The Sponsors

These generous sponsors support the mission of Habitat X through technical support and financial donations. They have each shown an ability and willingness to work collaboratively with energy and housing professionals — we encourage you to contact them, introduce yourself, and support them in any way you can.


Retrotec has been a solid supporter of Habitat X for years now. Based in Everson, Washington, their equipment, software, and test procedures are used in over 60 countries and in the most demanding applications for houses, multi-family buildings, high rise towers and high technology installations. Their product lines include precision testing equipment: digital gauges, blower doors, duct testers, flow hoods, and software.

Retrotec has consistently brought the most advanced tools to market and has pushed the industry forward. Their most recent success is the DM32 gauge, the world’s first wireless touch-screen smart gauge. When coupled with the rCloud data storage system, users can now perform building diagnostics with an unprecedented level of ease, precision, and security.

2018 Gold Sponsor


We’re happy to welcome Foobot as a returning sponsor in 2018. As purveyors of one of the most promising new devices for assessing and managing indoor air quality, the makers of Foobot have consistently shown both the technical prowess to design accurate and relevant equipment, AND a deep understanding of the human interface. With our current Habitat X initiative on connected devices, the makers of Foobot will have an important place at the table as we provide guidance for the home-performance Internet of Things.

See a recent third-party research report that demonstrates how well Foobot senses airborne pollutants, creating good opportunities for protecting human health in the home.

Or view a slide deck summarizing research at Lawrence Berkeley Lab confirming the ability of monitors like Foobot to accurately detect harmful aerosols and volatile organic compounds in the home.
