Lacombe family receives new furnace on Feel the Love Day

Kles-Air Mechanical and Lennox Industries team up to help Lacombe family

Kles-Air Mechanical has teamed up with Lennox Industries to install a needed new furnace system for a family in Lacombe.

Darcey Fearon’s family was nominated by his mother and ultimately was the recipient of the install.

“It was really unexpected and a little overwhelming. It is a big deal,” he said.

Fearon said the old furnace in the house was not working and the house was often cold in the winter — particularly in the basement.

“The furnace was original — 1970s. I had to replace the motor twice already and we found out the second motor’s wiring was done backwards,” he said

Fearon had no idea he was nominated until his wife called him with the news they had won the install.

I had no idea we were nominated. They called my wife and she texted me. We tried to find out who nominated us. I was just surprised and it was like, ‘Wow’,” he said.

Fearon said his family was very thankful to Kles-Air Mechanical and Lennox.

Chuck Lenke, territory manager for Lennox Indistries, said the company is pleased to be able to support the communities they and their partners work in.

“It is Feel the love Day across North America and we are doing 325 installs — furnaces in Canada and air conditioners in the southern U.S. We have been doing this for about 10 years now.This will be over $5 million of equipment we donated in partnership with our dealerships donating their time and resources,” he said.

Lenke said helping their customers is important and was thankful to Kles-Air Mechanical, who donated the install and labour necessary to help the Fearons.

“It is amazing watching Kles work. These guys have a great team and they always come out and support the families. They bring gifts for the kids and for the families — it is amazing to watch. These guys give up their time on Saturdays and last year it was actually during Thanksgiving. It is great to be a part of it,” he said.

Sheldon Klessens, owner of Kles-Air, said his teams always enjoys teaming up with Lennox for Feel the Love Day.

“It is important to give back to our community and all of our guys volunteer their time. They love doing it and feels good to help out,” he said.

He added, “Thank you to Lennox and I wish the family all the best.”
