Steve Schappert will teach you how to make
more money by helping people, saving the planet
and boosting the economy. When looking for a
real estate or Green Building expert, media
sources rely on Steve Schappert. Steve is
recognized nationally for his expertise as a
broker and contractor. As owner and founder of
Buyer's Trust, Connecticut Real Estate and
Construction and Panelized Building Systems,
Steve has over 20 years experience as one of the
countries most respected brokers and contractors.
Schappert started in business at age 12. At age
29 his contracting company was 1 of 6 contractors
in the country to receive a customer service
award by Sherwin- Williams. He has been
interviewed by Kiplinger's Financial, was
featured on the cover of Builder Architect
Magazine, received a screen call from the
Discovery Channel, Buyer's Trust was recommended
by Woman's Day Magazine, and most recently Steve

Market Leader in CT.  
Schappert to be featured speaker at national
Bios Building Technologies is Schappert's most
powerful concept ever. BIOS is Schappert's
trademarked product line of Zero and near Zero
energy homes and commercial buildings.
Schappert's first project started with a 49,000
land purchase which he turned into 1,500,000
profit. More importantly it is the very first
commercial building in the state of CT that uses
Geothermal heating and 108 solar panels.
Schappert now has projects in all stages of
building, planning and engineering worth 1.5
billion. Schappert recently partnered with a
German firm to market and ship his
environmentally friendly homes over seas. The
first order has been placed and there are plans
to ship 100 homes a year to Germany within two
years, said Schappert.

Vertical Integration
  • When a company expands its business into areas
    that are at different points of the same
    production path.
  • In microeconomics , the term vertical integration
    describes a style of ownership and control. The
    degree to which a firm owns its upstream
    suppliers and its downstream buyers determines
    how vertically integrated it is.
  • Vertically integrated companies are united
    through a hierarchy and share a common owner.
    Usually each member of the hierarchy produces a
    different product or service, and the products
    combine to satisfy a common need.
  • Vertical integration is one method of avoiding
    the hold-up problem.

Example of Vertical integration
  • One of the earliest, largest and most famous
    examples of vertical integration was the Carnegie
    Steel company.
  • The company controlled the mills, the iron and
    coal mines the ships , and the railroads.
  • Carnegie even established an institute of higher
    learning to teach the steel processes to the next

Solar Energy
Solar is Profitable
  1. If you have zero shade on property
  2. Face panels in a southern direction
  3. Qualify for 50 rebate
  • Your profit can out weigh your mortgage expense

Save Energy in the Kitchen
  1. Let dishes air dry. A dishwasher uses more
    energy to dry dishes than to wash them
  2. When purchasing a dishwasher, look for energy
    saving features such as a short wash cycle.
    Shorter washing cycles, with fewer rinses, save
    water and water-heating energy.
  3. Use your dishwasher only for full loads.
  4. Keep your refrigerator and freezer filled for
    most economical operation
  5. Adjust refrigerator settings to 37 F - 40 F and
    freezer settings to 0 F - 5 F. To check the
    temperature of your refrigerator or freezer,
    place an outdoor or refrigeration thermometer on
    the middle shelf or in the center overnight. In
    the morning, adjust the settings if necessary and
    check it again until correct.
  6. Clean refrigerator coils twice a year, more often
    if you have pets. Condenser coils are located at
    the bottom or rear of your refrigerator. If they
    are allowed to accumulate dust and dirt as much
    as 25 percent more energy is required to maintain
    proper temperature.
  7. Allow foods to partially cool before placing them
    in the refrigerator. It takes more energy to cool
    hot food. For added savings, cover foods and
    liquids. The moisture that is released by
    uncovered containers increases energy use during
    the refrigerator's defrost cycle.
  8. If you have a freezer or second refrigerator that
    is nearly empty, turn it off.
  9. Install your dishwasher away from your
    refrigerator. The dishwasher's heat and moisture
    make the refrigerator work harder.
  10. Select a refrigerator with a freezer on top. A
    side-by side unit uses up to 20 percent more
    energy. The Energy Guide label will help you
    choose the most efficient model.

Save Energy With Cooling and Heating
  • Cover pots and pans with tight-fitting covers.
    Trapped steam allows the food to cook faster.
  • Use pots and pans with flat bottoms and match pan
    size to the size of the electric surface unit. If
    a pan is too big or has a warped bottom, food
    won't cook evenly. Energy is wasted if the pan is
    too small.
  • Use a microwave or convection oven instead of a
    conventional oven whenever possible. Microwave
    ovens use about one-third and convection ovens
    about two-thirds of the energy used by
    conventional ovens to cook the same amount of
  • Turn off your electric range two to three minutes
    before the end of cooking time. Retained heat
    will finish the cooking.
  • Use portable appliances for specialized cooking
    tasks. Appliances such as toaster ovens and slow
    cookers use less energy.
  • Don't preheat the oven. It isn't necessary to
    preheat the oven except for food requiring high
    temperatures and slow cooking times.
  • Cook by time and temperature. Don't open the oven
    door to peek at cooking food. The temperature
    drops 25 F to 30 F each time the oven door is
  • Make use of the oven's leftover heat. Your oven
    retains heat for I5 to 30 minutes after it is
    turned off. Use that free heat to warm up
    desserts, rolls or freshen crackers and cookies.
  • Glass and ceramic pans retain heat better than
    metal pans. Lower the baking temperature 25 F
    when using glass and ceramic pans.
  • Use the self-cleaning oven feature only when
    really necessary. Start the self-cleaning cycle
    right after cooking while the oven is still hot.
    Less energy will be required to reach cleaning

Save Energy in the Laundry Room
  1. Wash full loads only, but don't overload. It
    takes about as much energy to wash a small load
    as it does to wash a full load. Full loads also
    save water.
  2. Wash and rinse in cold or warm water instead of
    hot whenever possible. Remember that energy is
    used to heat the water as well as to run the
  3. Set the thermostat on your water heater at 120
    F. This temperature is normally adequate for home
    use and will save a considerable amount of
    energy. If you have a dishwasher check the
    manufacturer's specifications to see if the
    temperature needs adjusting.
  4. Follow detergent directions for your particular
    washer and avoid oversudsing. Oversudsing makes
    your washer work harder, so always measure
    detergent carefully instead of estimating the
    amount to use.
  5. Dry similar items together in full loads. Sort
    clothes by thickness to avoid running an
    additional cycle for only a few slow-drying
  6. Select the correct drying time. Don't overdry
    your clothes. Besides wasting energy, overdrying
    can give clothes a harsh feel and cause
    unnecessary wrinkling and shrinkage.
  7. Dry consecutive loads. The energy used to bring
    the dryer up to operating temperature shouldn't
    be allowed to go to waste.
  8. Remove clothes from the dryer as soon as tumbling
    stops. If clothes become wrinkled from lying in
    the dryer, extra energy must be used to iron or
    dry them again.
  9. Partially line-dry bulky and heavy items.
    Articles such as rugs and bedspreads should be
    partially line-dried to avoid overworking your
  10. Clean the lint filter after each load to maintain
    full airflow and maximize drying efficiency. A
    clogged filter slows drying and wastes energy.

Save Energy With Heating and Cooling
  • Check the reliability of your thermostat. Place a
    thermometer next to the thermostat and check the
    degree readings of each. If they vary more than a
    couple of degrees, replace the thermostat.
  • Don't fiddle with thermostats. Set your
    thermostat at 68 F or lower for heating and 78
    F or higher for cooling. At bedtime set the
    thermostat at 55 F.
  • Insulate your home. Wall, ceiling, floor and
    attic insulation will keep warmth in during the
    winter and heat out during the summer.
  • Never turn your thermostat way up or way down to
    speed up the heating or cooling process. This
    will force your unit to work harder, stay on
    longer and use more energy.
  • Check all insulation and duct work for air leaks.
    Repair leaks as needed, using approved materials
    and methods.
  • Keep draperies drawn and windows closed. This
    will prevent cool air from escaping and warm air
    from seeping in through glass areas.
    Weather-strip and seal around all doors and
  • Seal off unused rooms. Turn thermostats off and
    leave vents closed in unoccupied rooms to save
  • Help your air conditioner work more efficiently.
    During the summer, try to limit the afternoon use
    of heat-producing appliances in the kitchen and
    laundry areas. Clean or replace filters
  • Don't turn your heater on if you don't need it.
    Try warming up with a sweater first. Turn the
    heater off when you're not home.
  • Turn off lights when they are not being used. For
    added savings, install compact fluorescent bulbs
    in your lighting fixtures. They use one-quarter
    of the energy that an incandescent bulb uses and
    last 10 times as long.
