about North Island Heating

we are a Family Business

We treat friends like family, and family like friends.

North Island Heating is a local Comox Valley family-run business, and we never pretend to be anything else. Why would we? Our reputation and integrity stand for themselves.

Our company is owned and operated by Robert Ellis and his sons, Matthew and Mitchell. We’re passionate about what we do, and we’re committed to treating our clients and their homes with the very same respect we’d give our own. As a family, we aim to raise the bar for heating, cooling and ventilation services on the North Island.

We’re proud to count among our team a small, mobile and highly responsive team of dedicated industry experts who live, work and play right here in the Comox Valley. We’re fully licensed, bonded and insured, and we proudly boast decades of combined experience.
