Emcor Services, Air Con, Canaday’s Precision Air Conditioning and Heating, Georgia Electric Supply House and Train worked together to give Paul Seckinger a new heating and air unit at his house.

Greg Trowell works for Emcor and organized the groups to come out to install the unit.

“(The Seckingers) called me,” Trowell said. “Paul was fixing to come home, and they called me to look at his air conditioner for his trailer.”

Trowell said the unit at Seckinger’s home was not cooling well in the extreme heat and not efficient to meet his needs.

“He needs a humidity controlled unit that will cool his house and maintain humidity,” Trowell said. “They are also putting in a clean effects air filter.”

He said the air filter will clean the air by 90 percent or more. Trane donated the air conditioning unit and the filter.

Fred Canaday offered to donate and install the duct work. Georgia Electric Supply House donated the wiring.

“Everybody’s been real generous to help Paul,” Trowell said. “He’s been staying at his parents, but he wants to come home, too. Hopefully this will help and he can get in there and it will be clean air.”
