How To Save Energy At Home

Conserving energy is becoming an important part of the lifestyle in America. Whether the Energy Efficient AC Unitreason is environmental consciousness or financial conservation, the truth is that everybody benefits from using the energy in their home wisely. However, many people are still not sure what they can do to conserve energy. At Bill Howe, we have a couple recommendations which will save energy while being easy on your wallet:

Keep Your HVAC System Well Maintained

Your San Diego HVAC system is one of the appliances in your home which is almost always using at least some energy. Between monitoring your home’s temperature via the thermostat and turning on to maintain a comfortable temperature, this system is almost always using energy.

Though there are energy efficient models on the market, the truth is that you can save a great deal of energy by simply making sure that whatever system is in your home is running at peak performance. Preventative maintenance of your San Diego HVAC system will maximize the efficiency of any system and is a good first step for conserving your San Diego HVAC system’s energy footprint.

Adjust Your Thermostat

Even the best maintained HVAC San Diego system is going to waste a lot of energy if the thermostat is set incorrectly. A good way to save some energy in this case is to adjust your thermostat according to the outside temperature. We recommend about 68 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter and about 72 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer. The best way to ensure proper use of the thermostat is to install an auto-programmable thermostat. There are many options to choose from including thermostats that you can program from your phone or computer, or even systems that learn your behavior and adjust automatically based on the system’s memory.

At Bill Howe, we care about the health of your home’s HVAC system and want to make sure that it runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Plus, if you are in need of a new system, we offer free estimates on new installations. To schedule an appointment with a specialist in HVAC, 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.
