Changes in Energy Star

Energy Star is a program that promotes energy efficiency. The Energy Star is awarded to specific products to let consumers know that they can help save energy. The goal of the project is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and pollution that results from the inefficient use of resources and energy. The Energy Star symbol on packaging makes it easier for consumers to identify and buy money saving, energy efficient appliances.

Effective early 2012, there have been several changes that have been implemented in the Energy Star Program. Once such change lies within Version 3 of its New Homes program: all new HVAC systems installed as of January 1st must be installed according to the Quality Installation (QI) guidelines established in ANSI/ACCA Standard 5 QI, in order to earn the Energy Star label.  While Version 2 of the New Homes program focused on the efficiency of the equipment and ducts, Version 3 includes installation requirements and inspections to better coordinate between the builder, home energy rater and HVAC contractor. Other changes announced to go into effect as of July 2012 include revisions to product requirements for Energy Star qualified furnaces and geothermal heat pumps.

Energy Star provides certain guidelines to keep home and business properties energy efficient when using their HVAC. San Diego companies that offer cooling and heating repair see to it that they check systems for any air leaks and damage that can cause units to use more energy than usual. At Bill Howe, we have many highly skilled technicians who follow Energy Star regulations related to HVAC. San Diego equipment installation should always be done right to ensure that energy is not wasted.

The team at Bill Howe Heating & Air is always up to date with the latest news and changes in guidelines from Energy Star in San Diego. HVAC equipment offered to home and commercial property owners is often Energy Star rated to ensure efficiency. Bill Howe is among the best San Diego HVAC companies and our team can work with you to find the most cost efficient and energy efficient HVAC unit for your home or business.

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.

You have an incredible team! My suite has had major issues constant backups. In the last few months we had a horrible flood that caused us thousands of dollars in repairs. Your team was so attentive and took care of all the repairs. Just yesterday another back up called them immediately and like quick responders they were there to take of it! A huge thank you from my La Costa providers and staff! We appreciate your hard and dedicated work!
