Giving back to the community has always been an integral part of our company culture and everyday operations. Our active participation in the community makes it hard not to deliver exceptional service to all of our friends and neighbors.
One example of our civic involvement is the support we give to the local arts scene. Among the organizations we support is the Community Arts Center in Wallingford, which provides numerous opportunities for people of all ages to create and enjoy the visual arts. We’re also a big advocate for the Hedgerow Theatre in Media, a nationally renowned venue known for the developing future generations of theatre artists.
To learn more about these two outstanding artistic groups or to make a donation of your own, please visit their websites.
Of course, I can’t mention community involvement without highlighting our most ambitious initiative: the Fueled Up & Fired Up Pick 5 Challenge. As many of you know, we founded this event to benefit the Nether Providence Township First Responders (including the police force and volunteer fire companies of South Media and Garden City) and Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Philadelphia chapter.
Last year’s event drew more than 300 participants and raised more than $18,000. In just three years, we have raised more than $40,000, plus an additional $15,000 just for Susan G. Komen through our Pink Truck campaign.
This year’s Fueled Up & Fired Up Pick 5 Challenge is scheduled for Saturday October 18. Registration starts at 8:30 am. All pre-registered participants receive T-shirts and prizes and awards will be given to each age group. Breakfast and lunch is provided for participants and their families.

The Fueled Up & Fired Up Pick 5 Challenge—and the many other events we participate in throughout the year– provide us with great opportunities to meet our friends and neighbors, stay involved and give back to the communities we love to serve.
Gerald Kuller, Comfort Consultant, answers the most common questions from our customers about home energy audits.
Q: How long will my home energy audit take?
A: A home energy audit generally lasts from two to four hours. During this time, a Wilson Comfort and Indoor Air Quality consultant will do a visual inspection of the living space, attic, basement (or crawl spaces), and perform a series of tests using special diagnostic equipment.
Q: How much will it cost?
A: The cost of the energy audit is minimal but its long-time effect can pay big dividends. Once we identify improvements, we can connect you with the Keystone Home Energy Loan Program (Keystone HELP). This program provides qualifying Pennsylvania homeowners with low-cost loans for energy-saving improvements, including high-efficiency heating, central air conditioning, air sealing, insulation, windows, doors, geothermal and “whole house” improvements using Home Performance with Energy Star.
Q: Can I watch what you do during the audit?
A: Absolutely. We encourage this. As you accompany our consultant, let him know about any issues or concerns you have in different rooms (drafts, uneven temperatures, musty smell, etc.).
Q: What improvements can save me the most energy?
A: While every home is different, our experience in doing hundreds of audits and improvements shows that some of the best investments are sealing gaps, cracks and other leaks that let outside air into your home; adding insulation in the attic; sealing and insulating air ducts that run through attics or crawl spaces; and repairing or replacing old or poorly functioning heating and cooling systems and appliances.

If you’re a propane customer, you are familiar with the many benefits of propane for the home: It’s a clean, efficient and reliable fuel for heat, hot water, appliances and more. But it’s also a super-efficient, extremely low-emission vehicle fuel that’s ideal for delivery trucks, taxis, school buses, farm vehicles and lawn maintenance equipment.
That’s why we have converted 50% of our service fleet to run on Propane Autogas, which produces far fewer emissions—20% less carbon monoxide, 40% less nitrogen oxide and 10% less carbon dioxide—than gasoline. It also costs as much as $1.50 less per gallon than gasoline.
As we replace our vehicles, we will continue to use clean burning Autogas.
If you or someone you know has a fleet of vehicles, we offer a full range of Autogas services, including fuel supply and conversion assistance. We’d love to show you how your business or municipality can save money on fuel and be more environmentally friendly.
