Contest gives residents in Eastern Iowa a chance to win a new energy-efficient Lennox furnace

[Vinton, IA] Rabe Hardware, Eastern Iowa’s most trusted residential and commercial mechanical contractor, announces a new contest searching for the area’s oldest working home furnace.  The Oldest Furnace contest gives area homeowners a chance to win a free energy-efficient Lennox SLP98 furnace installed free of charge by one of their NATE certified installers.

“As a furnace ages it loses efficiency, creating higher energy bills, less consistent heating and leaves homeowner’s susceptible to costly breakdowns.” said Jake Rabe, owner of Rabe Hardware. “That’s why we’re so excited to be offering one lucky homeowner the chance to win a new Lennox furnace.”

Contestants may enter the contest by completing an entry form at the upcoming Rabe Hardware Grand Reopening event on November 20 at 112 W. 4th Street in Vinton, Iowa or on the company website at www.rabehardware.com/fireplaces-stoves/.  All entries need to include the make, model and serial number of the existing furnace which can be found on the furnace nameplate. To qualify, furnaces must be at least 10 years old and there is a limit of one entry per household.  Finalists will be contacted by Rabe Hardware to request a photo of the furnace to verify its age and information.  The grand prize winner will be announced on January 1, 2016.

“We really can’t wait for that special winner to experience the energy savings and improved home comfort” said Jake Rabe.
