More than a dozen Jackson residents will stay warm this winter, thanks to the help of some local volunteers.
This past weekend, mechanical service technicians from Geiger Brothers participated in the Heat’s On Project, providing free furnace inspections for low income senior and disabled homeowners.
The four technicians that participated performed preventative maintenance on furnaces and boilers, which ensures they are operating efficiently to keep fuel cost as low as possible. Additionally, heat exchangers and safety controls were inspected and tested to confirm safe operation.
“It’s just our way of showing good will back to the people in the community,” said Brian Woltz, Geiger Brothers’ Service Manager.
The volunteers also inspected smoke detectors in the homes, replacing old batteries and added smoke detectors where needed.
Geiger Brothers would like to thank Callahan’s Do-It Best for donating the furnace filters for the project and West Virginia Electric for donating smoke detectors and batteries.
