The Pope family has been in the heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration business since grandpa Jeff Pope started P&S Refrigeration in Gold River in 1976. In 1978 the family moved to Qualicum Beach and in 1992 started advertising as Pope & Sons Industries. Grandpa Jeff was known as an inventor,  instrumentation mechanic and refrigeration technician, Jeopardy genius and walking encyclopedia. He was widely regarded as one of the best in the field.

On one occasion he was called in by engineers from a Japanese company having issues, and grandpa Jeff analyzed the drawings and found there was an engineering error on the manufacturer’s electrical control schematic which he was able to rectify and provided the fix to the manufacturer. He also was capable with his hands and built a sailboat from scratch. One of his favorite pastimes was reading technical manuals at home in his spare time. His gentle nature and outstanding mind coupled with an honest, hardworking attitude set the stage for the family’s business practices. 

His sons Doug and Dave and grandson Tristan Pope also took up the trade, with Dave running Pope and Sons Refrigeration and winning the Presidents Award from Carrier twice.

Doug & Tristan decided to specialize in heat pumps in 2005 starting ServiceXCEL Heating + Air Conditioning which has won the BBB Torch Award for Best Heating Company on Vancouver Island twice along with numerous others. These awards are based on ethical decision making, trustworthiness and customer service excellence.

Today, many family members work in the business, all bringing that same attitude of caring, old-fashioned service that Grandpa Jeff and Grandma Joan started in the 70s to our ever-expanding line of cutting edge products.

We are sure you will have a wonderful experience with us, in fact, our family stands behind it.
