Businesses cannot succeed if the value of their products or services is not effectively conveyed to consumers. The housing industry has certainly figured out how to engage consumer interest in highly visible amenities like larger homes, granite counters, and luxurious master bedroom suites. However, the skills needed to sell the invisible value associated with high-performance homes have proven to be more elusive. This webinar intends to start addressing that challenge.

In the process, he learns how inadequate much of Britain’s current housing stock is, and discovers that drastic changes are needed to make our homes more resilient, not just for the present day, but also for an increasingly uncertain future.<br /> <br /> A key element in assessing a building’s performance, and an excellent guide to overall build quality, is its airtightness. Many people understand the importance of insulation in reducing heat loss but few realise the more significant role that airtightness plays. In this documentary, Ben follows air leakage expert Paul Jennings from ALDAS as he tests different buildings to see how they perform and how they could be improved.
