Speedtown Comfort Heating and Cooling, Speedway, Indiana, and Johnson Controls teamed up to install an HVAC system in a mortgage-free home honoring a U.S. military veteran.
Speedtown joined other local contractors and Building Homes for Heroes at a Welcome Home ceremony at the Avon, Indiana home of Army Sergeant First Class Gary Pearson on May 25.
Johnson Controls donated a complete YORK heating and cooling system and Speedtown provided installation.
“The support of companies like Johnson Controls and Speedtown enable our organization to reach more injured veterans in need and help them begin to rebuild their lives,” said Chad Gottlieb, director of construction development, Building Homes for Heroes.
Building Homes for Heroes is a national organization that recognizes the tremendous sacrifices of men and women of the United States Armed Forces by supporting the needs of severely wounded or disabled soldiers and their families. The organization strives to build or renovate quality homes and gift the homes to severely injured veterans nationwide, mortgage-free.
“Speedtown Comfort was overjoyed when asked to help on this project. When we got the call, there was no hesitation to help one of our brave veterans who give us the freedom to live in a great country, said Tony Wilson, vice president, Speedtown Comfort Heating and Cooling.
