F.H. Furr's Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical Insider Blog

Feel The Love 2020

  We Proudly Participated In Lennox's "Feel The Love" Program Once Again, And We Were Thrilled To Help Our New Friend Shelley Bring Warmth Back To Her Home!

As a premier Lennox dealer, we were honored to have been asked to participate in Lennox's "Feel The Love" program once again this year! This event helps to provide heating and cooling to families and individuals who have served their community selflessly, but don't have the means to heat their homes. That's where we come in! Lennox donates a brand new, high efficiency HVAC system and F.H. Furr installs it, all at no charge.
 
Friends, family, and neighbors all submit nominations for people and families that they feel are in critical need of a new HVAC system. We read through all of their stories and go through criteria that qualifies them to receive the system! This year's finalist was our new friend, Shelley! She's been a pillar in the community for many years, serving with over a dozen charities, many of them military and veteran-focused. Two of the organizations she works closest with are   Operation Enduring Warrior, and   Leashes of Valor. Shelley has given so much of her time, effort, and finances to these causes she loves, all while putting her kids through college, but life has had its challenges! Up until her friend, Brian nominated her for this new system, she hadn't had heating or cooling in her home for six years! Most of us can't imagine going a week without heating and A/C! Fortunately, our team was there to save the day! 
 
Our team arrived with smiles, ready to work! They began by introducing themselves to Shelley, discussing the details of the day and laying out a game-plan. From there, they began the process of removing the old, broken system! Once that was removed, they went to work replacing it with a brand new, Lennox system! While they did their work diligently and precisely, they were also timely, making sure that they worked as a team to get the job done right! 
 
Throughout the day, Shelley told us stories about the charities and soldiers that were close to her heart. She talked about her children, her life, and the difficulties she'd encountered over the years. She felt emotion as she thought of her friend who nominated her for this incredible gift, and she expressed her gratitude for our willingness to be involved in this program that had given her something to truly enrich her life. 
 
After the system was installed, the team cleaned up their work area, made sure Shelley's questions were all answered, and drove off after a day of hard work. While this installation likely didn't feel that different from others, it truly was! Events like these truly make us realize why we do what we do! 
 
We believe that heating and cooling is a necessity that everyone should have access to. We were grateful to have had the opportunity to bring it to Shelley!
