Family who went without AC for 7 years wins unit

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

A deserving Phoenix family has won a free air conditioning unit, after suffering for a long time without air.

How did they survive the triple digit summers?

"Basically pouring water all over yourself, it's pretty bad," says new AC owner Ken Hartman.

Ken and Bambi Hartman have had a lot of hot summers. They lived without air for 7 years.

"It's just amazing we won this, now the dogs are going to be comfortable, we are going to be comfortable," says Hartman.

Today that's all changing. They won a free AC unit.

The couple, who foster 7 dogs in their home with the Great Dane Rescue of Arizona, said things just kept coming up and they never had it in their budget to buy a new AC unit.

"There's many times we had to pack up Danes during summer and go to a hotel."

A co-worker nominated the couple, and they never thought they would actually win. They beat out a hundred other families.

Chas Roberts says this is a highlight of doing business here in the valley.

"We do it because we like to give back to the community. It's always been a part of our philosophy to share," says Sissie Shank of Chas Roberts AC and Heating.
