Elvira and her family had lived for years in a converted garage apartment within earshot of the freeway. It was loud, smoggy and, during the summer, terribly uncomfortable without air conditioning.
“We’ve lived for years without air conditioning and have gotten used to being hot,” she said. “We know what it’s like to be uncomfortable and just put up with it because we had no choice.”
Soon after moving into their new Habitat for Humanity home in the Los Angeles community of Inglewood, they were selected to receive one of more than 500 ductless home comfort systems that Carrier donated to Habitat.
Today, they’re enjoying the comfort associated with an efficient ductless home comfort system in their second-floor living space.
“Before, we spent all of our time downstairs because it just got too hot upstairs during the day and now we’re able to eat up here and enjoy our living room all year round,” she said. “It’s a blessing for our family and we’re so thankful for this opportunity.”
Of the more than 500 systems donated to Habitat, more than 150 were distributed to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles for families like Elvira’s.
“Thank you to Habitat and Carrier for helping us achieve this wonderful dream,” she said.
Carrier has partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles for the past several years by providing both ductless and conventional ducted home comfort systems for homes across the city.
“We are so grateful to have companies like Carrier who support our families with product donations like this that help us focus our resources on supporting more families,” said Jo-An Turman, spokeswoman for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles. “To see the relationship blossom and grow is a sign of the value Carrier places in the work we do and the families we support.”
