Free heater and furnace inspections available for HEAP recipients

Free inspections, cleaning and tuning of heating equipment is available to eligible HEAP recipients in Erie County, First District Erie County Legislator Barbara Miller-Williams (D-Buffalo) announced.

A free carbon monoxide detector and programmable thermostat will also be installed if homeowners do not currently have one installed.

Households must have received a 2015-16 Regular HEAP benefit or be responsible for a heating bill and have income which does not exceed the 2015-16 maximum HEAP guidelines. Applicants must be the homeowner in order to qualify for this assistance.

The program is set to close on Nov. 2 or earlier, if funding is exhausted

Approved homeowners will be provided a list of qualified contractors in your area who have a contract with the state to participate. HEAP will notify the chosen vendor of program eligibility. The vendor will then contact the client to set up an appointment.

For more information or assistance, please contact Miller-Williams’ legislative office at 842-0490 or e-mail
