It is remarkable when the community comes together to do something nice for one of their own. People are always hearing about all of the bad things going on in the world that it is nice to hear about something good. During the summer months, many of the world’s elderly population have to suffer the heat. Some risk heatstroke because their body temperatures to not register as the younger populations temps register. What this means is sometimes the elderly person will not know that they are as hot as they actually are. This puts them at risk for heatstroke or death. Because of this fact, it is important for everyone to check in on the elderly population that is living alone.
Winter and summer can be especially difficult for the elderly living on social security. When they have anything that breaks it can break their budget. Goettl and Sunny Plumbers both know this very well. They spend their days out in the field and they run across many individuals that are doing without air conditioning because they can not afford to repair them. Goettl Air Conditioning recently did something positive with the help of their sister company the Sunny Plumbers. Goettl heard about a 94-year-old woman that was living on a tight budget. They learned that her air conditioners broke during the heat of summer. Nevada is incredibly dusty and hot in some locations so no unit could mean death to this elderly individual.
Jean Jackson, the 94-year-old female, had spent most of her life in the area. She knew about the summer heat and how bad it was without units to cool her. The day her unit to a dump Ms. Jackson began worrying she may have to move to a nursing home. Living on social security makes it difficult to have anything repaired. Fear of heatstroke began to set in and Jean began to worry. Social Services took her name down but they were unable to disperse money to make the repairs. Goettl learned of this woman’s Delima. A good deed was in order. Out of their pocket, Goetti and The Sunny Plumber purchased the parts to make a split unit for Ms. Jackson. The unit will heat in the winter and cool in the summer. Pipes were run and the unit was successfully installed.
