Shipshape, a company on a mission to make homes smart enough to take care of themselves so that we can live in a world where every home is safe, reliable and efficient, today announced its admission into The Basement Health Association (“BHA”).
Shipshape uses smart home hardware sensors, data analytics and software to operate a first-of-its-kind, proprietary smart home predictive maintenance platform that offers solutions to homeowners to reduce the costs of home maintenance and operations. While Shipshape is a complete home management platform, one of their core use cases is monitoring solutions for basements and crawl spaces. Shipshape and The BHA are value aligned partners as the BHA exists to educate the general public about basement and building health, believing that all of the industries industries that support the home can work together for the benefit of the consumer.
“We see great alignment between Shipshape and The Basement Health Association. We’re excited to work alongside other value-aligned partners from across the home support ecosystem that recognize that the importance of fixing America’s basements and crawl spaces is beyond maintenance, but also impacts occupant health and energy efficiency.” said Adam Morrisey, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Shipshape.
Shipshape recently partnered with the research and development team from Southern Company, Alabama Power’s parent company, as well as Alabama Power’s Smart Neighborhoods team, on weatherization projects to fix basements and crawl spaces in the state of Alabama. The results showed the the importance of controlling the humidity levels in basements and crawl spaces and demonstrated that the energy impact of weatherization projects can be profound. According to a report published by Shipshape, weatherizing 26 million crawl spaces in the United States would reduce carbon emissions by approximately 0.85% or over 17 million tons of carbon each year.
“Poorly designed basements and crawl spaces are a problem nationwide, but, unfortunately, these problems are ten times worse among low-income and minority populations,” said Alexander Linn, Founder and CEO of Shipshape. “Now that modern building science has acknowledged this problem, we have a moral imperative to help homeowners avoid the long-term health consequences, financial damage and wasted energy that can result from a part of their home that’s out of sight and out of mind.”
By joining the BHA, Shipshape is standing by their commitment to use technology to build a better world.
