Cool Care Heating & Air continues to champion for the local community by conducting a second Comfort for Heroes campaign that started last week.

Cool Care is donating a brand-new heating and air system either to an active duty military family or veteran in the Greater Midlands with promotional help from Fox 102.3 and Rock 99.7. Nominations can be made by others or on their own. To register, please go to the “Contest Page” on or Entries will be accepted through Friday, November 9th online with a winner being selected the following week.

Launched in May, with collaboration from Bryant Heating & Cooling Systems, Carrier Enterprise, Aeroseal, 94.3 The Dude and, Comfort for Heroes received an overwhelming response for our inaugural campaign marketed toward first responders. The program is the brainchild of Teresa Wardlaw, Co-Owner and President of Cool Care Heating & Air. “The military and first responders have always been important to us. Most of us have loved ones that have served in either capacity, and we wanted to be able to help families who make those sacrifices,” she stated.

The first winner was Fire Marshall Terry Mueller, a first responder with the City of Cayce Fire Department. He and his wife, Nancy-Lynne, live in Northeast Columbia. Cool Care provided The Mueller’s with a brand-new Bryant high-efficiency heating and air system, including installation and a whole home assessment, at no charge to them. Cool Care also performed an Aeroseal duct sealing to improve their indoor air quality, reduce dust and significantly lower their utility costs.


The importance of serving the community is why Cool Care Heating & Air enjoys donating.

Mrs. Wardlaw expressed, “It’s a wonderful opportunity for us, and we are grateful to be able to do it.”  The units that Cool Care has donated over the years have always ended up with the right families, with the most need, according to Wardlaw. Seeing the excitement from the family puts things into perspective for her. “It gives you hope that there is still good in today’s complicated world that we live in,” she stated. “We all need those gentle reminders once in awhile.”
