Review story andphotos byEmmitt B. Feldner PLYMOUTH – Jason and Nanci Knuth and their family had their home – and their hearts – warmed Saturday.

The Knuths were the latest recipients of the Heat U.P. Wisconsin program, sponsored by Lennox Industries.

All American HVAC of Adell installed a new furnace and ductwork at the Knuths’ home on Greystone Drive, with all parts, materials and labor donated.

“This means as much for me to do something for you as it does to you. You guys were at the raw end of a bad deal and we want to make sure you guys and your family will be safe,” All American owner Travis Thomas told Jason, Nanci and their daughters Katelyn, Haley and Hannah, as they revealed the donation.

The Knuths, who are both managers at the Plymouth McDonald’s restaurant, moved into their home about five years and immediately began having problems with the HVAC system.

They discovered that the original furnace was too small and had been installed in the wrong spot, Jason explained. That led to water from the AC unit backing up into the furnace and the growth of mold throughout the ductwork.

That in turn led to health problems for the family – especially their daughter Katelyn – and made their heating system inoperable.

The Knuths were proceeding with the expensive replacement when they were nominated for the Heat U.P. Wisconsin program.

Since the program’s inception in 2010, Heat U.P. Wisconsin has installed more than 300 furnaces and provided more than $1.3 million in support to recipients throughout Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

Thomas explained that Lenox donated the furnace, thermostat, and chemical cleaning of the ductwork. Hillcrest Builders and Kilian Management Service, which owns the Plymouth McDonald’s, donated to help make the project possible as well, he added.

“Pretty much everything was donated,” Thomas said.

“It will be nice to actually stay in our house and not be cold,” Nanci told the All-Amerian crew before they took a break for lunch provided by McDonald’s. “This is very, very appreciated. We’re just glad to be mold-free.”
