Sept. 24, 2004: ACCA-Central Ohio To Provide Heating Checks For Needy

COLUMBUS, Ohio - On Saturday, Sept. 25, members of the Air Conditioning Contractors of America-Central Ohio Chapter (ACCA-Central Ohio) will join together to provide heating system and carbon monoxide checks to those in need. Over 150 workers within the HVAC industry will donate supplies and volunteer their time in order to complete heating system checks in 100 central Ohio homes, working in conjunction with the Columbus Metropolitan Community Action Organization.

"In the spring of this year, our local chapter established the ‘ACCA Cares' program to send care packages to deployed troops around the world," said Jeff Reed of Custom Air and president of ACCA-Central Ohio.

"Expanding upon that program, we developed the 'Heat the Town, Columbus!' event. With the support of our sponsors, The Columbus Dispatch, WSYX-TV/ABC-6, WSNY Radio, and Panera Bread, the event is now a reality," continued Reed.

The "Heat the Town, Columbus!" mission is to enhance the well-being of low-income residents, particularly those persons who are most vulnerable, such as the elderly, the handicapped, and children, says the association. With a fall heating system cleaning and safety check, homeowners will be able to benefit through reduced energy bills, enhanced comfort, and the mitigation of energy-related health risks. "This is yet another way to give back to our community," said Reed.
