Local family receives free furnace through “Heat Up Minnesota”

by Leslie Ehrenberg

An Appleton family was chosen to receive the “gift of heat” through The Heat Up Minnesota-Dakota program.

Erik and Kari Appenzeller came home about a month ago to the smell of gas. The gas company was quickly called and everyone was safe. The bad news was the furnace was red tagged as inoperable.

In their quest to fix their furnace, the Appenzellers found their furnace to be 40 some years old, with no replacement part available.

“When we bought the house, we would have never guessed it was that old,” said Kari about the furnace. They purchased the home in Appleton about two years ago.

The couple, who have been married six years and have a 6-year-old daughter Tatiana, were facing the possibility that they were going into the winter season without a furnace.

Kari works full-time at Caseys and Eric is very part-time at Dollar General. “With not a lot of income coming in, we couldn’t afford to fix our old furnace, better yet buy a new one,” said Erik.
