Furnace Repairs for Senior Citizens

Monday, October 22nd, 2007

Experts recommend that homeowners have a qualified heating professional inspect their furnace and heating system prior to the beginning of the winter season every year. A routine inspection can ensure that your furnace works efficiently and may even save your life by detecting health and safety hazards!

Beginning October 1, 2007 BBC will offer our Emergency Furnace Repair Program to qualified income eligible seniors who own and occupy their homes in Ward 5. Seniors must be at least 60 years old, and income cannot exceed $12,900 for a one-person household or $14,700 for a two person household. BBC can accommodate only a limited number of seniors this year so assistance will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, or to request an application, please call BBC at 216.341.1455.
