Building on a two-decade legacy of support for Habitat for Humanity, Carrier will once again participate in Habitat for Humanity’s Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project. Each year, hundreds of volunteers and future homeowners help build a housing community alongside the former president and Mrs. Carter. This year, the Carter Work Project is being held Oct. 6-11 and will construct 21 affordable homes in the north Nashville neighborhood of Park Preserve. Carrier, a provider of high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of Carrier, a global provider of innovative HVAC, refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies. Carrier is a unit of United Technologies Corp.
To support the project, Carrier will donate an Infinity 16 heat pump system to each Carter Work Project Home, which will provide energy-efficient cooling and heating. The system will be paired with an Infinity control, allowing for even greater potential energy savings with features like advanced smart setback, Touch-N-Go program adjustments, and energy use tracking.
“We’ve been working with Habitat for Humanity for more than two decades, and we’re pleased to continue that legacy of support by providing home comfort systems for the Carter Work Project again this year,” said Matthew Pine, president, Residential HVAC, Carrier. “Habitat for Humanity constantly strives to build their homes to be as energy efficient as possible, and we’re proud to assist them in this pursuit by providing our ultra-efficient Infinity equipment.”
“Habitat is fortunate to have the support of partners like Carrier, who provide much-needed resources for projects of this scale,” said Julie Davis, vice president for corporate and cause marketing, Habitat for Humanity. “The combined efforts of the volunteers, the homeowners and program partners mean that this year’s Carter Work Project will help 21 Nashville households build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.”
This is Carrier’s second consecutive year supporting the Carter Work Project. In 2018, it provided heating and cooling systems for the neighborhood that was constructed in St. Joseph County, Indiana. For the first time, four of those homes achieved the classification of net zero energy using Infinity heat pumps with Greenspeed intelligence, meaning they produce as much renewable energy as they consume over the course of a year. Carrier also donated a mix of Infinity geothermal, ductless system and ducted split systems.
