Volunteers Join Team Clark Howard to Build Four Homes with Tankless Water Heaters

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. (March 29, 2012) - Rinnai America Corporation recently participated in Atlanta Habitat for Humanity’s 2012 home build to help make a difference in the lives of four new homeowners in the Atlanta community. On Feb. 4, as part of Team Clark Howard, Rinnai employees put their homebuilding skills to work.

In addition to employees donating their time, Rinnai donated a tankless water heater to each of the homes on the build. Since 2006, Rinnai has donated more than 1,250 tankless water heaters to Habitat for Humanity International.

“A lot of what we do is designed to make the home more comfortable, so helping build homes that will enrich the lives of these new homeowners is very rewarding,” said Carmella Ross, director of human resources at Rinnai. “Rinnai tankless water heaters will help these families save on monthly utility costs now and for many years to come.”

Located in the Atlanta metro area, these Atlanta Habitat homes were built from start to finish in seven days before the keys were given to the homeowners.
