Detox the Air in Your Home with APCO

The APCO (Advanced Photocatalytic Oxidation) system is an air purifier that utilizes both germicidal UV light and activated carbon cells to clean the air in your home. At Bill Howe, we are the San Diego air conditioning experts. Our technicians are highly skilled at installing APCO systems, which are placed directly in the ductwork of your central air system. APCO is a new approach that has significant advantages over the older, ozone-based systems.

If you have been let down in the past with air purifier systems in your home or business, we invite you to learn more about APCO. Many air purifiers installed in San Diego air conditioning systems previously utilized ozone for purification. Ozone, in most cases, is not recommended as a long-term air cleaner and it more frequently used as a temporary solution. The APCO system is a safe approach to reduce odors in the air – whether from chemical or organic sources – including mold, mildew and common germs. The titanium infused activated carbon cells inside APCO attract and hold the Volatile Organic Compounds while the UV light then transform them into harmless water vapor protecting your home and family from airborne biological contaminants such as bacteria, mold spores, viruses  as well as unpleasant odors and VOC’s. The HVAC industry has recently recognized the ultra-violet and carbon cell approach to air quality utilized in APCO products; APCO won the 2011 AHR Innovation Award for Indoor Air Quality.

Our team at Bill Howe Heating & Air recommends APCO systems because they are a safe, effective and cost-efficient approach to better breathing with purer air. Besides their safety and efficiency, APCO systems function with very little maintenance required. They utilize an HV lamp, which keeps the activated carbon cells clean. This means that with an APCO system installed as part of the air conditioning, San Diego residents can save money on the costs of having a professional regularly clean their air-purifying unit.

At Bill Howe, we regularly assist our customers with any and all San Diego air conditioning and air purification issues. After all, there are many benefits to indoor air purifiers. Whether your problem is large or small, we know air conditioning. San Diego residents have trusted our expertise for years, and you can too!

To schedule an appointment or receive an estimate regarding air purification or air conditioning, San Diego residents please contact us at 1-800-BILL-HOWE (1-800-245-5469).

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.
