Melissa Taylor of Bill Howe Heating & Air Follows in Generous Footsteps of Bill and Tina Howe

San Diego HVAC Employee Begins Giving Initiative Early to Send Soldiers Home for the Holidays

Melissa Taylor of Bill Howe Plumbing

April 5, 2013 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing continues to encourage “paying-it-forward” spirit in all employees and plumbers in San Diego, CA. The company started with one man and one truck over 30 years ago and has grown into the Bill Howe Family of Companies serving most of San Diego HVAC, restoration and flood services and all plumbing. Bill and Tina Howe have retained the quality and trust of a small family-owned and operated business, focused on giving back to the community, without sacrificing service.

In addition to a never-ending dedication to local community outreach, Bill and Tina Howe are adding the Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station to a long list of organizations they wish to help. The Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station, together with freedom station, has a mission of helping transitioning soldiers; Military Heroes in transition that have returned home injured and/or disabled. The organization is near to Bill Howe employee, Melissa Taylor. She has a long history supporting men and women in the military; many members of her family are in the military including one of her sons serving in the United States Marine Corp, and her father who is retired from the USMC.

While the government helps to care for them medically, there is a sometimes a gap in the holistic care they need. Melissa’s response speaks to this need; reuniting them with friends and family during a time of the year that can prove so lonesome in the best of circumstances. “So far we have raised over $800 for the Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station,” said Melissa Taylor of the San Diego HVAC company, Bill Howe Heating & Air Conditioning. “In just two short weeks, everyone has proved they care and want to help. We have even raised our original goal amount and expect to exceed it with no trouble, we can’t wait to present, not just a check, but a thank you to as many military men and women as we can for the sacrifice they have made.”

The original goal for Melissa’s fundraising initiative is set at $2000; however, in the first week, through the generosity of all the company’s plumbers in San Diego, CA, she has raised over $125.00 plus an anonymous donation from one of Bill Howe’s customers. Melissa expects to exceed the original goal amount and make a difference in many soldier’s lives. “This is all so exciting, and I thank you, Melissa and Bill Howe Plumbing from the bottom of my heart for coming on board and being a part of this journey,” said Judy Sexton, on the Board of Directors for Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station, “We will never let you go.”

The Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station seeks to support our “warriors” in a number of ways to improve quality of life and ease the transition from military service to civilian life. They assist in four main groups: seriously injured just returning home; those suffering post-traumatic stress disorder or traumatic brain injury; those undergoing physical therapy, and warriors who have been medically retired and remain in our community. Their mission is to be “a hand up, not a hand out.” The service they offer for transitioning military is paramount as they leave service, often wounded, and begin to rebuild a life in a culture so different from the climate in which they sacrificed for their country.

“The men and women in our military have made so many sacrifices for our benefit and helping them is the least we can do,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “I am so proud that we have cultivated a company full of caring individuals who want to spread the giving spirit; it is very exciting what we can all do together.”

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.
