Why Us


Here’s why you should trust us with your family’s comfort

We are a family owned and operated business. Steve and Lynn own and both work in the business. Our son, Mackenzie, is the foreman of the sheet metal department and our daughter Emily will assist you at reception.

We stand strongly behind the products we sell and believe in their workmanship and warranties. The majority of our products contain 10 years labour and parts. Call to ask more details about the products.

Our staff are chosen carefully in order to ensure that our family values and workmanship carries on into our customers houses. Our expertise will make any changes to the HVAC systems in your home a seamless and painless process, as we will take care of everything from start to finish.


Houde Mechanical has been servicing Cornwall and SD&G for over 65 years. We purchased the company in 2004 and have been operating this family business since.
Steve and Mackenzie are both red seal sheet metal Journeymen and continue to actively work one-on-one with our customers to ensure you get the best services possible.

We are a family run company and like to treat our employees and clients as family, with great old fashioned service. We are committed to growing and to continue to offer the citizens of Cornwall with the best possible service and access to quality work and equipment.

We have several apprentices, gas technicians and refrigeration technicians employed to offer great service. We have won several HEIL dealer of the year awards, Continental fireplaces awards, Navien bronze status.


We have recently moved to offer our employees and clients with a better show room and sheet metal fabrication shop. We are continuously growing and looking to improve our business in order to offer our customers the best service. We have a newly expanded showroom with gas and propane fireplaces and now offer electric fireplaces as well.
We are looking to increase our staff in the sheet metal department and gas department in the near future.

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.

Steve R. | Residential Project

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.
