Consumers, community group pair to offer low-cost furnaces

KALAMAZOO COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Dozens of needy families in Kalamazoo County are enjoying a gift that will keep on giving for years to come.

In the weeks leading up to Christmas, Consumers Energy partnered with Community Homeworks, installing 22 high-energy furnaces into low-income homes.

Each furnace was sold for $100, while normal retail cost is $2,500.

"We were notified that we got the grant to do this, and we had to get them all installed within six weeks so they were all done by Christmas," said Larry Winling, with Community Homeworks.

Each person to receive a reduced furnace had to sign up for 6 education workshops.
