HVAC Certifications

Our technicians within our HVAC division are North American Technician Excellence (NATE) Certified, members of the Institute of Heating and Air Conditioning Industries, Inc. (IHACI), ESCO Institute EPA Certified, and AC&R Safety Coalition Certified.

NATE is the leading non-profit certification program for technicians in the heating,ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration industry and the only test supported by the entire industry.

When looking into a heating and air conditioning company, make sure you ask if the company is NATE-Certified to ensure superior installation and maintenance or service of your heating, ventilation or air conditioning systems. NATE-certified technicians are skilled professionals who have proven their knowledge in the HVAC industry by passing the specialized NATE certification tests.

IHACI is a non-profit trade organization in which members subscribe to the organization’s code of ethics:

  1. To execute our business affairs fairly and equitably guided by principles of honesty and integrity
  2. To adhere to all regulations prescribed by all governmental agencies pertaining to our business
  3. To adhere to the policy of employing experienced and competent personnel based on the principles of honesty and integrity
  4. To increase our efficiency through educational programs and to contribute a portion of our time and thought to the advancement of our industry through out association
  5. To maintain the highest level of service and professionalism

Esco Institute certifies individuals through the EPA (Environment Protection Agency) as part of the EPA Section 608 Certification Program.

Section 608 of the Federal Clean Air Act requires that persons who work with regulated refrigerants be certified through the certification exam.

The AC&R Saftey Coalitions R-410A Safety Training and Certification program provides the necessary training and practical knowledge to safely perform service on systems containing R-410A as well as R-407C and other near azeotrophic blends

The EPA has established the phase out of the refrigerant HCFC R-22 with no production or importing beginning in 2020. However, equipment manufacturers must phase out the use of HCFC R-22 in new units by January 1, 2010.

R-410A designed systems employ thicker walled tubing, and compressors capable of withstanding the higher pressures of R-410A. R-410A systems require different installation and service procedures.

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.

I had a shower that would not drain. The employee arrived on time and fixed the problem quickly and effectively at a very fair price. I was very happy with everything. Thank you and I highly recommend your plumbing service.

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.
