You may frequently hear the term “HVAC”, which is used to describe home heating and cooling systems. The acronym stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air conditioning – which are the 3 primary functions of a HVAC system. They control the air temperature, humidity, and maintain the quality of the air.

The mainstay of our business is the design, installation, and commissioning of new heating, cooling and ventilation systems in both renovations and new homes and businesses. Dolan’s can help you find the right comfort system for your property – creating cool and comfortable indoor environments for the hotter months and warm cozy spaces for the colder ones.

All systems are installed with energy efficiency in mind, so that you will get the service you need for as low a cost per month as possible.

Furnaces/Air Handlers

We understand that a working furnace is something you simply cannot function without, so we do our best to have yours installed, repaired or replaced quickly. When your furnace stops working you can trust Dolan’s to restore warmth to your home or business. Most heating systems are classified as forced air systems, because they send air through ductwork for distribution.

Ductless Heating

As the name implies, a duct-free split system does not rely on air ducts to route treated air through your space. Instead these comfort systems can supply heating, cooling or both to areas where adding ducts is impractical. The “split-system” is that the condensing unit sits outside your home while the indoor unit(s) are inside on the wall, to control and direct the airflow.

Heat Pumps

With Vancouver Island’s chilly winters and warm summers, heat pumps are a great, high-efficiency way to heat and cool your home. Unlike a combustion heating unit, like a furnace, heat pumps utilize the same technology found in refrigerators. They are an excellent source of energy-efficient heat for your home, with the added benefit of cooling your home in the summer months.

Air Conditioning

Dolan’s can help you find the right air conditioning solution for your needs. Whether you are looking for a cooling-only solution in air conditioning, or a multi-function option with heat pumps, we work with both homeowners and builders to find a system that will maintain cool and comfortable indoor environments in the warmer months.


As your HVAC system ages, it can lose efficiency or stop working altogether. When you call us for heating system service you can expect accurate, professional maintenance from a trained HVAC contractor you can trust.

Heating systems don’t tend to break down during the summer; they tend to stop working during the heart of winter, just when you need them the most. Don’t risk your comfort by putting off HVAC service and maintenance. We will thoroughly inspect your equipment and let you know of any problems (or potential problems) we find. This way, you can address any issues before the cold sets in.
