Handyman or Licensed HVAC Contractor?

What’s the difference between a San Diego HVAC Contractor and a Local Handyman?

Not every state requires licensing, certifications, or even formal training for people to perform HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) services. And many local handymen have a wide variety of skills and background to perform areas in HAVC work. However, there is a big difference between a seasoned professional and a handyman.

Training & Certifications

A licensed and trained San Diego HVAC Contractor will not only have the proper education, but in order to become certified and pass courses, they must be also up to date on all local regulations and laws that ensure safety

A local handyman may have some education or general working knowledge, but without certification, you cannot be certain they understand and adhere to all safety aspects of heating & air

Permits & Inspections

All homeowners and business owners who change out a central furnace, air conditioning, ventilation system (and many other large appliances) must have a permit pulled. When a San Diego HVAC contractor installs your system, they are bound by the California State Licensing Board to pull the appropriate permit and have a final inspection completed

Handyman services can pull permits, and the inspection would be completed by a licensed contractor. You could potentially have to hire a licensed contractor anyway, as any repairs that might come up in inspection would require one before the hob would pass and be signed off by the inspector.

Reputation

A licensed San Diego HVAC Contractor is concerned with reputation. Whether is a small company or a large operation with over 36 years of experience, like Bill Howe, licensed contractors understand that our customers will be calling us back for years to come. When you choose the right contractor, their reputation is at stake if they are not following all safety and state procedure

While it might be tempting to hire a local handyman, only a licensed contractor will have the guarantees and training to protect your property, and your family will adherence to all safety standards.

It is always best to do your research and check licenses for anyone working on your home. Not only to ensure training and knowledge to do your job right, but the CLSB will also let you know about insurance and personnel which means you are protracted by that by licensed HVAC specialists in San Diego if anything goes wrong.

Bill Howe has been your licensed HVAC specialist in San Diego since 2007, and Bill Howe has been in business since 19+80. That’s over 36 years of guarantees and education in all plumbing heating & air services.

So when you’re in need of a new furnace, air conditioner, you know who to call 1-800 Bill Howe (245-5469).

What Joel C says about us

Very Satisfied. Michael is always on time, Michael has been doing all of the plumbing related to our remodel. He always does exactly what he commits to do within the estimated cost. He keeps me informed if any wrinkles pop up, and his plumbing skills are excellent as we have had no problems or issues arise after he has left. Very professional! Highly recommend.

What Rick M says about us

We had other companies come out for estimates on what was considered a major job with jackhammers and replacing cast iron pipes under the house… having been stung before, we wanted another estimate just to make sure we were making an informed decision. The prior estimates went up to $21,000!
Bill Howe sent us an amazing veteran plumber, Dashawn and his co- worker Anthony. Dashawn did a thorough check of the problem, explained what he thought was needed … he did a final check and we were able to see for ourselves what was the problem. He recommended a complete cleaning to de-scale the pipes, and not the major work we dreaded. Thanks to his solid analysis and patience in making sure we saw what he saw, the issue was resolved completely, and saved us thousands of unnecessary work. None of the other estimates included the cleaning; only the major repairs. Thanks to Dashawn’s knowledge, professionalism and honesty, we’re Bill Howe customers.

What Carolyn Housman says about us

This was our second excellent experience with Bill Howe. We had a blocked kitchen sink drain 8/5. I was able to get a same day appointment which is AMAZING. Person on phone was very courteous and set me up right away. Tony arrived at the house (called me 30 minutes out so I was able to be ready). He diagnosed the issue (blocked drain, not the garbage compactor) and was able to snake it and ran the water for 10 minutes to be sure the drains were clear. He cleaned up everything and you would not have known he was even there. Thank-you Tony and Bill Howe, you always know how.

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.
