Angela Coombs – Rutand Town
“Ever since I’ve been here the house always felt damp and cold,” said Angela of her home in Rutland Town. She read about the HEAT Squad in the newspaper and called to find out more.
Angela decided to move forward with the improvements to make her home more comfortable, and because she saw it as a practical use of money.
“I’ve lived so much longer than I thought I was going to, I realized I have to watch my pennies. The improvements are a valuable way to not freeze anymore. It’s wonderful!”
