Top Air Conditioning FAQs

Why Does My San Diego Air Conditioning Run All Day in Hot Weather?

San Diego County residents, especially those that live in the inland areas such as Santee, La Mesa, El Cajon and Lakeside, know that the summer months can get really hot. Since air conditioning systems are designed for maximum efficiency, many will continuously run in order to keep a home cool. Most systems are set to meet air conditioning needs of about 90 degrees, at which point the system should turn on and off to cool the home. When temperatures go above 90, which they tend to do in many San Diego areas, the system continuously runs. We can help by replacing the coil and outside unit for optimal efficiency.

Does the Indoor Coil Need to be Replaced with a New San Diego Air Conditioning Unit?

In some cases, this is not mandatory. However, in order to obtain the rated efficiency according to Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) ratings, it is best to have a matching set: the indoor evaporator coil and the outdoor air conditioning condensing unit or an indoor fan coil unit if you have a heat pump. By matching the two components, homeowners can ensure maximum efficiency allowing for more effective temperature regulation.

Do I Need to Purchase and Install a Large, Conventional AC Unit?

Not necessarily. At Bill Howe, we offer a package system that takes up very little space. These systems are all-encompassing and can be placed in small areas while still offering heating and cooling. They are compact and make a perfect fit for any San Diego air conditioning needs. These systems can often be installed on roofs or on the ground in convenient locations outside of the home because air conditioning San Diego homes does not require a lot of space. They are highly energy efficient and can offer up to 15 SEER of cooling and heating performance. The higher the SEER performance ratings, the more energy efficient the unit is. And, they are available with gas heating as well as heat pumps.

When it comes to air conditioning, San Diego residents can count on us. We have the knowledge, skill and expertise to help will all of your cooling needs.

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.
