32st Annual Heat’s On
Do you know a Dane County veteran who can use a furnace tune-up? Heat’s On is seeking requests for veteran homeowners in Dane County to receive free furnace maintenance during this year’s event held October 19, 2019. The Heat’s On program, organized by the Madison Area Mechanical & Sheet Metal Contractors Association, is collecting information from veterans who would like their furnace checked.

“Lack of maintenance and dirty filters can shorten the life of a furnace,” says Brad Werlein, President of General Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc., a commercial and residential heating and cooling contractor in Madison. “Something this simple can save not only hundreds of dollars in fuel costs, but it can save a life as we experienced during last year’s event.”
In 2017, Heat’s On replaced the furnace of a World War II veteran who had been taken to the hospital twice with carbon monoxide poisoning. The leak in the furnace that was causing the poisoning was discovered and fixed by Heat’s On.
