As I sit here typing I am for the in a long time optimistic about our industry. The crash and burn of PACE and subsequently Homestar left many of us wondering if our industry would ever make it to prime time.
I have new found optimism. I am actually excited. In the last month I have seen the following.
Vice President Biden and the news conference regarding Home Score. Agree with it or not it got press. It also got all of us thinking.
A version of Homestar is being implemented in my local area.
I then received an Email this week from my Insurance Agent (State Farm) as part of a monthly campaign that the company produces. Cut costs and waste with an Energy Audit was part of the email.
Today on the way to drop my kids off school I listened to an ad from Home Depot. It was for CO monitors and why brand X was the way to go. Something about safety for your loved ones and how you should care. I thought what about testing for this? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a commercial like this tied into our industry and how we test and have mitigation solutions for CO
problems in the home.
I the open my email and see RESNET have entered into an agreement with Home Depot.
Wow that is allot of action in less than a four week period.
Now if the phone would ring a little more often I would be really excited
