OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. – ClimateMaster celebrated the completion and dedication of Central Oklahoma’s Habitat for Humanity’s 400th home featuring a geothermal heat pump driven heating and cooling system.
The home, located in the organization’s Faith Landing development in Southwest Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, represents an ongoing collaborative commitment between ClimateMaster and Habitat for Humanity to construct all homes in the region with geothermal heating and cooling systems. This provides the new homeowners with both an environmentally and economically sustainable residence.
According to Felton, since 2006, all 400 geothermal homes constructed by the organization use geothermal heat pumps donated by ClimateMaster. System design, installation, testing and startup services have been provided at cost by contractor ComfortWorks and by geothermal driller B&H Construction.
The 400 geothermal homes built to date, ranging in size from 1,050 to 1,400 square feet, each feature a 2 ton geothermal heat pump system from ClimateMaster fed by a single 400-foot deep borehole. Additional features include sprayed-in foam insulation and high-efficiency windows that lessen the burden on HVAC load and further minimize costs and environmental impact.
