Three Northwest Washington families going through difficult situations, including a Sumas cancer patient and mother of six children, recently received free heating systems at their homes from Barron Heating & Air Conditioning.

A single mom of six, Theresa Brand recently underwent breast cancer surgery and is now receiving chemotherapy. With a long road of recovery ahead, she is the sole caregiver of her daughter, who was born with epilepsy and cerebral palsy and recently was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

The Brand family’s furnace went out in their 1930s home last winter, and due to their illnesses, they have not had the funds to replace it. The family had been relying on space heaters and their oven alone for heat. Barron Heating donated and installed a new Carrier furnace, ensuring the Brand family now has warm, comfortable and safe heating in their home.

“Barron Heating is honored and grateful to be a part of this community and to have served people for more than 45 years,” said John Barron, owner of Barron Heating. “We couldn’t think of a better way to say thank you than by giving back through our Barron Heating Furnace Fund.”

Barron Heating also donated Daikin ductless mini split systems, providing heating and cooling, to a Stanwood grandmother raising six of her grandchildren after her husband passed away from cancer and to a Sedro-Woolley great-grandmother living alone in an inadequately heated home while battling cancer. The value of Barron Heating’s donated equipment with installation in the past year is estimated at more than $25,000. Barron Heating will be seeking more recommendations later this year for families in need.
