Habitat for Humanity in Whatcom County

Building Energy Efficiency at Habitat

Habitat for Humanity in Whatcom County envisions a home-building process that maintains Habitat’s “Simple, Safe, Decent, Affordable” standards and that also allows for the introduction of new materials and designs. Throughout this fiscal year we’ve continued to develop our “net-zero-ready” homebuilding energy plan by using appropriate technology whenever possible, including solar panels, passive insulation, triple-pane windows, LED lighting, air-to-air heat exchange systems, and Energy Star appliances. On average, our homes cost less than $20 per month to heat.
