Warm the Heart is a not-for-profit organization that exists as a means to provide replacement furnaces to needy families in the States of Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Maryland.

Horizonís co-founder and senior vice president, Mark Aitken, says- ďWe feel that morally and professionally, weíre obligated to give back to the community. Weíre a heating company, so what better way to give back than to provide free and low-cost heating services?Ē

Whether you prefer to keep the room a little cooler or a little warmer at night, cold winter temperatures donít pose much of a problem for most people. Indeed, trying to agree with your family on the perfect temperature may be the biggest challenge most of us face.

But for some local families, the simple act of turning up the heat in order to stay warm isnít a viable option.

Thatís why the employees of the local plumbing, heating, and cooling company, Horizon Services, have created a not-for-profit organization called Warm the Heart. Their mission is to provide free replacement heating systems for needy families, as well as free or discounted heating repair services.

Warm The Heart has been operating since 2005, when they first donated 2 new furnaces to families in Delaware. Since then, theyíve given away 98 furnaces throughout Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Maryland.

Those who have received free furnaces include victims of accidents and/or diseases, mentally challenged individuals, families of disabled veterans, and unemployed or displaced workers. In some cases their old equipment has completely broken down, and in others itís so old and inefficient that their energy bills are sky-high.

This winter, Warm the Heart will surpass 100 total heaters installed (since inception) by donating 10 new units to needy families in the area. The donation mirrors the growth in Horizon Services, which now employs over 700 people.

Horizonís co-founder and senior vice president, Mark Aitken, says that Warm The Heart exists because itís the right thing to do: ďWe feel that morally and professionally, weíre obligated to give back to the community. Weíre a heating company, so what better way to give back than to provide free and low-cost heating services?Ē

This year, thanks to Warm the Heart, 10 area families will be able to turn the thermostat up at night or down, whichever is most comfortable for them.

Horizon Services also operates Horizon Helps, which donates over $2 million to local charities and youth organizations.
