Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania Employee Volunteers and Contractors Provide Free Clean and Tune Services to 41 Pre-Selected, Elderly and Disabled Customers in Need

Tuesday, September 25, 2018

To prepare for this year’s winter heating season approaches, Columbia Gas contractors and employees volunteered to provide complimentary clean and tune services to the heating systems to 41 pre-selected elderly and disabled customers across its Pennsylvania service areas on Sept. 22.

The volunteers found safety issues at more than half of the homes, and Columbia Gas linked eligible customers to its Emergency Repair Program (ERP) to help them pay to address any safety concerns uncovered during the clean and tune service.

“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 Deb Davis, Columbia Gas Manager of Universal Services. “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.”

Columbia Gas 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. During September, 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 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.

Columbia Gas thanks its participating contractors:
