Lacombe business’ Feel the Love campaign turns on the heat for family in need

Kles-Air Mechanical looking to install furnace for family in need

A Lacombe business is looking to help heat the home of a family in need for the third year in a row.

Kles-Air Mechanical is looking for nominations in the Lacombe area for the Feel the Love campaign, which is for a family in need of new furnace. This is the third year Kles has installed a furnace, after previously installing heat in homes in Red Deer and Alix over the last two years.

“The project started in the U.S. over 10 years ago and it is a program that helps homeowners in need. We do a furnace install for them,” Sheldon Klessens, president of Kles Air Mechanical. “Lennox supplies the furnace and our guys donate their time. We donate all the parts and materials to get the ball rolling.”

Klessens said that furnaces can cost typically anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000 and the families selected over the last two years were very grateful.

“The one family we did it for hadn’t had heat in their house for a couple months and were starting to get cold in October when we finally got this thing in for them. They were appreciative,” he said.

Klessens said the installs are very rewarding for his staff.

“It is good to get out into the community and help anyway we can. This program helps us do that and it is a great cause,” he said.

Nominations are still open and Klessens is hoping they see some nominations from Lacombe.

“We hope that we can help someone out in Lacombe but we haven’t had anyone in Lacombe the last couple years. We are trying to get the word out there so we can get more families involved,” he said.

To nominate a family, you can go to feelthelove.com.

“Once all the nominations are in for our territory, they will give us the names and we choose form their who we feel is the most deserving family. If anyone knows anyone in need, get out and nominate people. Spread the word,” Klessens said.
