Kentucky Contractor Installs Donated HVAC System in Mortgage-Free Home for US Veteran
MILWAUKEE — Wright Mechanical partnered with other local contractors and Building Homes for Heroes during a Welcome Home ceremony in Louisville, Kentucky, for U.S. Army Sgt. Devin Marshall. Throughout his service, Marshall suffered many injuries that have impacted his mobility. His injuries require specific modifications to his home in order to live safely and focus on his recovery.
To support Marshall, Johnson Controls donated a YORK® heating and cooling system with a Wi-Fi® capable YORK touch-screen thermostat to better assist him with adjusting his home’s temperature without the need to get up. Wright Mechanical donated the HVAC installation services for the veteran’s new home.
“Having the support of companies like Johnson Controls and Wright Mechanical gives us the opportunity to honor injured veterans with a mortgage-free home,” said Chad Gottlieb, director of construction development, Building Homes for Heroes. “The customized amenities companies like Johnson Controls are able to bring to these homes allows veterans to live their lives in greater comfort and dignity.”
