Madison, Wis. August 23, 2017 — Madison Area Mechanical & Sheet Metal Contractors Association (MSC) and Steamfitters Local 601 are seeking requests for veteran homeowners in Dane County area to receive free furnace maintenance. On Saturday, October 7, 2017, more than 50 area steamfitters will volunteer a day of labor to inspect and service heating systems in qualifying veterans’ homes. Trucks and equipment used for the day are donated by local heating contractors and replacement parts are donated by area suppliers.
“Serving veterans during Heat’s On really makes our day. I’m proud our team makes a volunteer commitment to help those who have served our country,” says Kendall Richards, President of All Comfort Services, a heating, cooling, plumbing, and electric contractor in Madison.

The Heat’s On project has been serving Dane County residents since 1987. The purpose of Heat’s On is to reduce the occurrence of residents going without heat or facing other life threatening emergencies associated with home heating systems. “Lack of maintenance and dirty filters can shorten the life of furnace. Something this simple can save not only hundreds of dollars in fuel costs, but it can save a life,” says Brad Werlein, President of General Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc., a commercial and residential heating and cooling contractor in Madison.
The MSC is a non-profit contractor association representing contractors in the heating, piping, air conditioning and sheet metal industry. Their members are dedicated professionals who provide high-quality, cost efficient products and services with a commitment to safety.
