Union Energy Inc.: New Furnace Rental Program Offers a Warm Alternative This Winter

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 31, 2006) - This winter, Union Energy is taking the worry - and the high up-front cost - out of purchasing a high-efficiency furnace with the launch of its new all-inclusive furnace rental program.

"Many people will be thinking about purchasing a new furnace this fall, but won't have the cash on hand - or may have other ideas on how to spend it," said Steve Bodi, of Union Energy. "Our new furnace rental program is a smart, simple and cost-effective way to keep warm this winter and manage heating costs."

Starting at just $59.99 a month, this rental program has no up-front fees and includes everything - installation, all repairs and annual maintenance. In addition, the complete, worry-free package covers:

- Warranty for life covering parts and labour for all repairs

- Priority emergency service for no heat situations

- Free annual maintenance including filter change

- Licensed technicians for expert advice and service

- One number to call for 24/7 service

"People can replace their old inefficient furnace by trading up to a dependable, high efficiency furnace with our new rental program," adds Bodi. "For many homes, the energy savings alone could be as much as 30%."

For example, replacing a low efficiency furnace with a high efficiency furnace in a 1500 square foot house could result in an annual energy savings of up to 38%, depending on other features of the house such as windows and insulation.

Union Energy's new furnace rental program gives homeowners the power to keep warm, without the high cost of purchasing. Consumers can find out more at unionenergy.com or by calling 1-888-718-6466.
