Time for a Pre-season Heating Tune-up!

Voted San Diego’s Best Heating & Air Company in 2016, Bill Howe knows the importance of quality products and regular maintenance on your HVAC systems. And, the most important thing you can do to care for your system is scheduling regular maintenance.

By having your system routinely tuned up and inspected, you can save money on costly repairs and have peace of mind that when it cools down, your heating in San Diego will be working at its optimal level. Just like your vehicle, fine tuning your heating system will help to find issues causing the system to run inefficiently, or repairs needed. If you are current on maintenance, it will also lessen the need for repairs over time versus systems that are not inspected.

What will a Bill Howe Heating tech in San Diego perform during your routine maintenance?

The first item on a tune up/inspection checklist is a safety inspection. A professional HVAC expert will ensure that your furnace is not emitting unsafe carbon monoxide levels. They will also recommend installing C02 detector if you do not already have one.

They will then perform temperature checks that will tell them if the system is heating efficiently before and after the heat exchanger.

Airflow is one of the most important aspects to consider when talking about your heating system. If airflow is blocked, it causes the system to work harder. If left unchecked, it could cause your system to stop working over time. Our Bill Howe Heating experts will clean your filter, or replace it for free during every tune up service.

The technician will then perform several checks including:

  • Electrical draw
  • Operating pressure
  • Fan motor functioning
  • Venting

The technician will also put your system through a fully operational and safety cycle. They will make sure your burners are clean and working properly, and safely, and help walk you through any questions about how your system operates.

We’re lucky that we don’t need heating in San Diego for a long time during the winter months, but there are a few months each year when heat is a blessing. By scheduling an inspection and tune up before it cools down, you don’t have to wonder if the furnace will work when you need it. You can also be sure that a month before the heating season begins, you will have a great chance of getting a specialist to your door same day. During peak seasons, many HVAC companies book up quickly, and often scheduling can be delayed by days if not weeks.

Routine maintenance will save you time, money and allow you to relax and know that when you need it most, you will have comfort for you and your family.  It is also important to maintain your full system warranties.

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.
