Two Lifebreath 200Max HRVs
y Pennington and the gang from ABC’s hit series ‘Extreme
Makover: Home Edition’ traveled to The North Pole, Alaska to
deliver an early Christmas gift to Betsy Rogers’, a single mother
and her incredible family.
Recently, the Rogers’ family fell into hard times when Betsy’s
marriage ended, leaving the family in a difficult financial situation.
To make matters worse, Betsy’s brother suffers from kidney failure
and requires regular dialysis treatments. Despite her family’s
already strained living conditions, Betsy immediately invited her
brother and his three children to move in with her family.
Lifebreath HRVs will provide the Rogers’
family with the ultimate fresh incoming air.
The 13 member family was then crammed into a tiny home with
two bedrooms and a bathroom. The walls were separating from
each other, windows were cracked, the house had no foundation or
insulation, the front door didn’t lock and the water heater supplied
only enough heat for one warm shower. These problems created
major health threats, especially in the winter when temperatures
drop to negative sixty degrees.
A local builder, Landmark, Inc. along with hundreds of volunteers,
stepped up to take on the enormous challenge of building the
Rogers’ family a 4000sq.ft. dream home in just one week. Nutech
Brands Inc. was proud to be involved with the ventilation part of
the home and provided two Lifebreath 200MAX Heat Recovery
Ventilators, which were supplied by Frontier Plumbing Supply, and
installed by Holaday-Parks, Inc..
Jerry Mustard of Holaday-Parks, Inc. remarked “Project
management was very challenging on this project. Everything had
to be coordinated and planned out ahead of time so that things
went together quickly and correctly the first time. We made CAD
drawings to show relative locations of the ducts, walls, and floor
joists so we could find the problem areas before we even went out
to the jobsite.”
Holaday-Parks, Inc. and the volunteer crew did an excellent job
installing the two Lifebreath HRV’s during the 1-week building
frenzy. The Rogers’ family will benefit from the energy efficient
HRVs which transfer heat from the stale exhausting air to the fresh
incoming air, producing the ultimate clean air home.
