Modern Home Builder 2018 - Volume 6, Issue 2 - 71
Insight Homes continues to keep its finger on the pulse of green
technologies. Soon, the company will start implementing Inverter
HVAC systems, which are very much different from regular HVAC
systems, Elliott says.
Currently, Insight Homes employs a modulating furnace. In
a typical system, he explains, will start a fire and blow a hot
fan over it when your home drops below the set temperature.
"When that temperature gets to a certain point, it shuts off," he
continues. "From that second the temperature starts dropping

FILLING THE GAPS
Elliott joined Insight Homes in 2014 and comes from an entrepreneurial background, like Lisle. "I have never worked for a company
before that was not my own company," he recalls.
After starting a bicycle business at the age of 12, "I graduated to
other businesses, sold those and started new businesses," he recalls,
adding that he has known Lisle for many years.
"He said, 'I've seen what you've done with everything you've
touched, and my business needs day-to-day management,'" Elliott
recalls. "I came along to fill in the gaps for things that were needed
for the company to grow." In the last year, he notes, Insight Homes
expanded outside of its niche of 2,000-square-foot homes in the
$300,000 price range. "We're now applying our technology to
million-dollar houses and larger houses," he says.
