Healthy Homes & Home Performance: The Communications Challenge
Founder & CEO
Energy Circle - Portland, ME
One of the greatest challenges the home performance industry faces is how to connect consumer demand for healthy homes with private market opportunities for home performance improvement. Success manifests when quality home performance contracting companies convert the growing demand for healthy homes to whole house jobs at scale. The healthy homes trend continues, without a foreseeable break in the wave, as homeowners remain more invested in ever in maintaining healthy environments for their families. However, how to make the connection between home performance services, such as indoor air quality tests and home health without resorting to scare tactics, and with a dearth of standardized regulatory measures. In this presentation, Energy Circle CEO and Founder Peter Troast will explain the trajectory of the healthy homes movement within home performance, and consumer trends supported by first-party statistics and market intelligence. He will unpack how contractors can bridge this communication gap with homeowners, and the foundations of a healthier home business and marketing strategy. Over the course of 60 minutes, Peter will remove the fear of uncertainty that home performance contractors face when attempting to reach their target audience, and offer compelling marketing strategy alternatives to fear mongering.
