Barron Heating seeking nominees to receive heat pumps, furnaces

While you may be feeling the heat this summer, Barron Heating & Air Conditioning knows some will be needing warmth this winter.

Barron Heating’s annual Christmas in July giving event is centered around giving and compassion for others, according to owner John Barron. The company is seeking recommendations through July 31 for families in need in Skagit, Whatcom, Island, San Juan and Snohomish counties. Three families will be selected to receive a single-zone Daikin Ductless Heat Pump installed at their home.

Also, $100 will be donated to a “furnace fund” from the sale of each Daikin comfort system purchased between now and Aug. 31, making it possible for another three families to be given a new furnace later this year.

The value of the heat pumps and furnaces with installation is estimated at more than $25,000.

“We know there are good families in our communities who are facing difficult challenges,” said John Barron, owner of Barron Heating. “A ductless heat pump delivers energy efficient heating and cooling, providing year-round comfort to a family that otherwise may not have heat this winter.”

The ductless heat pumps will dramatically cut energy costs for the families receiving them. The average monthly cost of using a ductless heat pump in an average-sized home is about one-fourth the cost of using an electric or oil furnace and about one-fifth the cost of electric baseboard heating.

Family recommendations may be made at www.barronheating.com/christmasinjuly/ or any of the three Barron Heating locations.
