Getting Your Heating Unit Ready For The Cold Season

Chances are your heating unit has been lying dormant all summer. That’s why you need to make sure your heating system is ready to combat the cold weather before you have a house full of guests over for the holidays. This way, you avoid any unusual odors coming from the unit or the unit malfunctioning all together.

At Bill Howe, we can help you get ready for the lower temperatures if your system isn’t working properly. To make sure that you’re good to go, it’s important to have your system thoroughly checked and tested before you need to start heating your home. After all, your heater is only used for a few months out of the year, so it can collect a lot of dust during the months it is not in use.

As a result, that unpleasant smell people often experience when turning their heater on for the first time in the winter is actually all the accumulated dust burning off. So, don’t panic. That’s not a sign that something’s wrong with the unit, but it does show that it hasn’t been used for a while. Plus, all of that dust could reduce the efficiency, which means you won’t be able to warm the house as well as you should and you might see an increase in your electric bill.

At Bill Howe, we know that getting your unit cleaned, tuned up and changing out the filter is the best recipe for success and can help you save money. So let us help you stay warm this holiday season with a heater that is running at peak performance. At Bill Howe, we have decades if experience prepping your heating unit for the winter.

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.
