Air Conditioning Tips of the Week!

As temperatures continue to soar, Bill Howe Heating & Air wants to advise our San Diego drip pan for air conditioning units in San Diegoair conditioning customers to check the quality of their drip pan (also known as a “safety pan”) on their indoor air handler. The pan keeps the condensation that your air conditioner creates off the floor. However, if the pan is dirty or old, water can leak onto your floor, which creates problems, especially if you have wood underlay flooring. Moisture leaking outside the pan may also contribute to mold growth.

Should you need assistance checking your drip pan, one of our skilled technicians can help. After all, when it comes to air conditioning, San Diego residents trust us. Not only can we check the condition of your drip pan, but we can also inspect the drainpipe that carries off the condensation and verify that it’s draining properly. We know that over time, these pipes can clog from algae growth, dust, insect invasions or plant debris. And, if the water can’t drain properly, it can back up into the safety pan and possibly overflow. Condensation on the air conditioning line in San Diego Our routine air conditioning inspections also involve examining the insulation around the drainpipe. The insulation protects the pipes from condensation that can damage many areas of your home through which the pipes run. The course of the pipe is often concealed, so you could have leaks, condensation or drips you’re unaware of, creating issues that could be avoided with a simple inspection.

At Bill Howe Heating & Air, we highly encourage our customers to inspect the areas outdoors where the drainpipe runs from time to time. Any streaks or discoloring along the exterior or roof of your home near the drainpipe may indicate that you have problems with your air conditioner drainage system. Solving  problems  with your San Diego air conditioning unit is quick and easy at Bill Howe. Our exceptional team of technicians has the knowledge and skill necessary to have your unit running like new in no time.

What David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
