Our owner, Kris Otto, began working in the HVAC industry in 1999. During his apprenticeship, Kris gained experience in industrial, commercial and residential HVAC, including residential furnace replacements, AC installs and service work. Kris saw a need in the industry for a company focused on quality workmanship and great customer service. This well rounded work experience gave him the knowledge needed to branch off on his own.
Kris & his family in 2019
Kris and his wife Journie incorporated Otto Heating & Cooling Ltd in March of 2007. They hit the ground running the following June. The company was initially working out of the garage and one bedroom in their home. The installations for our clients were done by just Kris for the first year of business out of his 2006 GMC van.

The biggest turning point for Otto Heating & Cooling Ltd was in the fall of 2012. At this time, we were awarded multifamily community contracts from two separate residential builders as well as two large commercial contracts. This influx of work lead to a need for immediate growth bumping our labour force up to 10 men.
Quality service and installs are always in the forefront at our company meetings and this attitude is one of the reasons our company has grown. Referrals are what keep our company running!
