A Home for a Hero: All Seasons Assists in Operation Legacy Project


All Seasons Comfort Control is a family-owned heating and cooling company, but we don’t just define “family” as the people living under our roof.

“We always want to bring our customers into the family with us,” says Chris Long, All Seasons’ general manager, “so we always give them the best options that we can.”

One of those customers is Matthew Renner.

Matthew is nothing if not resilient. A veteran of two tours of duty in Iraq, he was severely wounded by an IED in 2006, an attack that left him suffering from nerve damage, hearing loss, and head trauma, according to WOGL.

After a rigorous PTSD treatment program, and battling a dependency on pain medication, he is married and back in school studying engineering.

Now, Matthew and his wife Katelyn want the same thing most people want: a safe, comfortable place to raise a family. All Seasons Comfort Control heard their story and was happy to help Matthew and Katelyn’s dream come true.

“We wanted to do what we could.”

Working with the Travis Manion Foundation, we helped update the heating and cooling system in the Renners’ Abington home.

“The military just has a place in my heart,” says All Seasons install supervisor Casey Adams, whose brother and father both served. “And when I heard Matt’s story, it really struck a chord with me, so we wanted to do what we could to help him out.”

The Renners had an old HVAC unit, so we installed a new American Standard two-stage variable speed gas furnace, along with a new cooling system.

Their home’s ductwork was severely undersized, so our team upsized it to give them better airflow and more comfort. We also installed a high-end digital thermostat that Matthew and Katelyn can control using their smartphones.

John Zdon, a territory manager for American Standard, said the Renners received a new HVAC system that is prized for its high efficiency.

“American Standard believes very strongly about doing great things in the community and chipping in where there’s a good cause,” he said. “This obviously qualifies for that so when we saw this opportunity we were more than willing to jump on it and partner with All Seasons in this venture.”

A legacy of service

We were proud to work with the Travis Manion Foundation, which provides support for veterans and their families.

Manion, a Doylestown native, was part of a group of Marines selected to help train the Iraqi army. In 2007, he was killed by an enemy sniper while drawing fire away from his wounded comrades and was awarded the Silver Star and Bronze Star with Valor.

Today, his foundation’s Operation Legacy program unites communities through volunteer opportunities such as “Hero’s Home,” which provides home improvements for veterans like Matthew.
