Barron Heating is honored and grateful to be a part of this community and to have served you for nearly 50 years.

Here at Barron, we know the importance of keeping your home safe, warm and comfortable. The Furnace Fund will provide proper heat for a family that would otherwise go without.
So as the weather gets cold, help us eliminate one more worry and give families in need the warmth of a furnace.

2020 Recipient families:
Maple Falls Family
The Barton family received many recommendations for Barron’s furnace fund, each commenting on what good, truly deserving people they are. Living in a multi-generation family home, they reside in Maple Falls, where it gets very cold. The family’s furnace gave out over five years ago, and unable to afford to fix or replace it, they have had to make do without heat ever since. The Barron team was honored to install a new furnace for the Barton home this season, to help keep the family warm for this and many more cold winters ahead.
Robert and his wife Maryanne, or "Chickee", are beloved elders of the Lummi Nation community. As a fishing family, they rely on a successful season to pay their bills. Down on their luck with a poor fishing year, the Morris’ were faced with no heat for the winter and no funds to replace their failed furnace. Barron installed a new furnace, giving the couple, their three boys, and many grandchildren a warm home to share as a family.
2019 Recipient families:
Phyllis Queen was born and raised in the same home her entire life—raising her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren there. After her husband’s passing, she now lives alone, battling cancer since 2017. Chemotherapy has caused neuropathy in Phyllis’ extremities, causing consistent pain that is unbearable in the cold, and she’s lost half of her body and muscle mass, making it difficult to regulate her own body heat. Living on a fixed income, she’s unable to afford the skyrocketing power bill due to her 30-year-old furnace, and her pellet stove does not supply her entire home with adequate heat. She often sleeps on the sofa because it’s too cold in her bedroom. Taking some of the worry out of her life, Barron installed a Daikin ductless mini split system, ensuring Phyllis and her family would stay warm and comfortable throughout her home.
Lisa Earhart is a grandmother raising six of her grandchildren, as her daughter is unable to. She is employed full time, but money is very tight, especially with a large loan taken out to pay her husband’s medical bills after his recent passing from cancer. Heating their home with just small electric heaters and a fireplace, a new furnace has been a dream but nowhere near doable for the family. Finding the perfect solution, Barron installed a Daikin ductless mini split system for their mobile home, giving the entire family peace of mind and a warm space to call home.
A single mom of six, Theresa Brand recently underwent breast cancer surgery and is now doing chemotherapy. With a long road of recovery ahead, she is the sole caregiver of her daughter who was born with epilepsy, cerebral palsy and now a new diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. The Brand’s furnace went out in their 1930s home last winter, and due to their illnesses they have not had the funds to replace it. They have been relying on space heaters and their oven alone for heat. Barron transformed their space by installing a new Carrier furnace, ensuring they now have a warm and comfortable home they can feel safe in.
