Our History

For over 60 years Handy Bros. Home Comfort (formerly known as Handy Bros. ClimateCare) has served the communities of Southwestern Ontario. Originally formed in 1959 by the Handy brothers, the Vanderende brothers expanded the business from a small backyard shop as they continued to provide quality workmanship and exceptional service. In 1994, Handy Bros. joined the ClimateCare Cooperative, a group of HVAC contractors in Ontario. And while our name changed, and Dan retired, we are still known for outstanding service, quality products and affordable prices throughout the Chatham and Kent area.

Most recently, Handy Bros has transitioned to its third set of brothers, Mitch and Nic White. Under their leadership Handy Bros. Home Comfort has continued to grow, and continues to provide the absolute best home comfort experiences that our clients have come to love. We are incredibly fortunate to invite you with us on our journey. Want to experience the best in home comfort care? Call Handy Bros. Home Comfort at to book an appointment today!
