Winners of the Howe Healthy is Your Heart Drawing Contest Announced

 Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. and the American Heart Association receive entries from local children with many creative ways to stay healthy and happy

May 17, 2011, San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. and the American Heart Association have announced the winners of the “Howe” Healthy is Your Heart Drawing Contest. The nine-week contest garnered 94 drawings from children ages 5-12 throughout San Diego County who described how they keep their hearts healthy and drawings of their image of healthy hearts. Participants’ descriptions included a wide variety of ways to keep their hearts healthy, ranging from exercising and eating right to not fighting with siblings to receiving flowers from a boyfriend.

Grand prize winner, Summer Stewart, won a $300 gift card to Toys ‘R Us® and tickets for Summer and her parents to attend and be recognized at the American Heart Association’s Heart Beach Ball at the Hotel del Coronado on June 11, 2011. The 12-year-old’s description of how she keeps her heart healthy included “exercising, eating right, regular doctor check-ups and not smoking or drinking.”

Runners-up winners, Noah Rico, age 9, Mackenzie Lurkins, age 7, and Ella Constable, age 5, each received $100 gift cards to Toys ‘R Us®. All participants received the “Heart Health at Home” guide, a fun-filled book of ways to stay active and healthy at home, and a guide for parents filled with information to help make healthy food and lifestyle choices.

“We received so many talented and entertaining drawings that we found it really difficult to choose a winner. Actually, it was so hard that we added another runner-up winner so that we could have three runners-up instead of two,” said Bill Howe, owner of Bill Howe Plumbing, Heating & Air, Inc. “Encouraging healthy lifestyles and healthy eating is a priority at our company. Having five daughters myself, I understand the importance of teaching these good habits at an early age. We are happy that so many children and families participated in this contest.”

Bill Howe Plumbing, Heating & Air, Inc. is a proud sponsor of the American Heart Association’s 2011 San Diego Heart Beach Ball.

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.
