Building a Business on Shades and Energy with Smart PNW


We’re coming up on winter and with heating bills rising across the U.S., a lot more attention has been placed on the monetary value of warmth and comfort in a home.

Nowadays a healthier, happier home is also a more efficient and therefore less expensive one.

There are a few tried and true methods for achieving this. Insulation is and will always be a major factor, but we’re here today to talk about insulation of a different variety.

Since beginning with Smart PNW, James Roddy has been showing households out in the Pacific Northwest just how much of an impact motorized window treatments can have in the home. It always starts with an energy audit, but the goal is safe, comfortable living come fall and winter.

In this episode of the podcast, Roddy, accompanied by DesignWell Editor Nick Boever will discuss:

  • How Smart PNW got started in the industry delivering energy audits
  • How window treatments play into improving home efficiencies
  • What automation can do to improve the experience of these elements
  • How professionals can start delivering energy audit services of their own
