Bill Howe HVAC Official Mercury Thermostat Drop-Off Location

Thinking about discarding that old mercury-added thermostat in the trash? That would not only be a shame, it would also be a crime in California, because it’s actually against the law to dispose of mercury thermostats anywhere other than an official collection and recycling site. Bill Howe Heating & Air, the reliable company most area residents turn to for all of their San Diego heating and air needs, wants to make it easy, safe and convenient for you to dispose of any and all mercury-added thermostats from your home, office or business.

Our San Diego HVAC company serves as an official drop-off location to enable the proper disposal of mercury thermostats as required by California law. The forward-thinking legislators in this state passed the Mercury Thermostat Collection Act of 2008 that requires manufacturers to establish some type of collection and recycling program for all out of service mercury-added thermostats. As long as the mercury stays sealed inside its glass tube housing in the thermostat, there is no danger to you or your family members. But if not properly disposed of, mercury can leak out of the device and cause many negative and dangerous repercussions, not only for human residents of Southern California but also for all of the abundant wildlife in our beautiful state.

As a San Diego HVAC company that cares about the people it serves and the environment, our San Diego heating and air business was glad to step up to the plate to serve as an official drop-off location for properly disposing of potentially dangerous mercury thermostats. As a long-time business in this area providing the full range of San Diego heating and air services to both residential and business customers, we understand the harm that the toxic metal mercury can cause to human and animal health as well as the health of environment.

Bill Howe is the company you can count on to go above and beyond what other heating and air services are offering. And we’ll be happy to assist you in California’s effort to prevent toxic mercury contamination by properly disposing of mercury-added thermostat units.

For more information regarding our free mercury thermostat drop off program, please contact us at 1-800-BILL-HOWE (1-800-245-5469).

What Andy B. via Lennox Pro says about us

We have been using Bill Howe Plumbing’s service for more than 25 years and have been pleasantly surprised at how consistently they perform an excellent service call. We use them for our home and our rental properties, and their dispatchers and technicians have always been the best at problem solving; our tenants have told us how great the service is as well. When we needed air conditioning service, naturally we called Bill Howe first. There’s no reason to call anyone else. I know the job will be done right the first time, with fair pricing and professional service.
