American Standard Heating and Air Conditioning's My Comfy Home Coloring

Contest Announces Eight Finalist Families Competing for a $15,000 Home Comfort

Makeover

TYLER, Texas, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Constantly vacuuming, dusting and wiping down surfaces will soon become a thing of the past for one lucky family. American Standard Heating and Air Conditioning announces eight finalists in its My Comfy Home Coloring Contest and invites America to vote online at http://www.americanstandardair.com/comfy for the family they think is most in need of a home makeover valued at $15,000, including a consultation with home comfort expert and author Hannah Keeley. The deadline for voting is November 27, 2007.

Picturing a cleaner, healthier and more comfortable home

The contest invited families to drop their dust cloths and pick up some crayons to work together on their entries. Parents or caregivers were asked to submit a 100-word essay on why they wanted to make their home more comfortable, and their child was asked to draw a picture of their home. Judges sifted through entries from around the nation to select the finalists.

Americans are invited to view families' stories and illustrations online and vote for one of the following:

-- The Campagne family, Tucson, Ariz.

-- The Hernandez family, Dade City, Fla.

-- The Oakley family, Des Moines, Iowa

-- The Pieper-Hemmings family, Hendersonville, Tenn.

-- The Preston family, Willow Grove, Pa.

-- The Stannard family, Kent, Wash.

-- The Tuznik family, La Port, Ind.

-- The Wertanen family, Coloma, Mich.

Entries described and illustrated everything from an allergy-prone family of 10 that stirs up dirt, dust and dander, to a home with poor indoor air caused in part by two pet hamsters named "Munchkin" and "Luey."

One winner will receive a prize package that includes:

-- A complete home comfort system featuring the American Standard

AccuClean(TM) whole-home air filtration system

-- A half-day in-home consulting session with Hannah Keeley

-- A signed copy of Keeley's new book, Hannah Keeley's Total Mom Makeover

-- A Comfy Pajama Jam party for the kids, which includes $250 cash and

eight American Standard goody bags

In addition, seven runners-up will receive a free, in-home assessment of their heating and air conditioning system; a $1,000 discount on a new American Standard comfort system; a signed copy of Hannah Keeley's Total Mom Makeover; and a goody pack for kids. The winners will be named in mid-December. Americans are invited to check back on http://www.americanstandardair.com/comfy to see who wins.

Help Your Family Breathe Easier

The contest is designed to help families make their homes cleaner and more comfortable without all the trouble and time. Part of the solution is the American Standard AccuClean whole-home air filtration system, which removes up to 99.98 percent of the dirt, dust, pet dander and pollen from your filtered air.

"Less dirt in your air not only means a healthier and more comfortable living environment, but it means less house work because fewer dust particles settle on your furniture or get stirred up by your vacuum," says Joyce Warrington, brand director, American Standard Heating and Air Conditioning. "The My Comfy Home Coloring Contest is an opportunity for families to win a home comfort makeover and learn about easy tips they can implement."
