Local HVAC Companies Help Habitat for Humanity Home Builds
Georgia contractors and distributors have been a driving force behind the Atlanta area Habitat for Humanity projects since 1988 when Jim Corbin of Corbin Comfort Systems joined with MAACA on the first home. It grew each year with more and more companies participating in the projects. In 1996 Clark Howard got involved with the Atlanta chapter.
“Since 1996, I have had the good fortune to sponsor many houses for hard working, deserving families. Most have never owned their own home before. And as always, every one of them worked hard building their new home, right along with us, side by side,” said Clark.
This years homes were located on Hutchens Road in southeast Atlanta. The heating and air conditioning systems were donated and put together by:
- Central Heating and Air Conditioning, team leader: Keith MacKinnon. Equipment donated by Mingledorff’s.
- Corbin Comfort Systems, MAACA, Jim Corbin, owner. Equipment donated by Trane.
- Ferguson Heating and Air Conditioning, Alan Ferguson, owner. Equipment donated by Lennox.
