For our 20th anniversary, we wanted to do something over the top to thank our community for keeping us in business for two decades. We decided to give away the one thing that turns a cold house into a cozy home: a new heat pump. Entrants sent in their name, email, phone number and age of their unit.

We’ve all seen those contests where you could win something. You might not need the item that they’re giving away but you enter anyway. What if you really need that item they’re giving away?
That was the case for a Johnson City family who really needed a heat pump since theirs had given up.
So happens a Kingsport heating and air conditioning company was giving one away to celebrate their 20th anniversary and like a miracle, they won.
The sign out front of Dorothy Pruitt’s home says it all, winner. She was the winner of a new heat pump from Leinback Services in celebration of their 20th anniversary.
The old one had seen better days and she, one of daughters and her kids were heating with a kerosene heater basically living in one room.
Dorothy has struggled over the last few years following the death of her husband.
“From where Dad passed away I think it hit us all hard and you know I think everybody like including Mom got it the worst,” Daughter Clarissa Parlier said.
“Her only source of income was my Dad’s disability where he was sick and that paid the bills. When my Dad passed away that all got taken away,” Older daughter April Henry added.
And the last thing she needed was for the heat pump to break.
“She went three years without a job even having a college degree. She applied for multiple jobs and she got turned down everywhere,” April says.
So when Rita saw a chance to win a new heat pump for her Mom, she entered.
“One morning I just got up and walked in and I’m going to look on Facebook and the first thing that I seen pop us was Lienbach Heat and Air Service,” April said.
“We did home shows at the Kingsport home show and the Johnson City home show and they could enter that way or they could got on our web site and send in an email with their information. We had well over a thousand entries,” Mary Massarueh with the company told us.
The odds weren’t in the family’s favor but last Thursday Leinbach Services surprised Dorothy with just what she needed a brand new heat pump.
“She was crying last Thursday when we met with her. She said I didn’t expect God to perform a miracle and he performed one today,” Massarueh said.
“Like everybody has said God definitely answers prayers whenever we need them,” Daughter Clarissa adds.
After all it is the season for those kinds of things.

Meet the winners of the 2018 heat pump giveaway
Read their stories and share in their joy of winning a brand new heat pump from Leinbach Services.
The Liang Family of Kingsport are the winners of our 5th annual heat pump giveaway in November 2018.
Richard and Charmaine Liang bought a house and quickly realized they needed a new heat pump. They suffered an entire winter last year with insufficient heat.
“Our home is not warm enough,” Charmaine said. “Sometimes it heats, but sometimes it doesn’t. We just bought the house last year, so we cannot afford a new heat pump.” Richard agreed.
Charmaine also said that even though their house was cold, their winter electrical bills were still expensive. “We would save a lot of money with a new heat pump.”
The fact that their unit was 15 years old has a lot to do with the reason why they were spending so much on electricity yet receiving such little heat in return.
