Using Technology Systems to Help Homeowners Live a Greener Life

Using Technology Systems to Help Homeowners Live a Greener Life

A "green home" extends beyond recycling and energy efficiency; clients today want to live a greener lifestyle. Participants in this course will discuss components of "living green" and how using technology can actually help their clients live a greener life.

Additionally, attendees will discuss the ways control systems can improve durability and enhance health and comfort of a home and its occupants through HVAC, lighting and lighting control, automated shading, smart appliances, and water usage.

Participants will also discuss how a cooperative mentality among trades in the design and building process can help clients achieve their "green goals."

Learning objectives:

  • Recognize key areas of green living and how integrated home systems can create synergies
  • Recognize importance of making "being green" easy and empowering homeowners and allowing them to measure results
  • Define green benefits of control systems for HVAC, lighting and lighting control, automated shading, smart appliances, and water detection
  • Recognize impact on LEED for Homes
