BURTON — Goyette Mechanical trucks and volunteers gathered at 7 a.m. Saturday morning at Courtland Center in Burton for Project Heat’s On. This is 12th year for Project Heats On that is orchestrated by Goyette Mechanical and the City of Burton providing Burton residents with much needed furnace cleaning, repair and even replacement free of charge for families in need.

Several local organizations and businesses also help out with donations to make this happen in the community. Selected homes also receive free smoke detectors provided by the Burton Fire Department.

Since 2009 Project Heat’s On has serviced nearly 600 homes in Burton.
