10 Years and 300 Free Furnaces Later: Service Legends Continues to Warm Hearts and Homes


Angela Newton Digital Marketing Specialist

For the 10th year in a row, Service Legends is proud to announce the launch of its annual Warm Your Heart program, giving away 30 furnaces to Des Moines area residents between December 7, 2020, and February 14, 2021.

Through the Warm Your Heart program, Service Legends aims to improve the lives of those in the community by installing free furnaces in homes for local residents that do not have the means to do so on their own. Service Legends is seeking help from the community and asking for nominations of neighbors, family, and friends who are in need. The nomination form can be found at

With the impacts of COVID-19 being felt around the state, the need among families may be even higher this year, making it more important than ever to provide necessary heat to a home. 

“We believe that no one should go without heat,” says Brian Leech, owner of Service Legends Heating & Cooling. “After 10 years of offering the Warm Your Heart program, I’ve heard countless stories of Iowans with terrible loss and tragedy in their lives and it brings tears to my eyes to be able to help them. A furnace is just a small way for Service Legends to give back to our community and provide the gift of warmth.”

An internal selection committee reviews each application and determines which families will receive the gift of warmth for their home. Families are selected based upon need, their story, and the resources available in the foundation. If selected, a representative from Service Legends will conduct an onsite visit of the nominee’s home to assess the family’s need and investigate the scope of the project. The free furnace comes with a 10-year parts warranty and 1-year labor warranty.
