About Us

Appleby Systems Georgetown was founded by local resident Paul Petersen. 

With Paul at the helm, Appleby built a reputation over more than 20 years for quality products; outstanding customer service; factory-backed warranties; and licensed, professional, and knowledgeable hometown staff. The company won multiple awards, such as “Halton Hills Small Business of the Year” and “Reader’s Choice.”

Family and community have always been the cornerstones of our business at Appleby. We believe in supporting our community and local businesses, giving back whenever possible.

When you deal with Appleby, you can expect:

  • The Service you get from a friend
  • The Reliability you get from a neighbour
  • The Trust you have in an expert
  • And the Value you get from people who will see you around town

Upon Paul’s retirement in 2020, he handed over the reins to Brendon Aldridge and the “friendly experts” from Dr. HVAC, who have been serving Brampton, Mississauga, Caledon, and the Greater Toronto area for over a decade. The team is now looking forward to providing the same great quality of service to Georgetown homeowners.

"Our goal is to give you the friendliest service you’ve ever seen." - Brendon Aldridge

The Friendly Experts

Our technicians are licensed and experienced and all our staff are knowledgeable and friendly. You can depend on us to respond quickly to your needs, make expert recommendations, and provide you with full information before proceeding with any work.

Our mission is to offer high quality HVAC solutions that provide our customers with peace of mind. We take the risk out of products and services essential to their lives and businesses. We make heating and cooling easy.

Easy, Flexible Payment Options

If you need a new furnace or air conditioner when you’re already stretched, you may need some help spreading out the cost.

Appleby can help you afford your new heating or cooling system. We’ve partnered with SNAP Financing and Smart Home to provide you with competitive, cost-effective financing plans for all your HVAC needs.

We offer a variety of flexible furnace and air conditioning payment plans with options for everyone:

  • Low monthly payments: take 10 or even 12 years if needed. Interest rates are much lower than what credit cards offer.
  • No interest options if you’re paying off in 2 – 3 years.
  • Options for now money down.
  • Pay off at any time.
  • SNAP allows you to make payments on your credit card to earn points.
  • Finance even large projects like custom HVAC system design.

We also accept all major forms of payment, including Visa and MasterCard.

Green Philosophy

Our team takes action to protect our environment.

  • Whenever we replace an air conditioner, we don’t just toss the old one. We ensure the refrigerant gets properly reclaimed so it doesn’t escape and harm our ozone layer and we send all recyclable metal parts for recycling.
  • In our office, we’ve upgraded to a high efficiency tankless water heater, replaced our lights with energy-saving, LEDs, and installed smart thermostats to save electricity.
  • Every year we participate in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, usually at the Mississauga shorefront.

We’re always on the lookout for new ways to green our business.

Meet Our Team

Bruna, Home Comfort Advisor

Bruna is our Home Comfort Expert. She’s the friendly face who comes to your home to take measurements, photographs, and give you a professional presentation of your options. “I do everything to take care of your home needs,” she explains.

Bruna has a background in customer service and sales, and spends a lot of time training as part of the Dr. HVAC team. She goes on ride-alongs with our technicians and takes training sessions whenever she can.

At other companies, Bruna was always resolving customer complaints. What she likes about Dr. HVAC is that she’s always getting compliments on the services we provide. “I like the positive feedback; I’ve built a lot of positive relationships with clients,” she says.

It’s not just the clients that make Bruna happy to be here. “Dr. HVAC has helped me fulfill my potential. I never thought I could do what I’m doing now, and I know I want to keep doing this far into the future.”
When asked whether she had any customer stories, Bruna had trouble picking just one. “There are so many situations where clients are grateful; one man was so happy he was getting his furnace the next day he invited me to stay for dinner!”

“I love that I can build these relationships, and build trust and faith in Dr. HVAC,” she says.

When not helping clients, Bruna stays busy with running, yoga, reading, and her favourite home and garden television shows.

Bryan, Service Technician

Bryan has been working in the heating and cooling industry since graduating from Humber College’s Gas Fitting program in 2013.

“I actually started out in customer service for an HVAC manufacturer. I liked it so much I started night school.”

For Bryan, getting people what they need is the best part of the job. “Whether it’s heat or air conditioning, it feels good to help. I remember during a bad heat wave, a woman with a newborn needed her AC repaired. Other companies were telling her it would be days before they could see her. I came on a Saturday and was luckily able to fix the problem quickly. She was so grateful she gave me apples for the road as a thank you.”

Bryan also loves being able to educate homeowners about what he does. “I’m a nerd for my work. I enjoy teaching people about it, and encourage homeowners to stay with me and ask questions about the large appliances in their homes.”

In his free time, you’ll find Bryan bowling, playing board games, watching movies, or working out.

Tracy Customer Service Representative

Tracy, Customer Service Representative

When you call in and Tracy answers, you know you’re in good hands. “I’ve gotten so many calls from families with no heat or AC – and what makes it even harder is that a lot of times the homeowners are older or there are young kids. It’s just so miserable being uncomfortable, and I understand how critical a furnace or air conditioner can be. I do everything I can to have a technician out to you as quickly as possible.”

Tracy has spent the past 18 years working in customer service and coordinating with HVAC dealers and companies.

“I went to Humber College, and started working for an HVAC dealer in 2000. I’ve been working in this industry and helping homeowners ever since.”

Tracy loves working with our customers, but she also loves her Dr. HVAC family. “Everyone here is welcoming and we take care of each other. Most importantly, we help each other take care of the people who call us needing help.”

In her free time, you can often find Tracy out getting some fresh air. “I live near a lake, so I’m always walking, taking in the view. I also love visiting local boutiques and restaurants. When I do spend some time inside at home, I love reading and cooking.”
