Wounded Marine receives energy efficient home with geothermal heating and cooling
ClimateMaster long has believed in giving back to communities. That’s why the Oklahoma-based company has contributed scores of its high-efficiency heat pumps to various groups and projects.
One of the latest recipients is the Gary Sinise Foundation, which recently used the company’s heating and cooling system in a home it constructed in Duluth, Minn., for a wounded Marine.
Two local companies, ThermLink LLC and Summit Mechanical, donated a significant portion of the home’s heating and cooling system, installing a ClimateMaster Tranquility Medium Temperature geothermal heat pump unit. In addition to heating and cooling, the heat pump hydronic system can provide the home with hot and chilled water.
The home’s occupants are Mark and Heather Litynski. Mark was injured in 2010 when he stepped on an IED while on patrol in Afghanistan. He lost both legs just above the knees and his left arm just above his elbow as a result of the explosion and now walks on prosthetic legs or uses a wheelchair.
