The Contractors Guide to the Smart Home

The buzz around the concept of a “smart home” has been growing for years, but most homeowners have only recently started incorporating smart products into their homes. While these products and devices may seem gimmicky—with their smartphone-based app interfaces and goofy names —many of them can actually be complementary to existing home performance, HVAC, or even solar portfolios. Smart home products may provide a tangible perspective into the often-unseen work done to improve home performance by providing insight and/or control of energy-using elements. This could become the “cherry on the sundae” for contractors looking to ensure satisfied, repeat, and referral-ready customers. In some cases, the products may even help contractors do their job better.
