Meet Bill Gressinger, a 92 yr old, WWII Vet we have adopted as one of our Envi Heater Patron Saints...read on to see why.
Bill called after reading about the envi heater in a magazine and shared with us about his high heating bills. He asked for a little discount to buy one heater for his home. After passing the phone around the office, all the ladies came into my office with tears in their eyes and said, "Mark, you have to talk to this man and help him". So I did and the rest is history...but I have a feeling his story is not over, so stay tuned for more in coming blogs. Besides manufacturing and selling heaters, we here at eheat are also about helping others whenever we can. One group of Americans I personally appreciate so much are those WWII vets who served our country during the great war. There are not many of them left so it is our wonderful privilege to have been given the honor to bless Bill Gressinger. Well anyway, several months passed (a year?) and we had not heard from Bill until one day he called out of the blue and spoke to one of the girls in the office about his reduced heating bill. When they told me, I didn't believe them and thought they must have heard wrong, so eventually after a few more weeks, we managed to get Bill on the phone again (he doesn't have a cell phone and he doesn't have a machine, so you have to get lucky to catch him when he is not puttering around in his woodshop). Read for yourself, word for word, what Bill told us...
Bill Gressinger, Oregon - Saved 54% on his heating bill
“I live in a 1973 mobile house. There is a little insulation in the ceiling and there is none in the walls. Three years ago, my wife became very ill and she passed away. And I’ve been living in the mobile house on my son’s property. In the winter here in Oregon, it’s been freezing and below all week and it’s still at freezing level today. I put the two Envi heaters in here and just leave them on. Before I had to run my furnace and it was costing me anywhere from $230 to $250 a month during the December, January, February, and sometimes first few weeks of March. Now my last two bills I have saved 60% off my bills. I haven’t received my last bill but it has been colder and I’ve run my furnace a little bit. When it’s above 40 degrees outside, which it usually does, then I turn my furnace on 15-20 minutes and then leave the Envi’s on for the rest of the day. The living room has 2 doors into the kitchen area. I’ve shut the doors so that the Envi only heats up the living area. It’s about 400 square feet. I am so appreciative of Mark getting these heaters for me. They work wonderfully. I am so pleased with the heaters. They have dropped my heating bill to $111 a month.”
Bonnie Pennypacker , Ohio - Saved 40% on her heating bill
"I wanted to take this time to thank you for an EXCELLENT product. I drastically reduced the cost of heating my home last year. I couldn't believe how comfortable the rooms were. I live in the snow belt off of lake Erie, so while other parts of North East Ohio have 2 inches of snow, I have 2 feet! Usually my gas bill is around $250.00 a month in the winter, last year my bill averaged $100.00 and although my electric bill was a little higher then previous years it was only about $50.00 higher per month. That is a $100.00 a month savings in energy costs due to the use of your heaters.
With the night time temps. dropping already I have been turning my panels on at night to take the chill out of my house and then I am able to turn them off by mid morning when the outside temps rise. Before, my furnace would have been coming on throughout the night, but not now! My Mom uses mostly wood to heat her home, but with a wood burner you get extreme heat in the rooms surrounding the wood burner and extreme cold in the back bedrooms. With the panel heaters in the bedrooms, you go to bed in extremely comfortable temperatures.
We have both noticed that we have much less dust on our furniture and floating in the air with our new heater compared to using our furnaces! Also, your customer service dept. is awesome! It's so refreshing to know that there are still some companies who value their customers and back their products! Thank you for a wonderful product! Without our new heater, I don't know how we would have afforded our energy bill last year with the rising cost of gas and electric!
R Peaslee, Pennsylvania- Saved 55% on their heating bill
"You should know that my wife and I have blatantly violated your right to keep your product secret by showing off the heaters we purchased and bragging them up to friends, relatives, and visitors. We purchased twelve of them last year in hopes of reducing the cost of heating this OLD COUNTRY HOUSE. We used to heat with fuel oil and burned as much as 150 gallons a month at a cost of roughly $400.00 each month. When I looked at the amperage draw of your units and the area each would heat I was certain that we could reduce the fuel consumption. My friends and relatives all warned me that my electric bill would go up a lot. It did. It went up about $100.00 a month, BUT, we burned maybe 10 gallons of fuel oil which roughly translates to $27.00 saving us about $273 a month. Does anyone think I'm unhappy? Really, we love the heaters. Thanks. Richard & Ruth"
