About Us

Ferguson Heating and Air Conditioning Company, a fourth generation family-owned business, has specialized in the design, sale, installation, service and maintenance of heating, air conditioning, and home comfort systems since 1946.

In 1946, George D. Ferguson and his son J. D. established the company, originally named George D. Ferguson & Sons. In the beginning, the company focused on manufacturing sheet metal products which were shipped throughout the Southeast region. As time continued on, they also started selling and installing heating systems. A landmark moment for the company was when they installed their first air conditioning system in 1958. This installation was the beginning of a new era for the company.

70 years later, Ferguson Heating and Air Conditioning Company continues to uphold our original principles of honesty, integrity, excellence in design and installation, and a good value for the customer’s money. Ferguson Heating and Air Conditioning Company has continuously met customers’ needs by implementing quality long lasting systems. Commonly, our installed systems have remained in operation for 30-35 years.
