Give Warmth This Holiday Season With Adam Mechanical
The local heating and air conditioning company is giving one family a new furnace this winter.
We all feel a little more generous during the holiday season. Whether it’s dropping a dollar in a Salvation Army kettle or collecting coats for needy children, winter is a time for giving.
It’s the same way at Adam Mechanical, a family-owned heating and air conditioning company based in Havertown. Brothers Seth and Zack Samuel, who own the company, install a new furnace each winter for a family who can’t afford it through The Giving Project.
Seth Samuel said the giveaway idea first came to the brothers because of the needs they see in homes around the area every fall and winter.
“When we went out to service calls, we noticed a lot of people who couldn’t afford to get their heater fixed or replaced. We can’t fix every one of them, but we felt bad, so we decided to pick one person we came across and give them a free heater,” Seth Samuel said.
“We did that because we grew up kind of poor, too. We just knew that not everyone can afford a heating system.”
At first the Samuels picked a client they’d met. In recent years, though, they’ve allowed people in their service area — Delaware and lower Montgomery counties — to nominate someone they know who might need a new heating system. You have until January 31, to submit a nomination.
The Samuels brothers, and some of their employees at Adam Mechanical, will pick the winner. Then, they’ll install a new Rheem furnace, provided by P & N Distribution, Adam Mechanical’s partner in the project. Everyone donates their time to do the installation.
Here’s a feature on last year’s recipient:
Some past winners had gone months or years without heat, because the cost of replacement was simply out of reach, Seth Samuels said.
For the Samuels brothers — who have decades of experience and have been in business together since 2002 — it’s a way to give back to their community with something that can be life-changing for a family.
“There’s a lot of single parents, mother or fathers, out there, or older people, they can’t afford it, they’re on a fixed income,” Seth Samuels said. “If you know anyone — a family member, a neighbor, anyone — who needs this, tell us their story.”
