Floresville, Texas. – January 27, 2012 - Jon Wayne Heating & Air was working around the clock in Floresville, Texas last week, where employees volunteered to provide HVAC equipment and services to Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. This build was the last project ever, for the award-winning television show, which relied on South Texas’ industry leader for residential heating and cooling equipment and service.
The latest and final project benefits the family of retired Staff Sergeant Shilo Harris, who was severely burned by an improvised explosive device in Iraq in 2007. “Shilo’s situation reminds us that the sacrifices made by our wounded warriors often continue after they return home,” said Rackler. “This is an opportunity to give back to the Harris family, and build Shilo a safe, clean and comfortable new home that will help his recovery.”
The Harris family had just a few requests for their dream home, said “Extreme Makeover” designer Ed Sanders: an air filtration system and air-conditioning system to keep the home's temperature hovering around 70 degrees, because Harris' injuries affected his nose and his ability to regulate his body temperature.
Jon Wayne Heating & Air in nearby south east Bexar county, organized the installation of the highest efficiency HVAC system on the market, with special indoor air quality products that will keep Shilo perfectly comfortable and will keep the air in the home very clean. “I know I am speaking for all of my team, when I say, we are honored to be apart of this project for this special family” said Don Rackler, Owner of Jon Wayne.
The episode featuring the Harris family will air on ABC on a date to be announced.
