About Us

HVAC Solutions is a full-service heating and air-conditioning company providing quality workmanship and products to the mid-Vancouver Island area.
Owner, Garth Wood, brings a versatile trades background to his work in residential HVAC.  His multi-disciplinary certification ensures that each job, big or small, is performed with expertise to exacting trade standards.
A natural mechanical aptitude spurred him to pursue Journeyman certification in plumbing, steam-fitting, gas fitting and electrical (Restricted B), which he earned early in his working career in the late 1990s.  Wanting to further expand his trade knowledge he embarked on a refrigeration apprenticeship, attaining Journeyman status in 2006.  He has specialized in residential and commercial HVAC system design, installation, maintenance, and repair for over 25 years.
Garth continues to upgrade his knowledge and stay up-to-date with industry changes by attending professional development seminars and courses.  A partial list of these includes:  Oxyacetylene and stick welding; Fall protection; WHMIS; and technical training on Viessman boilers, York furnaces, and Fujitsu ductless split heat pump systems.  In 2013, to stay current with code changes, he upgraded his electrical ticket, adding a Refrigeration endorsement.
Over the years, he has built and renovated several homes, thus gaining a working knowledge of building codes and procedures.  He knows the importance of scheduling, layout and design when doing installation for home renovations or secondary suite construction.  His mechanical design ethic emphasizes neatness and unobtrusive, space saving installation which maximizes usable floor area and storage space for the homeowner, yet ensures a quiet, efficient HVAC system.
Garth’s certification and experience in several trades gives him a broad perspective when seeking the best solution and approach to each job he undertakes.  Please call for a free consultation to see how this advantage can work for you.
