Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania employee volunteers and contractors provide free clean and tune services to 50 pre-selected, elderly and disabled customers in need

Monday, September 25, 2017

As this year’s winter heating season approaches, Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania, Inc., reminds its customers to prepare now for cold weather, and to stay safe by using a professional contractor to clean and tune furnaces or other heating equipment.

To prepare the more vulnerable population for the upcoming winter, Columbia Gas contractors and employees volunteered to provide complimentary clean and tune services to more than 50 pre-selected elderly and disabled customers this past Saturday. If the clean and tune service revealed any safety repairs that needed to be made to the customer’s heating system, Columbia Gas linked eligible customers to its Emergency Repair Program (ERP) to help customers pay for the safety repairs.

“Regular heating equipment maintenance is beneficial because the equipment will run more efficiently, the life expectancy of the equipment can be extended, and risks such as carbon monoxide poisoning can be prevented,” said Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania President Mike Huwar. “It’s important for all of us to check our equipment now so we don’t find ourselves in an unsafe situation when we turn our furnace on that first chilly night of the season.”

All customers, regardless of income, are eligible for a clean and tune discount during the month of September. Mention Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania’s promotion to any of the participating contractors listed below and receive a $10 discount from the contractor.

As a reminder, if you suspect carbon monoxide poisoning or a natural gas leak, evacuate immediately, and then contact 911 from a safe location. Please visit us online to learn more about our Emergency Repair Program.
