Southern Trust Home Services is proud to offer a program for any active or retired military member or veteran. If you know a veteran or active military member how has a failing or failed heating or cooling system please fill out this form to inform Southern Trust Home Services of deserving military members or veterans.

Southern TrustSouthern Trust Home Services, a leading electrical, HVAC, and plumbing company serving southwest Virginia, is now accepting nominations for its yearly “Heat for a Hero” program. The selected nominee will receive a new heating system for their home, with time and materials for installation donated by Southern Trust in time for the Christmas holidays.

“This program was designed to help a veteran or active service member who is in need of a new heating system,” said Ted Puzio, owner of Southern Trust Home Services. “With the winter months quickly approaching, it is important for those in need to have a warm home to escape the winter temperatures.”


Nominees can be retired veterans or those actively serving in the military. All nominees are confidential. A previous winner was a wounded veteran in Giles County who was using a wood stove for heat but was no longer able to keep it stocked.

“This program is about paying it forward,” Puzio said. “Our business has been able to grow in part because of those serving in the military. This program is a way to give back to someone who has sacrificed so that we may have the opportunity to live the American dream.”
