If there’s such a thing as a heating ventilation air conditioning (HVAC) superstar, Trevor Hill is it. Knowledge, experience, professionalism and a loyal following – he’s got it all!
So when Lance Petty, owner of Courtenay-based Temprite Climate Solutions, had the opportunity to bring Hill on board, he knew he’d better make it happen.
“Trevor is extremely knowledgeable and well known in the industry locally, so we’re really glad to have him join our company,” says Petty, who welcomed Hill to his team November 14. “He’s not only going to help us keep up with demand, but he’ll also help ensure our growing customer base will keep being happy with the level of professional service we provide.”
So what does it take to lure a “superstar” refrigeration journeyman with a Gas B ticket, 11 years of local experience, and a loyal following that borders on groupie status? Hill says it had a lot to do with philosophy.
Having worked alongside Petty for a previous employer, Hill knew his new employer is committed to providing a healthy, positive environment that offers employees a balance between work, community and family.
“I know Lance understands that because he’s balancing a new young family, working as a volunteer with the fire department and running a successful company,” says Hill of his new employer. “Likewise, I have two young sons, aged eight and eleven, and am heavily involved with the Comox Valley Soccer Club as a coach and board member, so life outside of work is very full.
“At Temprite they’ve created a great team culture and working environment. Knowing your employer places value on time away from work makes for happy employees – and happy employees mean satisfied customers!”
Founded in 2013, Temprite Climate Solutions offers a full range of heating and cooling options for residential and commercial properties. According to Petty, part of his company’s success is its unique approach, both to the industry and to his employees.
“Of course we provide sales, service and installation of heat pumps, gas furnaces, water heaters and air quality systems, but what sets us apart from other heating and cooling companies is that we have a forward-thinking attitude when it comes to problem-solving,” he explains. We bring a flexible, fresh approach to working with customers.”
Hill, who has experience with both commercial and residential applications in refrigeration, gas, hydronics and other aspects of HVAC work, is Temprite’s eighth employee. Petty, for his part, couldn’t be more excited to add him to the team.
“With his specialized training in VRV (variable refrigerant volume) technology that’s shaping our industry, Trevor will mostly be installing and servicing heat pump systems for us. We’re super excited to have him join us!”
