The 4-hour course will give an overview of the major residential energy efficiency and weatherization programs available in the United States named by the US government's HOMESTAR program. HOMESTAR is a federal weatherization program intended to create green jobs, reduce energy consumption, and reduce carbon emissions.
Participants will learn about the Building Performance Institute (BPI) and the Residential Energy Service Network's (RESNET) Home Energy Rating System (HERS). Finally, course participants will learn the major sources of energy loss, discomfort, and poor indoor air quality that are common in a majority of homes across the United States.
