SANTEE, CALIFORNIA- We strive at Carini Heating, Air and Plumbing to provide the latest green technology, installation, and service practices.

Recycling the metals from heating, ventilation, and air conditioning units is one way we do that.

“We haul away any scrap metal leftover from old heating and cooling units after a system installation or scraps from a heating or AC repair and recycle it responsibly,” says Gabriel Carini, who has more than a decade of experience in the industry.

HVAC units contain chemical refrigerants regulated by the federal government under the Clean Air Act. Releasing the chemicals into the atmosphere is illegal and detrimental to our environment. Since entire air conditioners and large air conditioner and furnace components are not items homeowners can easily plunk in the trunk and drop off at the local recycling center, Carini includes the haul-away service at no additional charge.

“We believe in using responsible business practices for all aspects of the company, and being environmentally conscious is a natural extension of that,” he says.

Any refrigerant or other hazardous component is disposed of as directed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Air Act. Once that is done, all of the metal, including copper piping, steel, and aluminum brought in from old systems and scraps that are not used in jobs, are recycled. This recycling is a service that Carini and his team offer as part of their complete heating, air conditioning, and ventilation services in and around San Diego, including East County, Santee, Alpine, and El Cajon.

“This company is based on the philosophy that customers’ needs are of the utmost importance,” explains Carini, who is an expert in air conditioner and heater repair. “This is a need that we noticed, and we’re committed to meeting it for the sake of our customers and the environment.”
