Your home’s furnace is crucial to your families comfort and health

Do you take your warm home for granted? Don’t worry, most families in Cornwall do. It is easy to forget that the systems in your home work hard every day to make sure that your home is relaxing and comfortable for your family. This means that when your furnace breaks down or has a problem, you definitely realize how much you take it for granted. This is particularly true if it happens during the colder months of the year!

If you are into DIY, you may be tempted to try to fix your furnace yourself. But, this is always a bad idea if you don’t know what you are doing. Without the right skills and experience, it is likely that you will make matters worse and even make your furnace a danger to your home. Of course, that is the last thing that you want! That is why when you are having a problem with your furnace in Cornwall the best option is to call a professional without delay. We know it can be a hassle waiting for a professional to come and see what the problem is, but it will be better in the long run. They will have the training and experience to know what is going wrong and why it is happening straight away. But most importantly, they will know how to fix it safely too.


So, what are the signs you should look out for that indicate your furnace needs repaired? Well, there are some common things that happen when your furnace malfunctions that you will be able to recognize immediately. For example, if you are noticing a change in your heating bills and they are suddenly increasing for no reason, this could be because your furnace is working harder than it should and it is not running as efficiently as it normally does. This is a sign of a furnace that is not well maintained over the years. This is the time to call in a professional to take a look and see what is wrong and how it can be fixed. You may also have to consider updating your furnace to a newer model if it is over 15 years old and ready to be replaced.

In addition, you might notice that your furnace is making some strange noises. This is a red flag that something isn’t right. If you hear banging or screeching noises from your furnace in Cornwall, a professional should be called to see what the problem is and how to repair it. Another problem that you should monitor very carefully is the flame in your furnace. Normally, you should have a blue flame from your furnace but if it changes to yellow at any point, this can be a warning that there is carbon monoxide leaking from your system. This is dangerous for your family, as this leaking can be poisonous and fatal. If you can smell at any point, a professional should be called straight away too. You should never delay, as your family can be in danger and this is the last thing that anybody wants.

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.

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

Mr. Leger | Residential Project

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.

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.
