A Power Hour session at the National Green Building Conference & Expo entitled “How Builders & ESCs Create Value Through Green Home Technology” will look at how builders and remodelers can work with electronic systems contractors to create value through effective use of home technology.
The session is on Monday, May 2, from 5:00-6:00 p.m. at the Salt Palace in Salt Lake City, where the conference is taking place.
Working with a certified electronic systems contractor (ESC) will ensure that builders and remodelers are offering the right product mix at the right price point.
Green home technology offers consumers a wide range of lifestyle products to suit their personal desires, while at the same time providing the assurance that their choices are healthy for the environment and will have a cost-effective impact on their household maintenance expenses.
Erdmann, an experienced electronic systems contractor, will explain how builders and remodelers can use the latest trends in green home technology to help clients choose the right product mix. He will also outline the benefits that come from builder and ESC partnerships.
Adams and Magleby will explain what their company does with the home structure and the building envelope — as well as the HVAC system, doors and windows, insulation and the thermal envelope.
Erdmann will emphasize technologies for entertainment control, as well as energy management — such as dashboards that enable customers to know how much energy they are using. He will also look at the market for retrofits and how remodelers can take advantage of new technologies.
This session is co-sponsored by NAHB’s Home Technology Alliance (HTA), a partnership supported its by founding sponsor, the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association.
The HTA was created to educate builders and remodelers about the myriad benefits of installed home technology, and to help foster mutually beneficial and lasting relationships between these design and build professionals and ESCs.
