Home Edition Description -minus all the capitalized words: Florida Family Receives A. O. Smith Solar Unit for New Eco-friendly Home

Ashland City, Tenn. – A. O. Smith Water Products Company (www.hotwater.com), the leading manufacturer and marketer of residential and commercial water heaters, has donated a 120-gallon solar storage tank to the Hurston family of Cocoa Beach, Fla., project of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.

“Having recently contributed to the local efforts of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition for The Nashville Build, A. O. Smith was pleased to be a part of the Cocoa Beach project and to make a difference for the Hurston family and their new home,” says David Chisolm, brand manager for A. O. Smith Water Products. “As a company that values philanthropic involvement and charitable giving, we enjoy giving back to the communities we serve.”

The Hurston family’s previous home and belongings were destroyed two years ago due to a burst water pipe while they were away on a charitable relief effort. Thanks to Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and generous companies like A. O. Smith, the family will now enjoy a 3,400-square-foot, eco-friendly home.

Some of the home’s various green innovations include solar hot water, solar electric, energy-saving insulation, LED lights, and a high-efficiency heating and air conditioning unit, among others. The 120-gallon solar storage tank donated by A. O. Smith will provide efficient water storage for all of the Hurston family’s essential water heating needs.

The show aired Feb. 13 on ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and the Hurston family is currently enjoying their brand new home. For more information on A. O. Smith Water Products Company, visit www.hotwater.com.
