Bill Howe Family of Companies Among the Healthiest in San Diego

Well known San Diego AC repair and plumbing service company receives recognition for healthy initiatives

May 13, 2014 San Diego, Calif. – The Bill Howe Family of Companies has been committed to employee happiness and wellbeing since opening their doors in 1980 offering plumbing services in San Diego.  AC repair, installation and restoration & flood remediation divisions expanded the company while increasing the number of employees to care for in 2007 and 2009. Part of their commitment to employees has been to offer advanced training, education, and full wellness programs to ensure a well-balanced work and personal life.

In 2012, seeing a growing need to help their employees maintain better health and understand how to begin actively taking control of their own well being, the San Diego plumbing company partnered with professional wellness coaches, BARR Corporate Health. Prior to 2012, Bill and Tina Howe, owners of the family of companies had incorporated several small initiatives throughout the company in an effort to assist in increasing health awareness.

“What we realized in all of our many attempts at positive healthy endeavors was the amount of work and time needed to care for and nurture these programs,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of Bill Howe Family of Companies. “We saw small success, but were ultimately stalled by our lack of experience in running full time programs.”

The San Diego Business Journal hosts San Diego’s Healthiest Companies Awards to recognize businesses committed to increasing health awareness and wellness initiatives for the community, employees and their families. On May 7, the Bill Howe Family of Companies’ wellness committee attended the ceremony where they were ranked 2nd in the medium sized business category. This is the second time taking a high ranking for the San Diego plumbing company, having been ranked first in 2013 in the same category.

This year, the business sizes and competition increased and the San Diego plumbing company was honored to once again be recognized.“We have stepped up our efforts this year and are continuing to promote our health incentives, participation and endeavors that we offer,” said Tina Howe.  “We are very pleased to be able to help build not only a healthy company, but a healthy industry as well.”

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.

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.
