Boiler Systems


Warmth and comfort are crucial in our Canadian winters

The boiler is the most important part of the central heating system in your Cornwall home. it is responsible for heating water, as well as warming your home, which is exactly what you need in the colder months of the year. You definitely can’t live without it in Cornwall!

It is easy to take the boiler that is in your home for granted. This means that when it breaks down or is having problems, you really notice. You may even be without hot water and heat in your home. Of course, this is the last thing that anyone wants, especially when it is winter.

It doesn’t matter whether you have an electric or gas boiler, it is always best to have a professional take a look at it if it is malfunctioning or won’t work at all. A lot of people think that they can fix the problem themselves with the manual, but this is never recommended. Boilers are more technical than they appear and if you start to play around with things when you are having problems, you could cause more damage than there was in the first place. In addition, it can be dangerous for your family when you try to fix your boiler when you don’t know what you are doing. This is especially true if you have a gas boiler. Carbon monoxide poisoning is dangerous and since you cannot see it, it becomes poisonous and you don’t know that it is there. Calling a professional to have a look at your boiler in Cornwall will keep your family safe, as well as solve the problem quickly and without any trouble.


If you think you are having a boiler breakdown in your home, there are some common signs to look out for that indicate that it is time to call in a professional. The obvious sign that something is wrong is that you are not receiving any hot water or heat from your boiler system. There could be may reasons why this is happening, such as a valve failure or an issue with the thermostat. But, one thing is for sure; you are going to need a professional to get your boiler up and running again safely.

Another sign of a boiler problem is strange and loud noises. This can be a whistling or banging sound coming from your boiler that was not there before. Not only will this be annoying, but it will also mean that your boiler is probably not running as efficiently as it should be. The last thing you want is to be paying more money in bills than the benefit you are getting out of your boiler system, right?

If you have a gas boiler and think that you may have a gas leak in your home, do not hesitate to call a professional. Gas leaks can be dangerous for your family and carbon monoxide poisoning can even be fatal if it is not dealt with and fast. Nobody wants accidents to happen so it is important to call out a skilled gas technical as soon as possible. There may be a musty odour that indicated a gas leak and you could even feel lightheaded. Even if you are unsure whether what the problem is, a professional will be able to offer you peace of mind or investigate the issue. It is always better to be safe than sorry!

Steve was great to deal with. He came to my house and sat down with me to show me options on exactly what I needed, not just what they wanted to sell me like others. Despite the millions questions I had, he answered every one of them kindly without hesitation.

Houde Mechanical Heating and Cooling Ltd. were able to set up my pool heater when no other company was willing to take on the job and fit me into their busy summer schedule. I would not hesitate to recommend this company for your heating and cooling needs.

Thank you Houde Mechanical for your prompt and professional service. Because of you, we are enjoying a fantastic fall in our newly “heated” in ground pool.

Lianne Chaput | Residential Project

Punctual, clean and efficient job. Did not go above quoted price. They also looked after filling out energy rebate application.

Mr. Leger | Residential Project

Hot water tank, furnace and A/C installed.

Excellent service they service all my equipment once a year. No problems setting up an appointment always on time.

Patrick King | Residential Project

I have hired Houde Mechanical more than once and I keep going back to them. They do what they say they will, when they say the will and within the budget set. Steve and his crews have always been there to help and have no hesitation in recommending different options regardless of what I have asked. They have put in my furnace, A/C, two natural gas fireplaces, reworked the ducting to help save us time and effort. I like the service and always feel like a valued customer. That means a lot in today’s market. I have no problem recommending Houde Mechanical and in fact, have done so. Keep up the great work!

Monique Stevens | Residential Project

It first began at the home show in Cornwall. Steve was very knowledgeable in his presentation of the work to be performed at my house. Estimates were performed and starting date was zeroed in. The schedule of work was firmed up as an ancient boiler had to be removed. Minimum of disruption was respected and clean up was prompt.
Installation of the new system was performed by very knowledgeable technicians in a continuous process with attention given to cleanliness and efficiency.
Bravo to the Houde Team.

Paula Joncas | Residential Project

Our experience with the Owners Steve & Lynn and technicians (Joey) has been most satisfactory professionally. Although sub contractors of the General Contractor, Houde has been outstanding in its quality of work and ethic. They are knowledgeable, experienced and most of all polite and caring. So much so that we have engaged Houde’s services for annual maintenance of HVAC equipment in newly completed duplex & triplexes… a total of 8 units from basic furnace / AC to radiant heating, HRV & everything in between.

Mrs. Rashid | Portal Custom Homes Ltd.

I have had three separate installations by Houde Mechanical, all with exceptional installation and service. In 2006 a wall AC was installed, serviced several times and is working well; in 2016 a gas furnace was installed then two years later an AC unit was added requiring some retrofit. The installations were clean and neat (looks good), the installers were efficient and courteous.

I would not hesitate to recommend Houde Mechanical.
