Winner of “How Ugly is Your A/C?” Contest Announced by Thornton & Gooms

Aug. 09, 2010

Thornton & Grooms, a family owned and operated Residential & Commercial Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Specialist since 1937, continues to find fun ways to give back to the community.  A recent example of this was their “How Ugly is Your A/C?” Contest.

About Ugly A/C: Do you think you’ve got the ugliest central air conditioning unit in the area? That’s what Thornton & Grooms of Birmingham, MI recently asked the public.  If your A/C was voted the ugliest by Thornton & Grooms’ panel of experts, they’d replace it for FREE with a new high efficiency unit. Contestants were encouraged to submit a picture of their air conditioners by May 15 with only one being ugly enough to stand out.

And the winner is…Joseph Lim from Sterling Heights. Lim’s “ugly duckling” was chosen from over 30 entries, giving him the title of Ugly A/C Champion and a sparkling new unit in his backyard, compliments of Thornton & Grooms.  “It was a tough decision as there were many ugly a/c’s, but Mr. Lim’s stood out and to hear his excitement when we called to tell him was great.” said Mike Bergrstrom, VP, Thornton & Grooms.
