A father of three from Henderson, Kentucky, received a new furnace on Tuesday.
David Alexander says he and his three children have been using space heaters to keep warm during the winter months, and after going without a furnace for three years now, David says the new installation couldn't have come at a better time.
"It gets kind of tough. we run a lot of space heaters, and that tends to run up the electric bill quite a bit as well," David explained. "I got three little guys upstairs that are 6, 7, and 8, so we have to make sure the bedrooms are open at night for that fireplace to heat enough inside the bedrooms as well."
"When I saw that I'm actually getting this furnace installed, I mean, that's like the first thing I've ever won - I'm like 'heck yeah!'," he continued. "So it's been really exciting."
David's new Carrier heating system was professionally installed by J.E. Shekell, Inc. after he won it through the 44News Scariest Furnace Contest.
