A New Service and a New Idea

Ordinary people who use computers in their homes and businesses sometimes need a consultant too, just like big corporations, but at a price that’s reasonable for everybody.

 Experienced and Personal

We’re a family team with a combination of experience and common sense, and we have been helping people in Ottawa and area with their home and business computers for the past 20 years.

 In Home Service – Backed up by a Full Workshop

Problems can usually be diagnosed much faster on site. You don’t have to disconnect your equipment and lug it to a shop, so you’re back in action faster.  Bigger jobs can be more efficient in our fully-equipped workshop.

Compu-Home Can Help You Choose and Use Your Technology

Call Malcolm, Cory or Dan, to discuss how we can help you.

Mention that you are a member of the
 Findlay Creek Community Association, and receive a 10% discount on all of our services.
