Heating and cooling bills alone can cause some concern for individuals suffering from financial difficulty. Adding the need for a new unit altogether is typically more than a cause for concern, as it can cause a feeling of fear or panic in those with limited incomes. Following Penn Live’s January 3rd article, “Emergency Home Heating Grants Are Available for Low-Income People,” Arizona HVAC Education urged consumers to seek out any possible grants or financial assistance available for heating and cooling needs. These grants can help homeowners pay professionals with HVAC training for both labor and equipment, allowing homeowners with low incomes to enjoy the wonder of a comfortable, climate-controlled home.
Deb Kiner’s PennLive.com article revealed the potential grants available to homeowners of low incomes. The grants are awarded based upon financial need, and cover a wide array of issues, including simple equipment fixes, paying utility bills, and replacing a faulty unit. Residents facing service termination or a winter without heating are encouraged to apply.
Heating and cooling bills and equipment can cause concern for many homeowners—particularly those facing the potential replacement of an entire unit. To help combat a feeling of panic for homeowners with low income levels or who are experiencing financial difficulty, many cities and states have developed programs to assist low income families in replacing faulty or malfunctioning heating systems. These programs are need-based and require proof of financial strain, but may prove invaluable for those who qualify. To find qualifications and existing programs, check with local housing authorities.

Following Penn Live’s revelation regarding home heating grants, HVAC Education urged homeowners to consider seeking out grants and other types of assistance from local entities while under financial duress. Upon discovering that one’s heating has gone out, the stress of finding a reliable professional with adequate HVAC training and the money to pay said professional can lead to extreme anxiety and, in extreme cases, extreme fear. To alleviate both, many cities and states are developing programs to help homeowners in need of home repairs, including those needing HVAC repairs or replacements. To find grants or assistance in their area, homeowners should contact the local housing authority.
