Curb the #1 Energy Loss in Homes

By focusing on energy efficiency, you can reduce greenhouse gas emissions (carbon dioxide, sulfer dioxide, and nitrogen oxides) by thousands of pounds per year. Great strides have been made in insulating walls, window quality, and furnace efficiency. But, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, air duct leakage is the #1 home energy loss.

Aeroseal ductsAeroseal® manufactures an aerosol sealant that is sprayed into your ductwork to seal leaks from the inside. Safe and nontoxic, Aeroseal has actually been shown to enhance indoor air quality. Improved delivery of conditioned air means rooms that were hard to keep warm in the winter/cool in the summer are usually more comfortable while saving you money every month on your utility bills.

According to Aeroseal, “On average, 30 cents of every $1 you spend on heating and cooling your home or building disappears into thin air due to duct leaks.” With more of the air you paid to heat or cool reaching the registers, you may find yourself actually lowering the thermostat.

Another benefit can be noise reduction—with the furnace and/or air conditioner running less.

Getting the Most out of Your Promotional Licenses

Getting the Most out of Your Promotional Licenses

“That was a neat couple,” you think to yourself, watching those prospective buyers driving off. You hammer out the last few keystrokes of your first email follow-up/thank you, playing over in your mind their comments about the different builders’ model homes they had visited. What would they remember about you? About your home? Were you noteworthy?

Literally!

With a Promotional License from Design Basics, you receive the rendered elevation and floorplans to use as you see fit in your marketing and promotional efforts. Available for every plan, Promotional Licenses are just $25 each (or FREE, upon request when ordering plans directly from Design Basics).  Printing up notecards using the front elevation artwork and writing your personal message is decidedly old-school, yet tremendously impactful! Handwritten notes are rare (someone actually took the time to write it), and repeating back a few key points shows you were listening to these prospects’ needs and desires. The rendering…your message…in the format of a handwritten note sent through the mail…that’s one way to stand above everyone else’s email follow ups!

But don’t limit using Promotional License home plan artwork to just your model home. For $200 you could add eight new home plans to your plan portfolio and attract a wider audience of buyers. And don’t limit your use of Promotional License home plan artwork to just note cards. Those renderings are perfect for brochures, website, social media and blog posts, yard signs, and MLS listings.

Great Design Matters!
