Habitat for Humanity® has been a force for good in the world for decades. Over the years they’ve provided hundreds of thousands of families in need with affordable homes. We are proud to partner with Habitat for Humanity® and couldn’t think of a better way to help than ensuring a new home for a Utah family is zero-net.
A zero-net building produces as much or more of the energy than it consumes through renewable means, meaning the building’s carbon footprint is, well, zero. As buildings are responsible for 40 percent of energy consumed in the United States, (source) the environmental impact of this is a given. The cherry on top is this means big savings on the energy bill. That’s something anybody would love, let alone a family in need of a home from Habitat for Humanity®.
For this particular house, we installed a NTI GF200 Combi-Furnace, triple pane windows, exterior foam insulation and air sealant AeroBarrier, as well as donated money that was used towards supplies and energy-efficient products. People across our team pitched in, donating their time to help build, paint and install equipment during the construction of the home.
But this is just the start. Our partnership means we’ll help Habitat for Humanity® build more zero-net homes throughout our state. Helping both the world around us, and the people we love who live in it.
