ASHLAND CITY, Tenn. - A.O. Smith Water Products Co. announced that it will be donating high-efficiency water heaters to the newest Habitat for Humanity International initiative, a weatherization program intended to improve low-income households.

Habitat for Humanity, in conjunction with Exelon Corp., launched a pilot program aimed at weatherizing 70 homes, helping homeowners reduce their energy use and utility bills. Along with installing A.O. Smith water heaters in some of the homes, other improvements include weather stripping, caulking, showerhead replacements, attic insulation, and other energy-saving projects.

“A.O. Smith is excited to be donating to this cause,” said David Chisolm, A.O. Smith brand manager. “Not only are our water heaters perfect for this program, but we truly value community service and love to see it paired with energy efficiency.”

Habitat for Humanity intends for the initial program, which will serve homes in northern Illinois, southeastern Pennsylvania, and Texas, to serve as a model for future programs in other cities, beginning in 2010.

A.O. Smith Water Products Co. is a leading manufacturer and marketer of residential and commercial water heaters and hydronic boilers. For more information, visit www.hotwater.com.
