A Family Operation Since 1895

Our Services


One of the first services we offered back in the early 1900’s was plumbing and not much has changed as we enter our 5th generation of ownership. Our plumbing team is comprised of Journey Plumbers, Master Plumbers, and apprentices. We’re dedicated to offering quality products, knowledgeable installation, and quick repairs.

Fairbairn Plumbing and Heating cares. Their expertise, service, and communication is excellent and aligns with our values, vision and expectations. We are grateful to have Fairbairn P&H as part of the Wentworth team.

David McBride, President McBride Construction Inc.

I have had the pleasure of working and partnering with Tom Fairbairn and his team at WWF for over 30 years. As a full line remodeling contractor the majority of our projects require plumbing and heating modifications. When you complete 40 to 50 projects a year that need plumbing and heating modifications, you need a firm you can count on. Fairbairn’s is reliable, trustworthy, professional and they stand behind their work. They are indeed a one of a kind and the only Plumbing and Heating firm we use.

We could not be happier with the outstanding response by W.W. Fairbairn’s to our recent water heater rupture! The technician arrived within 15 minutes to control leak and get us water until the water heater could be replaced the next day. Overall we could not have been more pleased by the superb response by the W.W. Fairbairn front office staff and the technician (Tom Loomis) in particular! Highly recommended!

I am so pleased with the work that Fairbairn’s did on my air conditioning system. I had to leave for a short while during my appointment and when I came back, my house was cooling much more efficiently. It’s so nice to have a place so close to take care of people’s needs

I was referred by a friend and the service technician was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and kind. I’ll definitely be using your company again and will be highly recommending you in the future
