Two energy businesses in Penticton have announced that in the new year, they will be working together under one umbrella.

Ideal Energy Solutions and RPR Heating and Air Conditioning will be officially merged as RPR Heating and Air Conditioning LTD on Jan, 1, 2022, and expand into the Similkameen.

The companies shared that their clientele of both businesses will continue to experience the same high-quality service, and new areas will begin to benefit from the growth. Customers will have all their scheduled appointments and services will go ahead with the same friendly faces.

“We’ve been wanting to expand outside of the area and the first order of business in this partnership is to open an office in Princeton and serve the wonderful people of the Similkameen.
