Did you ever think being more comfortable, could be saving the planet?

Well, it’s possible. Yes, no kidding!

Andy Frank (@AndyJFrank) is Founder & President of Sealed, a climate-tech company that finances home weatherization, insulation, and heat pumps using the dollars homeowners SAVE, by using their service.

We dive deep into…

  • Who the hell is Amory Lovins (one of the most fascinating human alive)?
  • How does Sealed make a super old, 125-year-old home more efficient?
  • What’s Sealed’s GAF (greedy AF) vs LAF (lazy AF) philosophy? 

Sealed is re-writing the playbook on climate change. They’re helping you help the planet, all from never leaving your house.

But Sealed is leaving the house! They’re already in 7 states & expanding fast to the rest of the US (go to sealed.com and plug in your zip code to see if they’re in your area)!

If you’re intrigued, keep listening & you’ll find out more 🙂 Enjoy & take care!
