking advantage of today’s technology keeps Temprite customers beyond satisfied with their level of expertise and service.
At Temprite Climate Solutions we believe in staff that is diverse, well trained and professional.
From new construction to replacement systems, strong industry training helps our professional technicians solve any home comfort challenge. A thorough investigation of all aspects involved allows for accurate system diagnosis and helps our clients make informed decisions with their investments.
Certifications and Training – We fully support the Industry Training Authority (ITA) and the importance of training the next generation of quality technicians. That’s why every Temprite Climate Solutions technician is Red Seal Ticketed or enduring rigorous training through the ITA. But we don’t stop there! Every one of our technicians is continually attending courses from associations like TECA or Built Green to grasp a deeper knowledge of the industry.
We currently employ Red Seal Refrigeration Technicians, Red Seal Sheet Metal Technicians and BC ticketed B Gas fitters.
Andrea, Office Manager
Andrea is the glue that holds our office together. She’s a dispatching goddess and maintains exemplary customer service in any situation.
In her spare time, Andrea can be found drinking vanilla lattés and avoiding cauliflower and swimming pools. The three people living or dead that she’d invite to dinner are Elvis Presley, Johnny Depp and her grandma.
Project Coordinator / Office Manager
Leslie, Project Coordinator
Leslie is Temprite’s quirky multi-tasker extraordinaire. With plenty of babysitting experience behind her, she’s the perfect individual to look after our projects and keep an eye on the team.
On the weekend you can find her outside, most likely tending to her vegetable garden. And quite possibly sipping some gin.
Service Department Manager
Trevor, Service Department Manager
Trevor is a Refrigeration Journeyman and Certified Class B Gas Fitter. He’s also an Electrical Field Safety Rep in Refrigeration, certified in CFC Refrigerant Handling and has specialized training in VRV (variable refrigerant volume) technology.
A heat pump guru who made his way here from Ontario, Trevor loves all that the Valley has to offer, especially the mountain biking and kayaking opportunities. His ideal dinner party would include Bob Marley, David Beckham, and Simon Whitfield with some English Premier League on the telly.
Project Management | Sales
Keanan, Project Management | Sales
Keanan is a very outgoing project manager who loves what he does for a living. His designations include: Red Seal Certified Refrigeration Technician, B Ticket Gas Technician, TECA-certified and Electrical Field Safety Representative.
Keanan finds the Kardashian family just as annoying as people who don’t pick up after their dogs. On the weekend you can likely find him playing hockey and enjoying a few Lucky Lagers.
Jen, Service Coordinator
Jen is an administrative whiz and avid horse rider who thinks the best thing about her job is the coworkers she gets to spend her days with. (Thanks, Jen — you’re pretty awesome too!)
Her perfect weekend includes time with her horses, sticking to solid ground and watching Legally Blonde. She has a serious celebrity crush on Chris Hemsworth, so we wouldn’t be surprised if we also found her watching all those Marvel movies featuring Thor. But who could blame her?!
Kyle, Refrigeration Mechanic
Kyle is a refrigeration mechanic with Red Seal certification. He loves his flexible workweek because it gives him more time for camping and watching legal television dramas like Suits.
As long as they don’t interrupt him, Kyle fantasizes about having dinner with Joe Rogan, Jimmy Fallon and Neil Patrick Harris (DOOGIE!!). While dining, he would definitely serve his guests Coca-Cola . . .
Dominik, Refrigeration Mechanic
Sheet Metal Worker
Josh, Sheet Metal Journeyman
Josh is an easygoing sheet metal worker who can’t start his day without coffee.
He spends his weekends chilling with his family and watching the hunting television series MeatEater. We also think it’s pretty sweet that his fantasy dinner dates include his wife, Wayne Gretzky and Mike Myers.
Sheet Metal Apprentice
Mat, Sheet Metal Apprentice
Mat (yup, just one “t”) is an enthusiastic sheet metal apprentice with both TECA and
refrigeration handling certification. This Sci-Fi guy has Taylor Swift on his playlist, and
cranks “Shake it off” for motivation when cruising around in his work truck.
Mat would be the best dinner guest because he will eat anything. But if he’s doing the inviting, his wife tops his dream dinner party guest list, followed by Steve Smith and freestyle skier and base jumper Shane McConkey.
Tristan, Refrigeration Apprentice
Tristan is one witty fella living his childhood dream of installing residential furnaces. Coffee is his drink of choice, and he claims to be most happy when filling out piles of paperwork.
Tristan is really into Marxist sociology and is captivated by the work of Eric Wright. (We assume he means the author who explores socialist themes, not Easy-E.) This is likely why his greatest fear is minimum wage, and why he feels so strongly about taking Mondays off with pay.
Sheet Metal Journeyman
Jason, Sheet Metal Worker
Jay is a sheet metal journeyman with Red Seal certification. This awesome guy has a soft spot for Jennifer Aniston, but feels much differently about Tom Brady – perhaps not surprising
since he always wanted to be like Eric Lindros.
On the weekend, Jay can be found fishing and hunting (definitely not for snakes, though), or kicking back with a selection of his favourite candy while watching episodes of Gold Rush.
Sheet Metal Apprentice
Bradon, Sheet Metal Apprentice
Bradon is a skinny third-year sheet metal apprentice who’s ashamed to admit that Miley Cyrus is on his playlist. He will, however, easily admit that the best things about his job are his co-workers and the steady amount of work Temprite sends his way.
A big fan of Trailer Park Boys, it’s no surprise that Bradon says he would invite Ricky, Bubbles and Julien for dinner if given the chance. (He’d serve Red Bull with the appetizers, and anything other than seafood for the main course.)
Grant brings many strengths to the Temprite team. He’s someone who has built his own home and takes great pride in his workmanship, so we know we can trust him with any task. It doesn'thurt that he also brings a shared love of hockey and fishing (equally important as skills around here!).
On the weekend you could easily find Grant binging old episodes of Suits or keeping up with the
Royal Family in the tabloids — this guy has a serious crush on the Duchess of Sussex!
Comfort Advisor / Class B Gasfitter
When not helping clients, Adam can be found camping, surfing, golfing or just chilling with his family (watching Game of Thrones if he has any control over the remote). Despite a healthy fear of heights, or maybe because of it, Adam says his proudest achievement was jumping off a 60’ waterfall in Costa Rica. Oh, and his two daughters too!
Sheet Metal Journeyman
Shawn, Sheet Metal Worker
Shawn is a fearless certified sheet metal journeyman who says he’s proud to be part of such a solid team. He started his career cleaning up in his dad’s sheet metal shop, but says always had the desire to be a firefighter.
On the weekends you can find him playing hockey, camping and spending time with his kids. An avid hockey fan, Shawn would jump at the chance to knock back a few cold beers with Wayne Gretzky and Brent Burns.
Reid, Refrigeration Apprentice
Reid is a super cool third-year refrigeration apprentice who wants nothing more than happy customers. In his down time, you can often find him watching Planet Earth and sipping cranberry juice.
Reid also enjoys a few rounds of disc golf. Just don’t ask this acrophobiac to climb any tall trees to retrieve a disc.
Class B Gasfitter
Class B Gasfitter
Chris is an awesome addition to our team. He’s a hard-working Class B Gasfitter who enjoys our relaxed, positive atmosphere and being part of a team that’s always looking for ways to improve. (Keep those compliments coming, Chris!)
Chris works tirelessly all week, but when weekend arrives you’ll find him catching up on sleep, hitting the trails on his mountain bike or knocking back a cold beer — or two. Toss in some sunshine, a clutter-free environment and a little Netflix binging and you’ve got yourself a recipe for Chris’s ideal weekend.
Rarely one to back down from a challenge, Chris’s proudest achievement is riding up to Maui’s Haleakala Crater on his road bike. That’s 60 km uphill from sea level to an elevation of over 10,000 feet!
