About Nate Burlando, Our Owner


Nate began his career as an apprentice in heating and air conditioning in 1994. He worked his way up through several different positions excelling at his job. During this, he also was trained as a Red Seal Journeyman. Along the way, he learned many things including what makes a service and installation company excellent and reputable. He has a passion for customer service: he wants all his customers to have the most reliable, efficient and safe equipment in the industry at a reasonable cost.

With encouragement from friends and family, he started DISTINCT HEATING & COOLING LTD in 2007. His foundation was to build a company based upon old fashioned values – to put in an honest day’s work and receive an honest day’s pay. That has transferred into everything that DISTINCT stands for and also, into the standards of all employees of the company.

Nate is constantly looking for ways to improve things for both his customers and his employees. Whether that is updated technology or home improvements or education for himself and his staff, he is committed to having the best solutions and updated information so they know what options are available. DISTINCT can then help them make the best decision for their situation.

Nate enjoys reading, physical fitness, lazy lake days with his family (any day with his family is a good day!), volunteering at his church and hanging out with friends and neighbors.
