Mother and daughter, father and son: Cedar Coast Heating and Mechanical is a family business with deep roots on Vancouver Island. Brenden Talbot, Summer Fragomeni-Hay, Rick Talbot and Rhi Clark are happy to help with your home heating system.

What’s the biggest drain on homeowner’s pocketbooks?

When it comes to your home, who do you trust to keep you cozy and care-free?

Pop quiz: what are the top three investments you’ll make over your lifetime?

Home, vehicle, then what?

“It’s your heating system,” says Summer Fragomeni-Hay of Cedar Coast Heating and Mechanical, “It will add the most value to your home, and keep your utility bills down.”

So if heating is one of your biggest expenses, wouldn’t you want to get it taken care of by an expert?

“We’re not just another heating company. We’re specialists. This is what we do!”

Mother and daughter in the office, father and son in the field

Fragomeni-Hay and daughter Rhi Clark are at the helm of the office side of this family business, and the father-son team of Rick and Brenden Talbot take care of education and installation in your home.

But the family tree branches farther than that.

While Cedar Coast Heating and Mechanical is celebrating its first year in business, Rick Talbot’s history in heating goes back generations. His grandfather Harry Talbot was one-half of Victoria’s Cook & Talbot in the 1950’s. From the post-war days of oil heating to leading the transition to gas furnaces, the Talbots have seen it all.

“There’s a rich heating history with those boys,” Fragomeni-Hay says.

The combination of father Rick’s experience with son Brenden’s awareness of the latest technologies means customers get the best of both worlds.

Take the mystery out of heating

“Education is a big part of what we do,” Fragomeni-Hay says.

There’s a wide range of technologies and resources available, but Cedar Coast Heating and Mechanical sees their job as helping their customers understand what’s available and narrow down the options.

“There’s no one blanket approach to heating. It’s unique to each homeowner: how they use their house, the number of people living there and many other things. We just want our customers to be armed with the best information to make a good decision.”

The company isn’t locked-in to selling one specific brand either, so they can make suggestions that are right for you. And they won’t pressure you to replace your system if it’s not necessary. They’re happy to perform maintenance and come up with a plan that works for you.

“We’re not trying to be the latest and greatest install company. We’re service-oriented. We’ll help you maintain what you have and if it’s time to make a change we can help with that.”

Whether your goal is reducing your carbon footprint, reducing your utility bills, or just warming your toes through the dark winter months, Cedar Coast Heating and Mechanical is happy to help.
