Heating Assistance for Ohioans could be reduced by $60-70 million this year
According to today’s news headlines, Ohio could lose $61.9 million under a plan approved by Senate Democrats, or more than $77 million under a proposal put forth by House Republicans. Either way, Ohio’s needy families will be losing out on getting the assistance they desperately need!
The cost of heating your home is projected to be 10% higher this year; and the experts believe that this winter may be one of the coldest on record!
So, what can you do?
If you are a low-income Ohio resident, then you must check out the HEAP (Home Energy Assistance Program). This program can help you meet the high costs of heating your home. In order to be eligible, you must submit the 2011-2012 Energy Assistance Program’s HEAP application.
If you do not qualify for assistance, consider implementing the following in order to help reduce your heating costs this winter:
- Set back thermostats: The Department of Energy reports that 1 degree can equal as much as 3% reduction in a homeowners cost to heat and cool a home. So, if you can set the thermostat back as much as 5 to 8 degrees each day while away or during sleeping you can realize a huge savings.
- Change your furnace filter: this not only helps keep your environment clear, but also can help reduce your electrical consumption by allowing the furnace to run more efficiently.
- Perform annual maintenance – get a tune up now: annual maintenance helps return a heating system back to factory fresh conditioning ensuring efficient run time.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
