Gargaro's World: An HVAC Bailout?

Everywhere you turn there are government bailout discussions. Everyone from major financial institutions on Wall Street to domestic auto companies are looking for some cabbage from the taxpayer.

However, count Roberts Heating and Air Conditioning as part of the solution, rather than part of the problem. According to, the contractor is putting a new twist on an old promotion.

During February, Roberts Heating and Air Conditioning is attempting to locate the oldest furnace in Fort Collins. Once they find that furnace, the owner will be awarded with a new furnace from Carrier along with free installation. They are calling it the company’s Furnace Bailout contest.

I think it is an interesting idea and a good way to localize a national issue. It was important enough to get in the Fort Collins newspaper, and unique enough to get into my e-mail box via Google Alerts.
