Direct Energy is committed to giving back to the Edmonton community and this month they have partnered with Seniors Outreach Network Society to donate furnace tune-ups to in need seniors.

Spokespeople Lloyd Baron, District Manager, Direct Energy Home Services Alberta and Erica Wilson, Board Member, Seniors Outreach Network Society and furnace tune-up recipient Bill Worbetz will be available for onsite interviews.


Visuals include on-site furnace tune up in a local home where a technician will complete a 22 point inspection which looks at the safety, efficiency and effectiveness of the furnace.
