Episode 185 - A Certification that Matters with Josh Christian of HTA

On this week's episode of HomeTech: We are joined by Josh Christian, Director of Certification at the Home Technology Association.  The HTA is a new initiative aimed at helping homeowners, as well as design and building professionals, find a qualified and vetted home technology firm for their project.
