A 93-year old woman in Glasgow, Ky., lost her husband last November after 73 years of marriage. Thousands of miles away, a disabled veteran in Rancho Cordova, Calif., suffers from asthma. Both were in dire need of a new HVAC unit, and neither could afford it.
They are two of the 210 recipients of new HVAC units in the Lennox International “Feel the Love” campaign for 2020, which honors residents and families facing physical, mental or social disabilities, financial challenges, or those who have made an impact through military or community service.

HVAC Services Inc. in Kentucky and Bonney Plumbing, Electrical, Heating and Air in Rancho Cordova, Calif., installed the two new HVAC units. They are just two among the hundreds of HVAC installers and local community members who took part in the Lennox Residential program, which has given back to local communities since 2009. Local installers across the country began requesting nominations in June from community members.
We received more than 50 nominations from across the greater Sacramento region"
"We received more than 50 nominations from across the greater Sacramento region,” said Oscar Poort, Bonney General Manager. For the first time this year, Bonney is participating in the program in partnership with Lennox Residential. For the past 10 years, the Lennox “Feel the Love” program has donated heating and cooling equipment to help deserving residents across the country, helping more than 1,500 families throughout North America stay comfortable and safe in their homes.
supporting the community
Across the country, deserving individuals and families are nominated in their hometowns to receive new heating and cooling systems. Each nomination recognizes an “unsung hero” who may be going through hardship, helping others in need, or simply supporting their community. Lennox provides each selected recipient with a high-efficiency Lennox Merit system complete with a three-year Comfort Shield Labor Protection Plan.
Local dealers donate their time and labor to make the program a success. Past nominees have included teachers, firefighters, community volunteers and families impacted by natural disasters. This year, Lennox has expanded the program to include medical professionals and other essential workers on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“As many prepare for a winter working and learning from home, a new HVAC unit can make a significant impact on one’s health, comfort and happiness,” says Stephanie Bond, Director of Marketing at Lennox Residential.
Since 2009, “Feel the Love” has been a key program for Lennox Residential to give back to its communities
With the ongoing challenges as the pandemic continues, Lennox is expanding the “Feel the Love” program through the end of the year to continue installing much-needed HVAC units to recipients. Among the 2020 recipients are COVID-19 frontline workers, including medical professionals. Since 2009, “Feel the Love” (formerly known as Heat U.P.) has been a key program for Lennox Residential to give back to its communities.
corporate responsibility program
Culminating in “Feel the Love Day” in October, Lennox partners with HVAC installers and local community members in the United States and portions of Canada to deliver HVAC units at no cost to people who consistently put others before themselves and need a helping hand. Lennox is committed to contributing to its communities, investing in the future of the HVAC industry, and giving back through its corporate responsibility program.
Displaying generosity benefits everyone, including corporations like Lennox, who receive well-deserved recognition for their investments in doing good. The entire HVAC industry benefits when companies become helpful and constructive forces in the communities they serve.
