About Us

About Our Company


Our family-owned business began in 1976 when Becky & Jesse Hill opened the doors to Hill’s Plumbing in Wilson, NC. Under the direction and leadership of Jesse, the company provided a mix of commercial and residential plumbing repair and installation services. 

When his advertisement became the first in the plumbing section of the Yellow Pages in 1981, Jesse began innovating the company through hard work, attention to detail and respect for his family and customers. 

Jesse passed away in 1988 when the Hills’ daughter and son-in-law, Susan and Mark Wethington, purchased the business and changed its name to B&J Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning Inc.  

The “B&J” pays tribute to Becky and Jesse, while “Heating & Air Conditioning” reflected then (and now) our expansion into other home comfort services.

For more than 30 years, we’ve been committed to providing you with prompt, courteous, professional and caring service … all at highly competitive prices. Our mission statement says it best: At B&J Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning Inc our goal is to provide the highest quality service to our customers with honesty and integrity.

We also accept all 4 major credit cards (Am Ex, Visa, Mastercard, Discover).

We are NATE certified technicians.

We perform drug testing for new hires as well as quarterly random tests, and extensive criminal background checks of all employees.


At B&J, we know how important it is to trust the people you invite into your home. That’s why we always:

  • Conduct thorough background checks on every employee we even consider hiring.
  • Send only company employees to your home, and not subcontractors whose credentials we can’t vouch for.
  • Protect your floors with shoe covers from the moment we enter your home.
  • Operate a drug- and alcohol-free work environment.
  • Never permit smoking or foul language anywhere in your presence.
  • Leave your home and work area at least as neat and clean as we found it.
  • Arrive on time, or call ahead to notify you of an unexpected delay, in our clean and lettered trucks. 

As a member of the Nexstar Network, Inc., an international best practices association, these are just some of the guiding principles we adhere to for your safety. Do other contractors and business owners offer you that same level of security? 

Ask all the right questions before hiring a contractor to work in or around your home. And don’t hesitate to ask us all the same tough questions. In fact, we like it when you do! After all, we work hard to be the kind of company we know you want us to be.


We’re proud members of the communities we serve, including Wilson, Knightdale, Rocky Mount, and Kenly! We’re involved in the business community, industry trade associations, and manufacturers whose products we recommend, install, service and repair. 

Here are just a few examples.
