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 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.
