Save Water, Install a Comfort System!

With mandatory water conservation in effect and drought conditions not improving any time soon, people are searching for more ways to save every last drop. And one of the biggest water wastes can be, not appliance or long showers, but all of those minutes spent waiting for water to get hot for showers and at the kitchen sink.

At Bill Howe, we often receive calls inquiring about comfort systems. Gaining in popularity, especially in light of new water-conservation efforts, our plumbers in San Diego highly recommend this solution for many homeowners who find themselves letting cold water run down the drain waiting for a hot shower or for the kitchen tap to reach the perfect temperature.

One great solution we recommend is the installation of a Comfort System. But, what is a comfort system?

Traditionally, cold water sits in pipes and when you turn your shower on, or kitchen faucet hot tap, the cold water runs while the water heater heats the water. Depending on the location of the taps from the water heater, this can take up to several minutes and wastes quite a bit of water.

The comfort system re-circulates that cold water back to the water heater while heating water and delivering it fast to the locations needed.

A recirculation/comfort system operates by heating up the water, but instead of sending cold water fist, it routes the cold water back to the heater and sends you hot water faster eliminating thousands of gallons of water waste each year.

Comfort systems can be installed at the water heater, and then a connection is also made at each location where hot water is needed fast (usually near the kitchen or shower). They work in conjunction with your current water heater, traditional or tankless, and even have remote systems to turn them on when you need it.

Only activated when you need it, the comfort system can be installed to use with a timer system or a button that allows you to manually turn it on when you will be calling for hot water, and by remote so you can turn it on, from anywhere in the house!

Comfort systems deliver instant hot water, eliminate waste and will save you in both water and energy bills. They have a life expectancy of 15-20 years so you know that they will continue to deliver comfort and savings for many years.

Bill Howe’s expert San Diego plumbers are in high demand when it comes to installing comfort systems so don’t wait, call 1-800 Bill Howe (245-5469) for your free estimate today!

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.
