The Air That You Breathe: Why Ventilation Matters

Proper ventilation is important, but something that we may take for granted in our own homes, especially in one of the finest climates in the America. Even if you have air conditioning in San Diego, chances are that it is used only during certain months. But, how often do you think about the air circulating through your home and how fresh it is?

Ventilation and ductwork that flows through your home is an intricate system allowing you to stay cool in summer, and warm in the wintertime. But, it also circulates the air (and anything that might be present, including anything present in the air). Having a professional in San Diego air conditioning, or heating, change the filters during your annual maintenance will also help to keep the air circulating in your home clean and pure.

In the ventilation system there is also a drip pan that catches the excess water/condensation, where bacteria sometimes can grow. In severe cases, it can contaminate indoor environments and cause a variety of issues including odors, and sometimes exasperate conditions like asthma. A simple and easy solution that will help keep bacteria from growing is cleaning the condensate line. Any specialist in San Diego air conditioning can perform this service and check your system.

Another way to ensure that what is circulating through your air conditioning in San Diego is as clean as possible, is to regularity maintain your system with annual pre-season tune-ups and regularly cleaning your air ducts. Not only would seasonal maintenance and air duct cleaning help the airflow, but also extends the life of your unit and keeps it running when you need it most.

We always recommend seasonal tune-ups and during each visit will check your airflow. For more information on the services performed during our A/C and heating tune-up, visit

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.

I have been using Bill Howe since the late 1980’s, their service has always been excellent, plumbing, heating and restoration. I am most impressed by the integrity of their employees, not only do they know their work/skill, they do not waste time, they are so efficient, they are so helpful and they are a true “service”!

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.
