Who We Are
DeCoste Electrical & Ventilation Ltd. is a local family owned and operated business dedicated to delivering safe, reliable services to both commercial and residential customers in Antigonish, Guysborough and neighboring communities.
Our founder, Kevin DeCoste, started the business in 1986. Using his entrepreneurial spirit and an enthusiasm for the trade, Kevin worked independently in the Antigonish and Guysborough area doing residential electrical and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) work with a guiding principle of providing quality workmanship at a fair price.
Since then, the business has grown in size and scope. We now employ 16 full time employees. Today DeCoste Electrical & Ventilation is a full-service organization providing electrical and HVAC installation, maintenance and repair services to both commercial and residential clients as well as general electrical contracting services. We have expanded our coverage area to serve customers across Eastern Nova Scotia.
With a 34 year history of serving customers in our local and neighboring communities, our company has worked hard to build lasting relationships with our partners and clients. Committed to operational excellence, our people share a set of core values: honesty, accountability, safety, teamwork, and respect. These values represent how we operate our business, lead our team, and serve our customers. In 2014, our company’s strong business practices, corporate responsibility and community contributions providing outstanding service were recognized by our community through receiving the Excellence in Business Award from the Antigonish Chamber of Commerce. Our company was also recognized by the Chronicle Herald in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 with the Reader’s Choice Award for Best Electrician.
Although the business has grown, our operations are still guided by the same principles that got us here; quality workmanship at a fair price.
