For 9 years, Peninsula Heating & Air's goodwill contest Comfort & Joy has helped those in need. In partnership with Trane, each year the lucky winner of Project Comfort & Joy will receive, FREE OF CHARGE, an energy efficient Trane heat pump system professionally installed by PHA, with a prize value of over $5,500-$7,500! ANYONE is free to apply, this is not solely a needs-based contest. The winner is chosen by drawing, live on the radio during the Christmas season each year.
You may nominate yourself, or someone you know. All we ask is that you share “your story” with us. For example, here are some of our previous winners’ stories:
The Pagans- Mrs. Pagan and her very young children displayed unimaginable strength while seeing her husband and her children’s father fight, and ultimately lose, his battle with brain cancer.
The Pliums- This diverse family of 15 includes 10 adopted children, many with special needs.
The Montagues- Their lives were turned upside down when Mr. Montague became legally blind.
Gail Levine- A hardworking single mother, raising three responsible, well-adjusted teenage sons, no longer has to heat her home with a wood-burning stove.
Calisse Manning- After acquiring legal custody of her three young grandchildren, this civil servant’s retirement had to be placed on hold in order to provide a safe, secure and loving home for the children.
Joleen Wentworth- After losing her job, Joleen relied on space heaters and one window AC unit to provide comfort in her home because her highly inefficient system made her electric bills unmanagable.
Elizabeth Spencer- Widowed senior, a 3-time cancer survivor! Struggling to meet the financial needs of her health problems, Mrs. Spencer often had to keep her inefficient system set at extremely low temperatures to compensate. Her new, FREE, efficient system now allows her to be comfortable in her own home.
