Employees Participate in 27th Annual Heat’s On
This annual community event provides complementary furnace clean and check services to elderly, disabled, and low income families within Dane County to ensure their heat will turn on when cold temperatures hit. As many as 60 homeowners were given a thorough heating system review and service thanks to our GHAC workers along with other members from Local 601.
On Saturday, October 18th (12) General Heating and Air Conditioning employees volunteered and donated their time for the 27th annual Heat’s On project. The Heat’s On event is a community service endeavor through Madison Area Mechanical & Sheet Metal Contractors Association (MSC) and Steamfitters Local 601 which provides complimentary furnace clean and check services to elderly, disabled, and low income families of Dane County. As many as 60 homeowners were given a thorough heating system review and service thanks to our GHAC workers along with other members from Local 601.
In addition to a successful day of community service, Mayor Paul Soglin recognized Saturday’s accomplishments with a proclamation. The mission of Heat’s On is to reduce the occurrence of elderly and low income citizens going without heat or facing other life threatening emergencies associated with their home heating systems throughout the winter.
The Dane County Energy Services identified and provided the project with homes in need of service. MSC and Steamfitters Local 601 successfully executed their mission this year with the help of our contractors by providing the manpower and 18 trucks. Supplies to fill the trucks were charitably contributed by First Supply, Gustave Larson, Industrial Control, Johnson Supply, Design Air, and Temperature Systems, Inc.
Thank you to all of the employees who took time out of their day to help with this very worthwhile cause.
