Trane Residential Solutions and Arlington, Texas-based Trane dealer Pearson Mechanical have teamed up to provide state-of-the-art heating and air conditioning equipment for Jackson Merriman, a two-year-old in Highland Village, Texas, and his family.

The family is dealing with high medical bills and the need to upgrade their heating and air conditioning system to one that provides an environment free from triggers or particulates that could aggravate Jackson’s condition. Jackson suffers from an MRSA brain infection and an extremely rare immune deficiency, which together have required numerous surgeries, lengthy hospital stays, a bone marrow transplant, and ongoing at-home treatment. Pearson Mechanical decided to step in because Trane offers a whole-house air cleaner that removes up to 99.98 percent of all the particles and allergens from the filtered air.

To get Jackson the air quality he needed, Trane donated a five-ton XL20i gas split system, variable speed furnace, evaporator coil, and a Trane CleanEffects™ whole-house air cleaner. In addition to installing the equipment, Pearson Mechanical replaced all ductwork, grills, and registers. “When Stacey Pearson, of Pearson Mechanical, told us about this family’s difficult situation, we were delighted to step up and help,” says Craig Denard, Trane’s Inside Sales Leader in Carrollton, Texas. “This boy has had a tough time of it so far, and we were in a position to make it better for him. It was a nice chance to do something for a community member in need.”

Like Trane, Pearson Mechanical has a long history of supporting community causes including its own Greg Pearson Foundation; the Fort Worth Ronald McDonald House; and the American Cancer Society, so the company was eager to chip in for Jackson.

In addition to the improved air quality, the boy’s father, Doug, is grateful that the new, highly efficient system will mean lower energy bills. “Of course, the hard part has been seeing Jackson deal with this illness, but the medical bills have added a financial dimension to the difficulty,” Doug says. “The equipment Trane and Pearson Mechanical so graciously provided will mean significantly lower energy bills, and that will really help.”
