Do you understand the relationship between all the systems in the house and its effect on occupant health, safety and comfort, energy efficiency and durability? With this training you will learn how various systems interact, and how a flaw in one area can compromise the performance in another system. You don’t fix the symptoms without knowing the problems' root causes. Our training teaches you the fundamentals of home performance evaluation, home performance assessments and more.
Online course access with over 20 hours of instructor-led streaming video. The instructor will walk you through the concepts of performing an energy audit. This is the equivalent of taking our nationally certified course in the comfort of your own home.
A 90-minute Field Training DVD – This video takes you through an existing home energy audit from start to finish. It includes worst case combustion safety testing of furnaces, boilers and water heaters, blower door setup and air leakage testing, advance pressure diagnostics, indoor air quality and durability inspections and much more.
A Data Collection Form – this form follows along the video and details step-by-step how to set up and perform each diagnostic test, space to record appropriate observations, and guidance on necessary calculations.
Residential Energy Textbook – The best book available on home energy conservation. This book introduces readers to a home's energy-related components and explains all the important possibilities for energy conservation. Readers will learn that effective energy conservation requires a whole-house approach that addresses the biggest energy wasters first.
Exam Simulator – Our practice exams are designed to prepare you to pass the BPI Building Analyst and RESNET exam.
