At the start of 2020, mother of four, Ava Hegg found herself thrown into the chaos of being a single parent. Her husband passed away without warning. His passing didn’t leave much of a legacy. Some beautiful hand-built guitars, a few fond memories, and a 1920’s home with little to no heating.
Despite their recent hardships, the Heggs were warm, inviting, and all smiles! Through the smiles, you could still feel the weight on their shoulders. Looking around the home, it’s easy to see love. Ava’s husband was a very talented musician and luthier. Guitars he built hung high on the wall. Near a piano in the corner, we flipped through family photo albums. Images all beaming of what now feel like much simpler times.
For the Heggs, the new heat pump for the main part of their home cuts their power bill in half. The furnace provides Ava and her family with heat and air condit ioning year-round.
In the 1980s, the home had more rooms built over the garage. Because of its more separate nature, Taylor installed a ductless mini-split system. This Daikin unit also provides both heating and cooling. These together ensure that the entire home is comfortable and efficient.
In the end, there were hugs and tears all around. We love our community. You’re our neighbors and you’re our friends! We truly hope that what help we can provide, like what we were able to do for the Heggs, makes a difference and instills a bit of hope.
Every year, Taylor looks to help families in need and impact lives for the better. One of the best ways that we have found to do this is to give those in need a more comfortable home.
During our Warm Hearts campaign, we look to you, our community, for nominations. We need your help to make this happen! Help us discover families in need that are right in our backyard. Like Ava and her children.
Life can throw some curveballs our way from time to time. On occasion, they’re hefty enough to knock us off our feet and leave us bewildered and dazed. Sometimes, a little help can go a long way.
At Taylor, we may not be able to change the world all at once, we can help those in need feel more comfortable. If we’re comfortable, we feel safe — we feel secure. And that may be just the thing we need to get back onto our feet.
Everyone deserves a comfortable home. Nominate a family in need here.
