BOSTON— Dwellin Inc., founded by Boston entrepreneur Santhana Krishnan, announced the first sustainable home mobile app to help U.S. homeowners tackle and reduce home maintenance costs, organize service pros, and make every home more environmentally sustainable.
With people spending more time at home as a result of the pandemic, homeowners are looking for ways to control costs and preserve more of the environment for future generations, Dwellin said in a statement.
Dwellin™ is the free, easy-to-use mobile app that helps U.S. home, apartment, condo, and townhouse owners estimate and reduce annual home maintenance costs and their home’s carbon footprint: the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted into the Earth’s atmosphere each year. Carbon emissions are one of the driving factors behind the global climate crisis, and contribute to rising temperatures and severe weather.
“EV manufacturers, governments, and businesses are all working toward net-zero carbon emissions to slow the global climate crisis,” said Krishnan, CEO of Dwellin Inc. “It’s time for homes to do their part. On Earth Day 2022, we’re helping U.S. homeowners live more sustainably with Dwellin, the easy-to-use, mobile app that provides a 360-degree view of home maintenance costs and carbon footprint, with steps homeowners can take to reduce both.”
