John Desrochers - Operations Manager

Our experience working with Prairie HVAC/R for the refurbishment of our ice plant was a very pleasant experience.  With projects like these, the importance of budget and schedule are critical.  Both items we feel were maintained and met as per our initial conversations.  The Prairie HVAC/R crews were professional in their area of expertise, and we are left with a system that is not only working as it should, but the details of the install have been appreciated.  I personally can appreciate and certainly notice an install that is clean, and all components connected as if there was some thought and planning put into it.


Dakota Community Centre

Dave Dulko - Facility/Buildings Management Specialist

Dakota Community Centre is a year-round two rink facility built over 26 years ago. Our ice plant was in desperate need of an upgrade that needed to be completed in as short a time frame as possible. The retrofit included a new chiller, high efficiency pumps and all related piping and controls. Prairie HVAC/R was the successful bidder on this project even though the original installation was by another competitor. Although our Community Centre had no past relationship with Prairie, it was decided that following a careful assessment of all bids Prairie would be awarded the work. I can confirm that the decision to work with Prairie was one of the best decisions we made on this project. The quality of the work was very good and their commitment to completing the project on time was exceptional. Prairie’s team worked tirelessly to achieve all project timeline goals and the new ice plant was turned on the exact day that it was promised to us. I would not hesitate in recommending Prairie HVAC/R for your next ice plant project. Thanks to Albert and his team of professionals for their attention brought to our Community Centre.

Jim Malcolm - Mechanical/Utility Maintenance Supervisor

I commend your team on not only making good headway in a timely manner but the worksite is being kept extremely tidy.  I really appreciate that!  In addition, finding a manner in which to cut out the pipe and avoiding smoke and debris from getting into the air handling system was a huge benefit.  Great work guys, not that I expected anything less.



Robert Jonasson- Senior IBX Critical Facility Technician IV, IBX Operations

We had an issue with our CRAH units failing and Prairie HVAC/R proposed a solution that got us back up and running very quickly.  Prairie HVAC/R is our contractor of choice for this equipment and provides quality service with an honest approach.  Response times are excellent and we can often get same day service.  Prairie HVAC/R takes some of the stress and worry out of running a complex facility as I know I always have their support.


RINK Training Centre

Steve Burns - Director of Operations

We have used Prairie HVAC/R as our ice plant service provider for over ten years, including a move in to our new custom-built facility.  Not only were they happy to work with us as a new business with a unique building and the challenges it provided, but they have grown with us to help us in the organization and maintenance of a much larger facility and system.  Prairie HVAC/R has always provided valuable feedback to us and our staff, as well as gone above and beyond to help us in times of emergency to work around the clock.  Albert and his family have been a part of our business since we opened and their care for their clients shine through in the quality of their work.


GWL Realty Advisors Inc.

Marco Sousa - Senior Building Operator

We have been operating two SMARDT chillers that Prairie HVAC/R engineered and installed.  They have been a dream and their cutting edge oil less technology makes them exceptionally low maintenance.  Any time there has been a minor issue Prairie HVAC/R's service has been prompt and efficient.  Their technicians always help to educate and are never condescending.  I would recommend them for chiller solutions in any commercial setting and am confident they will not disappoint.

Mark Morrison - Chief Engineer

I just would like to pass on a note about last night's gas line install.  It was fantastic!  Working with your crew was an absolute pleasure.  They were all professional, calm, and fun to work with.  I learnt a lot last night.  Everything was just so well planned out and organized and it all ran very smoothly thanks to you.



Vitaliy Churilov - Maintenance Manager Western Region

Prairie HVAC/R has been a reliable and solid partner for Congebec Winnipeg over the past 3 years.  They have very skilled technicians that have worked closely with us to build a lasting relationship.  On several occasions I was pleased to see their technicians educate and explain to our operators better ways to run the plant, improve preventive maintenance practices or just deepen overall understanding of the system.  The owner takes pride in making sure that he and his team deliver on their commitments, and on several occasions I seen him step in to cover for a job that the assigned individual could not do due reasons beyond their control.  This gives me a high level of comfort knowing the owner and his team are always ready to support us in a time of need.


Pilot Mound Arena

Dave Glenn - Pilot Mound Arena Facility Manager

Just a note to thank you for the great job installing the refrigeration system in the new arena in Pilot Mound. Your firm was able to respond to the many changes in design and stay on price. Everyone was impressed with the quality of the job and your staff's ability to work closely with the engineer and other contractors on the job. A big bonus for us was the web based building management system that you recommended and designed. You were able to integrate our heating and ice making equipment controls into one easy to operate system that will expand with our needs in the future. Now that we moved into our operational phase we are beginning to see the benefits of improved diagnostic ability to better understand any problems or adjustments we need to make. I look forward to working with Prairie HVAC/R in the future and would recommend any one with refrigeration or control systems requirements to use your expertise in their projects.

Prairie HVAC/R provided a customized cost effective solution to relocating our ammonia plant to meet Class T specifications.  The remote monitoring DDC controls system they installed created efficiency and peace of mind.  Their attention to detail and ability to work cohesively with sub-contractors made the entire process very amicable.  The entire Prairie HVAC/R team are always professional, friendly and available to us 24/7.  I would highly recommend using Prairie HVAC/R, and would be happy to share my experience and offer a tour of our mechanical room to anyone with similar needs.

Prairie HVAC/R helped us solve the issue of wanting year round curling ice but not having enough capacity.  Their cost effective solution for boosting our Geothermal loop facilitated creating a one of a kind in the world curling experience.  The owner was hands on throughout the process, presenting to various groups and the media.  The value added to our facility is exponential and we could not be happier with the result.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Prairie HVAC/R for the work that you recently completed at the Fraserwood Hall.  As you know, we had a system in our facility that had been causing us grief for a number of years.  I must tell you that we value how approachable each of you have been.  Appreciative that you each have gone out of your way to help us with our mechanical system, so that it suits our needs and functions as it is intended.  This speaks volumes to each of you as individuals and what the company represents.  We look forward to a long relationship with each of you.  Thanks again for your services and sincerity in assisting the Fraserwood Hall.


Bell MTS Data Centres

Robert Jonasson - Facilities Manager

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.


Southdale Arena

Ed Constant - Facility Manager

Prairie HVAC/R are the experts we count on to maintain and service the ice plant compressors for our two indoor hockey rinks.  We have never lost a day of ice in the entire time Prairie HVAC/R has been handling us.  We have used Prairie HVAC/R from day one, and have built a trust in them.  Their prompt service, exceptional customer service, and knowledgeable technicians would lead me to recommend them to anyone who expects the best.  We have always felt like a priority and that we were their only customer.  They always provide the most cost effective solution, and their proximity to us is an added bonus.  Our equipment runs smoothly and I can sleep nights knowing, that IF a problem ever arises someone is on call 24 hours a day - 7 days a week to remedy the situation.
