Started in 2010, Heat U.P. Wisconsin has become an anticipated fall ritual for independent Lennox dealer across Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
Each year on the first Saturday in October, participating dealerships and their employees reach out within their local communities to provide free installations of high-efficiency Lennox gas furnaces for individuals and families in need. Up to one hundred furnaces are provided at no cost by Lennox with all labor and installation materials donated by the installing contractor and their employees. Joining the campaign in 2011 Honeywell has provided free thermostats for these installations.
Since the programs start just three years ago, more than 213 furnace installations have been provided, offering more than $1,000,000 in support to local families thanks to your submissions. Recipients include families or individuals from a broad group of submissions representing a wide range of needs from physical, mental, or social disabilities to financial struggles, job loss, unemployment, or the passing of a loved one. Heat U.P. Wisconsin has also offered support and thanks to many who have or currently serve in our military protecting the freedoms that allow us to and own, operate, and work for the very companies that make this program possible.
