FCHA Charity of the Month: 2018

Monday, December 31st, 2018

It’s important to our Fort Collins Heating & Air Conditioning team to give back to the community. For years, we did the FCHA charity of the month. Here’s how it worked:

  • We are continually asking for feedback from our customers on which non-profits they support and why. Our marketing team keeps a list of all organizations that are submitted.
  • Each month, our management team nominates three local non-profit organizations from that list.
  • We then have our customers vote via our email campaigns on one of those three charities to be the recipient of the $1,000 and be that month’s FCHA Charity of the Month.

These are the charities we chose for the year of 2018.

woman-plungerThere are two main plumbing lines connected to your home: your main water line and your sewer line. Both are equally as important, though we often think less about our sewer lines. This is because problems often go unnoticed until disaster strikes, and the common signs can be quite subtle. However, it’s important to be aware of the signs we’ve provided for you in this blog.
