Barrie Construction Association Report special feature

Reliance Yanch Heating and Air Conditioning serves clientele throughout the central Ontario region with expertise and experience through its offices in Barrie and Collingwood.

Reliance has grown since 1997 to be one of Canada’s largest HVAC contractors, with offices in 20 cities and five provinces. In 2011, it acquired Yanch Heating, which, established in 1965, had grown to be the Barrie area’s pre-eminent heating, ventilation and HVAC contractor.  The company has an 18,000 sq. ft. headquarters and shop area and 3,000 sq. ft. showroom.

Through a core of long-term staff with decades of knowledge and expertise, the company serves more than 600 high-quality residential tract and custom home builders, offering an expanded range of services, including air source heat pumps and geothermal solutions.

“Air source heat pumps can reduce energy consumption by 25 to 40 per cent and geothermal solutions can save up to 70 per cent in heating, cooling and domestic hot water costs,” says sales manager Andrew Bell.

Through options to buy, rent and finance, the company offers solutions to meet every home and budget. Bell says renting heating and cooling equipment from Reliance is a particularly good choice. “You make no down-payment and your never have to pay for repairs ever again.”

Reliance also offers HVAC sales and rental, water heater rentals, and propane sales and rentals. The company fixes all furnace makes and models and offers service protection plans.

Beginning-to-end service with Reliance Yanch Home Comfort starts with a concept to meet the homeowner’s comfort needs, followed by full HVAC permit design. This includes a heat-loss analysis and duct design.  Next is a site visit during which designs may be adapted or customized to suit the customer’s needs.

Reliance Yanch Home Comfort has its own sheet metal shop, equipped with a plasma cutter.  This means designs can be fully customized for each project.

The company provides 24/7 service to customers in the Grey and Simcoe County regions and will go wherever its services are needed. For more information, visit
