Heat Pumps


A practical and affordable addition to your current system

A lot of homes in Cornwall now have heat pumps installed to meet their heating and cooling needs. It is a more energy efficient way to have your home comfortable when it is hot in the summer and colder in the winter. Plus, it will definitely safe your money on your energy bills! So, when your heat pump is not working properly, you will definitely notice a difference, whether it is with the temperature in your home or your bills start to increase for no reason.

A lot of home owners think that they can repair heat pumps in Cornwall by themselves. But, the truth is, this can be very difficult to do. While we would all love to fix these problems ourselves, it takes an expert that knows what they are doing to get your heat pump back to normal. After all, you don’t want to make matters worse and it can be hard to find what is wrong when you don’t know what you are doing.

The advantages of choosing a professional that deals with heat pumps in Cornwall are endless. You can have your home back to normal quickly, as well as forget the hassle of doing the work yourself. An expert will be able to do the job safely and make sure that your heat pump is properly maintained or any new system is installed without any problems.


We all rely on the heat pumps in our home more than we realize. This means that when it starts to malfunction and there is a problem with it, it can really cause disruption to our everyday living. This means that you should know how to recognize when there is an issue with your heat pump in Cornwall so that it can be fixed as soon as possible.

So, the obvious sign that something is going wrong with your heat pump is if there is less cold air than there should be. There are many reasons why this could be happening in your home. For example, this could be because your system has not been properly maintained and one of the air filters has become clogged or it could even be a problem with the refrigerant. The best way to find out for sure and to have your home back to normal is by calling a professional. They will know straight away what the problem is and how to fix it.

Another sure sign that your heat pump is not working the way it should be is if there are loud noises that you have never heard before when it is running. This might be banging noises or a grinding sound. Either way, it won’t sound good! Again, there is no point in delaying and the quicker you call a professional to find out what it is, the better. That way you can avoid more costly repairs down the line if it completely shuts off or you even have to buy a whole new heat pump. Wear and tear over time is normal but if you actively put off having your heat pump repaired when you should, you are going to be punished later on. So, call in the professional.

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.

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.
