About Bill

Bill Howe started this company with his father, Bill Howe Senior, in 1980. Originally named, AM/PM Sewer and Drain Cleaning, Bill set out with a mission to provide San Diego with high quality work at a fair price. In 1985 he changed the company name to Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. and to this day, he continues to play an active role in the company’s success.

Originally from Chicago, IL, Bill Howe joined the Air Force in 1971 and worked as a carpenter during his four year term while also attending Minot State University in North Dakota. Bill moved to Los Angeles and pursued a plumbing career working for a small company while also attending plumbing school at LA Trade Tech and business school at Pasadena City College. In 1980, Bill moved to San Diego to start his own company and worked in the field for Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. for 10 years before retiring from the field and committing full time to developing the business and working with experts in other industries including heating, air conditioning and restoration to allow the company to grow. In 2007, Bill Howe officially expanded the company and opened Bill Howe Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. In 2009 Bill Howe Restoration & Flood Services created another opportunity to offer his customers a one-stop-shop for all of their property needs.

Bill Howe has been very active within the community and the industry throughout his career, including serving as the president of the Plumbing Heating Cooling Contractor’s Association (PHCC) of San Diego. Prior to that, Bill Howe served on the Board of Directors from 2005-2006 and as the Treasurer for the 2011-2012 term.

Throughout his career, not only has Bill Howe worked to develop relationships with other owners in the industry but he’s also been passionate about helping young adults who are interested in entering the field. Bill Howe has been an active supporter of San Diego Job Corps’ Plumbing Program as well as the Andrew Chapman Mentorship Program, a program dedicated to providing a comprehensive mentoring program of job training and skill development to assist troubled youth in Southeast San Diego and help them become productive and independent individuals. Bill also regularly volunteers at the San Diego Food Bank.

Bill Howe has five daughters, two grandsons and three granddaughters and resides in Poway with his wife, Tina Howe.

What Andy B. via Lennox Pro says about us

We have been using Bill Howe Plumbing’s service for more than 25 years and have been pleasantly surprised at how consistently they perform an excellent service call. We use them for our home and our rental properties, and their dispatchers and technicians have always been the best at problem solving; our tenants have told us how great the service is as well. When we needed air conditioning service, naturally we called Bill Howe first. There’s no reason to call anyone else. I know the job will be done right the first time, with fair pricing and professional service.

What Esther La Fuze says about us

You have an incredible team! My suite has had major issues constant backups. In the last few months we had a horrible flood that caused us thousands of dollars in repairs. Your team was so attentive and took care of all the repairs. Just yesterday another back up called them immediately and like quick responders they were there to take of it! A huge thank you from my La Costa providers and staff! We appreciate your hard and dedicated work!
