LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, Ohio, Oct. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Earthwise Group, LLC, a national network of locally owned, independent manufacturers of windows and doors, recently designed a custom window solution to renovate a dilapidated 988 sq. ft. home in Evansville, Indiana, and turn it into a move-in-ready residence for a low-income buyer. The home was part of a project initiated by Community One, an organization that is helping to address the need for safe, affordable housing in Evansville and surrounding communities. Community One selected Earthwise energy-efficient windows that would also significantly increase the curb appeal of the home.
"The Earthwise Group was pleased to work with Community One to provide an attractive window solution that will also help to reduce the home's utility costs by increasing its energy-efficiency," said Mark Davis, executive director of the Earthwise Group. "Our Earthwise windows provided a fresh new look for the renovated home and will help the homeowners save on their energy bills by reducing heat gain in the summer and heat loss in the winter."
Community One selected Earthwise single hung and horizontal sliding windows for the home. The windows were designed to be durable and virtually maintenance free. With routine care and cleaning, the homeowners can keep their windows looking new for years to come. After renovations were completed, the house was listed for sale for buyers with incomes at or below 80 percent of the area median income.
The Earthwise windows used on the home meet the highest energy standards in the industry, including those set by ENERGY STAR, the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) and The American Architectural Manufacturing Association (AAMA).
The organization's windows and doors also carry the Made in USA Certified® seal.
Currently, there are 15 Earthwise manufacturing facilities, with distribution covering the majority of the eastern half of the United States.
