The are many issues to consider when contemplating your television placement. One simple rule says: The center of the screen should be at the eye level of the viewer. Call Ideal today to help you with your flat screen TV mounting and installation! 619-583-7963

A home without a television is like a castle in the clouds — it exists only in fairy tales. And that’s only a slight overstatement. The Nielsen Company reports that 96.7 percent of U.S. homes have television sets. In my experience, over the course of hundreds of home construction projects, I can’t recall a single instance in which one of our clients designed a home without the television’s location in mind. This reality creates design challenges ...

Our HVAC crew just finished this project in La Mesa. They installed a furnace, coil and condenser. To avoid an "eyesore" in the yard, our remodel tech put up this aesthetic condenser screen around the outdoor equipment.

Split-ductless systems are ideal for cooling or heating single rooms that get used, but not all the time. Rather than cranking the thermostat up or down to reach a single room, ductless systems can be used to achieve comfort in those spaces only when they are occupied. If no one is in the room, there is no need to pay to heat or cool that area. CALL IDEAL TODAY TO SCHEDULE YOUR FREE ESTIMATE! 619-583-7963

Every home, condominium, and townhouse has one. It’s impossible to control. The only thing that is predicable about it is its unpredictability. It feels like it costs more than it’s worth. Most homeowners ban their family members from going near it six months out of the year. What is it? The single room that, no matter how hard you wish, hope, and try, is always 10 degrees hotter or 10 degrees colder than the rest of the home.

Is glass or a curtain the perfect partner for your shower-bath combo? Here are 5 good reasons for each bathroom solution via +houzz
If you don’t have the space (or budget) for a separate shower enclosure and bath, you’ve probably decided on a combined shower-bath. But should you go with a shower curtain or glass shower doors to enclose it? Some of us might gravitate toward the softer look of a colorful piece of waterproof fabric that can be changed at will, while others might love the no-nonsense efficiency of a sheer pane of glass. To help point you in the right direction, h...

Federally mandated water heater changes go into effect April 16, 2015. The National Appliance Energy Conservation Act (NAECA) first addressed water heater efficiency in 1990, and it has had updates in 2004 and 2010. The next phase has a new update to the rules for increasing minimum energy efficiency standards. Learn more on our blog! #WaterHeater #waterheaterinstallation

I served over 38 years in the Navy and so I have lived in places all over the world. In each of these locations, when I lived in civilian housing, I have used a number of plumbing and heating companies. Ideal Plumbing, Heating, Air and Electrical is, without a doubt, the best of any of these companies. Their services are reasonably priced, they are responsive to my requests, and their technicians are always courteous, on time, competent and complete all services in a timely, professional manner. I would not use anyone else.

Joel Casdan is the best. He was knowledgable and helpful in letting me know my needs and in installing my new water heater today. I was glad to have his help in fixing everything the way it should be. I will call upon Ideal and Joel for any future plumbing, heating, air and electrical needs. THANK YOU!

I needed help with finding a certain part for a leaky toilet, so I stopped by Ideal. No, I didn't have the faulty part with me...but I knew what I needed, so I just asked where they kept that type of part and I would look for it. Instead, I received an unwelcome lecture and boring analogies from the guy who was there at the store, telling me why he couldn't do anything for me without knowing the brand, size, model number (yada, yada, yada...). The only reason I came to Ideal for my project was because I assumed they would have more selection in their showroom than the home centers, who predictably have only the same two brands which are one-size-fits-all made-in-China garbage. AND, I assumed they would have better service than the echo-filled cavernous, devoid of sales associates aisleways of Lowes and Home Depot. I'm no plumber, but I did graduate from high school and I don't need to be insulted by a business I'm reaching out to for help with a simple issue.

Anthony, I apologize your experience wasn’t what you had hoped for and I’m sorry you felt our employee insulted you while he was assisting you in our showroom. Many toilets have similar looking parts, but are not interchangeable. By way of suggestion, a digital camera or camera phone is very helpful when searching for parts. Close up and broad angle photos of the inside of the toilet are especially useful. Because many parts are incompatible, it’s useful to make note of the toilet brand, when possible. You can even email us your picture to help identify what you already have. All the Best, Don Teemsma, President/Owner, Ideal Plumbing, Heating, Air & Electrical

We couldn't have been more satisfied with the service, consideration and politeness of the men who assessed our problem and then resolved it very quickly. Our air conditioning unit had to be replaced and this occurred during one of our worst heat spells. In addition, I have allergy issues, and without this unit having been promptly replaced, I would have had breathing difficulties. I would recommend Ideal Plumbing without hesitation and give them five stars. They are indeed "IDEAL"!

Since becoming a San Diego home owner in 1971, we have used Ideal as my plumbing service support company. Ideal, then, was working across the street on Waring Avenue under Don's father's management. We have since moved to a second home; but, still use Ideal for all of our plumbing needs. Their crews are and have been highly effective and use the best replacement hardware and practices that have always been installed with meticulous care and thoroughness. My wife and I would not think of using any other plumbing service provider for even the most complex service repair or even the most routine upkeep service. Yes, the best plumbing support sometimes requires premium pricing; however, their long term fully warranted successful results prove the worth of their efforts. Our more than 40 years of experience cannot be easily overlooked. Completely clean and reliable results speak to their success. We classify their support personnel as true professionals and all have been gentlemen that we can fully trust with our finest fixtures and surroundings. After their departure, the only sign of their work is beautifully installed shiny new parts that operate flawlessly. Very Respectfully, Jim and Paula

I just want to praise Bill at the front desk for his great helpfulness. I have lived in San Carlos for 28 years and have come into the Ideal showroom many times to buy a fixture or part. Although I could have gone to the Home Depot, I knew that I would be sold the appropriate (and high-quality) part by Bill. Along with the parts, he freely offers advice from his long experience as a plumber. This is invaluable to me as one who does most of his own repairs for financial reasons. Bill has always been honest, knowledgeable, friendly, patient and anxious to do right by me, qualities which are not common nowadays. As one of the public faces for your business, he does great credit to your company.
