Steinbach Arena

Russ Dyck – Parks & Recreation Department Head

We hired Prairie HVAC/R to repair and maintain our critical cooling units that had failures.  They were timely on the repair of our units, and provide regular inspections and reports on equipment condition.  They have knowledgeable factory trained technicians, and are my one and only service provider.  Prairie HVAC/R is reliable, and I would recommend them to others.  I have never had any concerns with Prairie HVAC/R, and in using them gained a lot more knowledge as to the equipment I operate.
