July Award Winners Announced at Bill Howe

At the Bill Howe Family of Companies, recognition of our team is at the top of our priority. Our mission is simple, take care of our employees and ensure they are healthy and happy, and in turn they take care of our customers in San Diego.

We routinely recognize our team’s achievements, but highlight four different awards each month. At our company meeting, we present each of these awards for the outstanding technicians of the previous month. In August, we were proud to honor: San Diego plumbers, Matthew Tolar and Clarence Davis, Our San Diego’s Best Air Conditioning team, Samuel Ramirez, Ulises Castaneda, Felipe Piche, Ricardo Coca, Michael Saborit, Christina Rodriguez, Brian Dorney, and Jose Gomez, and our all-star HVAC Coordinator, Isaias Arias.

Matthew Tolar, one of our award winning San Diego plumbers, is the recipient of the Above & Beyond Award. Matthew is a graduate of the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling-Contractor’s Academy Journeyman Plumbing Program, one of our Team Leader’s, and a regular volunteer with us each month. He is an incredible teacher, and trains many of our new apprentices, as well as dedicating his time to giving back to the community with our dedicated Bill Howe volunteers, and on his own. We are proud to recognize Matthew for his pay-it-forward spirit.

Our Customer Service Award was presented to Isaias Arias. Isaias is part of our HVAC department that was recently voted as San Diego’s Best Air Conditioning & Heating Company by the Union Tribune, and it is evident that his customer service skills are an integral role in our team’s achievement. During peak season in San Diego, Bill Howe receives an influx of customers needing their A/C units repaired and are often in desperate need. It is hot, especially in our inland communities, and many times people have babies and elderly loved ones to care for. Isaias handles our scheduling and customer needs with expertise and is empathetic to the needs of our customers during the incredibly hot summers.

Our third award, Leading by Example, embodies the Bill Howe Way. We have a commitment to our community and customers to provide them with the highest trained, professional, and properly equipped individuals in a timely manner. We reward one team member each month who exemplifies the Bill Howe standards and Clarence Davis is the winner for July. He had perfect attendance and arrival to his jobs, keeps his truck fully stocked and clean, looks professional at all times, receives outstanding accolades from his customers, and lives our Bill Howe Code of Ethics of honesty and integrity.

All of our team at Bill Howe perform their job with excellence, but we have been highlighting some of the more challenging jobs, or absolutely beautiful installations each month with our Excellence Award. For July, our HVAC team of Samuel Ramirez, Ulises Castaneda, Felipe Piche, Ricardo Coca, Michael Saborit, Christina Rodriguez, Brian Dorney, and Jose Gomez. They had an incredibly challenging rooftop installation at a south bay school. At one point, the team had to get the City involved to gain access in order to ensure the students would return to fully air conditioned classrooms.

Whether you are in need of one of San Diego’s Best plumbers, or a new air conditioning system or tune-up, you can count on the best customer service and the highest trained specialist for your job. Call 1-800 Bill Howe (245-5469) today and request one of our award winning team members!

What David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

I have been using Bill Howe since the late 1980’s, their service has always been excellent, plumbing, heating and restoration. I am most impressed by the integrity of their employees, not only do they know their work/skill, they do not waste time, they are so efficient, they are so helpful and they are a true “service”!

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

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.
