In-Floor Heating


The warmth and comfort of in-floor heating systems is a luxury during those cold Canadian winters

Do you love your in-floor heating? It is one of the newest house trends in Cornwall and for a great reason; you don’t have to have radiators on show in your house and it keeps you lovely and warm underfoot in your home when it is cold outside! But, although it is one of the best things on the market right now, this does not mean that it is immune from potential problems. Because it is underneath your floor, it can be hard to access and to see what the problem is. This should not put you off choosing in-floor heating; you should just recognize when you will need a professional to help you out with repair if something goes wrong.

It is easy to take your in-floor heating for granted in your home. You can come home and it is nice and warm and relaxing for your family. But, when you’re in-floor heating in Cornwall is not working properly, you will definitely notice the difference and realize just how much you rely on it. In fact, you will really miss it when it is not at its best. A lot of homeowners think that they can try to solve the problem themselves. But when it comes to in-floor heating, it doesn’t matter how many YouTube videos you watch or manuals you read, this is not recommended. Since it is underneath your floorboards, it can be complicated to repair, especially if you do not know what the problem is or how to solve it. That is why a professional will be your best friend! Someone that has the skills and experience will be able to fix your in-floor heating in no time and will not cause any more damage to your home.


One of the most obvious signs that something is not right with your in-floor heating will be that it keeps malfunctioning or simply will not heat up at all anymore. This can be inconvenient and it is the last thing you need in the colder months of the year. So, a professional will be able to troubleshoot and find out what is going on. It is always recommended that you choose an experienced professional, as in-floor heating is a complicated system and you can do more harm than good by attempting to fix it yourself.

In addition, a sign that your Cornwall in-floor heating has malfunctioned can be on the floor surface. For example, whatever the problem is may be causing the system to leak and this can be seen on your floorboards. There may be an unpleasant smell too and this can indicate mould in the area, which can be damaging for your family’s health. Again, you really do not want to mess around with your in-floor heating by yourself. Things can go wrong and you can make matters worse. So, save yourself time and money by calling in the professional; that is what they are there for!

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!

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.
