Winnipeg’s Plumbing and Heating Specialists for over 85 Years

Balcaen and Sons Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning is the plumbing, heating and air conditioning service Winnipeg prefers. Licensed plumbers and technicians are available 24/7, and are dedicated to ensuring the job is done right the first time. Expect courteous, knowledgeable service for jobs big and small, from minor leaks to complete plumbing for new builds.

When Winnipeg’s 1997 “flood of the century” threatened to cause a major sewer line back-up, Balcaen and Sons Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning was there to save 450 homes from disaster. The community spirit shown by Balcaen and Sons Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning staff that day has been an integral part of this business since the beginning.

Three generations ago, Jack and Kay Balcaen started Balcaen and Sons Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning out of a two-storey house off what was then a mud road. Today, what began as a small local business with a single vehicle and 1 intrepid couple has blossomed into a family enterprise, with over 25 vans and an operating staff of 40. Brothers Rob, Ron, George and Tom bought the business from their father Gerry in 2002 and continue to provide the kind of quality service that has met and exceeded customer expectations for decades. Call Balcaen and Sons Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning for all your plumbing, heating and air conditioning needs throughout Manitoba!

"Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness & Value"

We got up this Sunday morning to a cold house. Furnace was not working. Phone Balcaen & Sons to see if they could come out. The gentleman on the 24 hour helpline took my information and told me a service man would call me. Within 5 minutes, the service man did call and I told him about our problem, and he told me that he could probably be over in about an hour or so. His name was Mike B. He came over as he said, diagnosed the problem, and then told us a switch needed to be replaced. He was able to get the switch and was back at our house within a couple of hours and got the furnace going. I could not ask for a nicer and more courteous young service man. Thanks Mike B. for the wonderful service you gave us.

"Superb Service, Worth Every Penny"

Hundred year old home, and Chris and DT came in and sorted out our busted boiler incredibly fast. They were straight shooters and briefed me on all the details during the process. These guys were superb and worth every penny. I'm happy to have guys like this helping out our old neighborhood and old homes with sincerity and expertise.

"Great Service. Loved It!"

I was taking care of a relative's place when their furnace died. Balcaen and Sons called me back after 15 mins and was able to come out within another 15 mins. Jeff (I think) was super nice, looked at everything, and shut off the water etc for me in the house and communicated with them via speaker phone on things. Well done! Great service.

"Excellent Service at Fair Prices"

I've used this company a number of times for a number of issues. That alone is rare praise. I get the feeling that they care, they listen, and they provide "fair" value. Having repeat customers and establishing a good reputation/brand seem to be part of their service. In the world of contracting, that is a rare value.
