A letter from team whirlwind

We are islanders serving islanders

We are Whirlwind Heating and Refrigeration owned and operated by Richard and Hanna Hull.

Owner and Journeyman Technician Richard Hull started working with Mark Deveraux with Gulf Island Heating and Refrigeration when he was nineteen years old and worked alongside Mark for six years. After working for Mark for six years Richard and Hanna left and moved to Alberta for five years. Richard was able to gain more experience in the trade, along with his journeymen ticket. They both returned home in 2017 and have been working with Mark since.

Mark has decided to slowly move into retirement and found the install side of things to be too stressful, so they started up their own company to take on residential, commercial calls and installs. Together in this office we have decades worth of experience. We are a community oriented company, any sub trades we work with are also locally owned and operated businesses. We do not work with anyone from off island as we support the community both in personal and business life.


We don’t just work on heating and cooling systems; this trade covers such an array of
other trades; these guys are capable of problem solving and fixing many items around homes and businesses. We also like to be a resource for customers who cannot find the right person for the job or are unable to get a phone call back, we will reach out on your behalf.

One thing we appreciate our customers to understand is that we are not just an install
and service company, we also offer 24/7 on call emergency service. If your heat goes down, we come running, if a commercial walk-in cooler goes down, we come running. We often say that you get an install once, but you get service for life and one day you will be the customer that we drop everything we are doing and come running to save.

We are fully licensed and insured and follow the better homes practices for installations and service in BC. We work hard to maintain a positive work environment with a family feel.

Installation once, but service and commitment for life.
