Bridgeman Plumbing and Heating general manager Laurel Simon and the rest of the staff encourage their customers to donate new or gently used jackets for Burnside Gorge Community Association’s Coats for Kids campaign, as well as non-perishable food items. Doing so will earn you a discount off services rendered by Bridgeman technicians.

Coats for Kids keeping the community warm

Bridgeman Plumbing and Heating teams with community association on annual campaign

Staying warm during the colder months is important, especially for children and youth who need their energy for learning.

That’s why the folks at Bridgeman Plumbing and Heating have partnered with the Burnside Gorge Community Association on its Coats for Kids campaign. As part of its broad mandate, the Association undertakes programs that help make life a little easier for families living in poverty or on limited incomes.

Through the fall and winter, Bridgeman technicians performing new installs or routine maintenance services for customers will accept donations of new or gently used coats and jackets, as well as non-perishable food items and/or new, unused toiletries for family hampers.

Save money on service, just by helping out

Bridgeman customers who donate in these ways receive a 10-per-cent discount off the service portion of their bill. It’s the company’s way of saying “thank you” to the community that supports them, says general manager Laurel Simon.

Having operated in Greater Victoria for 36 years, Bridgeman Plumbing and Heating is part of the greater community and as such, feels strongly about supporting the Burnside Gorge Community Association and its work with families, Simon says. “It’s important to give back, especially at this time of year.”

Even if you’re not having a service done, you can drop off donations at the Bridgeman office in Saanich at 1545 Broadmead Ave. between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday.

Energy rebates can save you more $

The staff at Bridgeman Plumbing and Heating are experts at helping you find the best eco-friendly heating or cooling system for your home or commercial property. They can also help you sort out the variety of rebates available for upgrading to more energy-efficient equipment such as those using natural gas – just ask!

Thinking of going tankless?

If you’re looking to reduce your energy bills, switching to an on-demand hot water system is a great option, Simon says. By only heating water as needed, their running costs can be significantly lower, she adds. “Tankless water heaters also take up less space in the house and they pay for themselves in the long run.”

If you’re among the many property owners who have already made the switch, Simon offers a bit of timely advice: “Have your tankless heater serviced annually to ensure best performance!”

Regular maintenance is always a good idea

No matter what type of equipment you’re using to heat your home or building, having it maintained on a regular basis is the best way to keep it operating to its peak efficiency. Bridgeman technicians are working hard to get customers ready for winter, from installing ductless heat pumps and doing natural gas conversions to servicing existing equipment.

Simon recommends calling 250-727-1228 now to book your service before the cold sets in. You can also send an email to info@bridgemanplumbing.ca, or drop by their office. You can also follow what’s new on their Facebook page.
