Selection Process and Criteria. Lennox will allocate the Nominees amongst the participating Dealers based on the Nominee’s proximity to the nearest participating Dealer. Lennox will then select finalists from all nominations received during the Nomination Period for each participating Dealer (“Finalists”). The number of Finalists chosen may vary by Dealer location, significance of the community impact the Nominees have had, and number of nominations received. Selection criteria (weighted equally) will include:
- in the event of a furnace Nominee, a Nominee’s need for a furnace in order to have a habitable home, or
- in the event of an outside condensing unit Nominee, a Nominee’s need for an outside condensing unit in order to protect against adverse health effects from intense periods of heat typical for the region where the Nominee resides, and
- degree of financial hardship, and
- significance of community impact, and
- any military service (current or veteran).
Dealers or their representatives may choose to inspect Finalists’ residences for suitability as part of the final recipient selection process. Each Dealer will then select one (1) recipient based on the above criteria. A Dealer may also elect not to select any recipient to receive the new Equipment if no Nominee meets the selection criteria. Recipient selection and notification will take place on or around September 1, 2020. Recipients or their Designee must be available October 5, 2020 - October 11, 2020 for the installation of their Equipment, or another date shortly before or after October 5, 2020 - October 11, 2020 if extraordinary circumstances prevent the Nominee (or the Nominee’s Designee) from being present over such period, and the Dealer who will install the Equipment agrees, in its sole discretion, to the alternative date. If the Equipment cannot be installed between October 5, 2020 – October 11, 2020, and the Nominee and the Dealer cannot agree on an acceptable alternative date, the selected Nominee will forfeit the Equipment, and the Dealer may select a new recipient from the original Finalists.
