You care about the environment, climate change and sustainability. You want to do your part to make existing homes more energy efficient. But all your customers want are new kitchens, better bathrooms and big additions. What can you do? How can you help homeowners learn to value what they can’t see and begin to understand their house as a system? And equally important, how can you, on a limited budget, and in piecemeal fashion, move a house systematically toward greater energy efficiency? In this panel discussion, we’ll cover the following: educating homeowners about energy efficiency and the house as a system; making a long-term plan for energy upgrades over time; working incrementally to improve a home’s energy efficiency; and insuring that the way is clear for those who follow you.
