Habitat for Humanity affiliates, the grass roots organizations that make it all happen, raise money locally and work with local volunteers to build simple, decent homes for qualified buyers at no interest and no profit. Mortgage payments go back into the building fund. Since 1994, The U.S. Department of Energy’s Building America program has been working with HFHI and local Habitat affiliates who want to build more energy efficient homes. Technical assistance helps affiliates make smarter choices and spend limited resources more wisely. But the real winners are the home owners who reap year after year in utility savings – often with improved durability, indoor air quality, and comfort. RESNET is a professional organization of home energy raters and service providers that work with builders, like Habitat affiliates, throughout the country to plan and certify energy efficient construction. RESNET members produce Home Energy Ratings, help builders reach energy efficiency goals (like Energy Star), and work with the project managers to ensue that “as built” matches “as specified.” Building America is proud to introduce a partnership between RESNET’s network of professionals and with Habitat’s network of affiliates. Working together, RESNET volunteers and Habitat can deliver homes that use at least 15% less energy and provide a healthy, comfortable environment that will last for generations. www.buildingamerica.gov www.habitat.org Partnership Organizations www.buildingamerica.gov www.natresnet.org Project Examples Habitat is building energy-efficient, healthy and sustainable houses in communities around the world. More than a decade of Energy Star building. Since 1995 Habitat for Humanity International has partnered with the Florida Solar Energy Center and the Department of Energy’s Building America program to produce thousands of houses that are energy-efficient, durable and have healthy indoor air quality. Without funding, support and professional guidance from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, much of this work would not have been possible.:  Project Examples Habitat is building energy-efficient, healthy and sustainable houses in communities around the world.

Building America works on numerous projects with local Habitat affiliates nationwide to improve the energy efficiency, comfort, durability and indoor air quality of new housing built with Habitat homeowners. One such recent project involving the Lakeland Habitat for Humanity affiliate of Florida reveals significant utility savings for homeowners living in high performance housing.

Technical assistance helps affiliates make smarter choices and spend limited resources more wisely. RESNET volunteers have joined the effort by providing one or more pro-bono home energy ratings to interested Habitat affiliates. Read about the win-win benefits for both RESNET volunteers and Habitat affiliates here.(xx add link) Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity (COHFH) Oklahoma Gas and Electric (OG&E), Positive Energy Home Program™ provides pro-bono home energy ratings and tax credit calculations to COHFH.

COHFH is allowed to sell its tax credit at the rate of eighty cents on the dollar generating $3,200 to offset the cost of energy efficiency improvements including: www.buildingamerica.gov Partnership Organizations Need COHFH photo here Steve Sullivan, Coordinator Builder & Developer Programs OG&E - Electric Services Phone 405-553-3393 sullivsr@oge.com Heating and Cooling System Geothermal Heat Pump - Tranquility 20 Systems Donated By Climatemaster (Affiliate Pays For Installation And Drilling) Room-by-room Manual J Calculation Blower Door Infiltration Testing To Ensure Estimated Natural Infiltration Rate Of 0.35 Air Changes Per Hour Or Less Ducts Sealed With Mastic And Tested To Ensure Leakage </= 5 Cfm Per 100 Square Feet Of Conditioned Space Enclosure 2x4 Frame construction, slab on grade with R-5 perimeter insulation Spray foam insulation in Wall (~R-13) with R-4 exterior rigid insulation Spray foam insulation at Roof deck (~R-19) in unvented attic Low-E, double pane, vinyl frame windows (SHGC=/< 0.4 U-Value =/0.35) Lighting – 100% Compact Fluorescent Bulbs HERS Index ranges from 56-58 (85 or less required to meet Energy Star) Rater Seal for posting on the RESNET web site and for your use: :  Rater Seal for posting on the RESNET web site and for your use: LINKS:  LINKS RESNET Rater Volunteers http://www.resnet.us/rater/partnership/default.htm Habitat Fact Sheet http://www.habitat.org/how/factsheet.aspx Habitat for Humanity International Page http://www.habitat.org/env/default.aspx BA resources for Habitat affiliates http://www.baihp.org/habitat/Building_America_Habitat_Partnership.pdf Building America Activities with Habitat http://www.baihp.org/partners/BuilderPartners/hfh.htm
