Why Home Efficiency Consulting and Energy Efficiency Certification?
The Right Team: The Home Efficiency curriculum has been developed by professionals that have taken the best of a diverse range of Energy Auditing and ‘Green’ training programs. Our team consists of leading Architects and Certified Energy Auditors from Building Performance Institute (BPI) and Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET), plus seasoned Home Inspectors, Mechanical Engineers, MBAs, PHDs, and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED AP) Accredited Professionals. The focus is on Return on Investment to reduce utility costs and increase the health of homes across the country.
The Right Time: At the end of 2010 the Deregulation of certain Utility Companies will increase the cost of energy in America for property owners by 15% to 25%...or more. This will have a massive impact on household budgets. Highly cost-effective tactics are available now to reduce energy consumption. The Home Efficiency training program not only covers the implementation of over 100 tactics but also comes with the GREENandSAVE DeCoder which clearly and succinctly highlights all of the new Tax Credits afforded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
The Right Tools: You get the Curriculum and the Software Reporting Tool that focuses on Return on Investment. Plus the online reporting tools automatically generate the key indexes like the Home utility Trend (HUT) Score, Home Heating Index, Base Load Electric, Base Water consumption. The user-friendly online tools let consultant deliver high-impact graphic reports without doing the math. These reports are the drivers that give homeowners the ability to easily see their savings potential and start to ‘Take Action’.
The Right Cost: The cost of the Home Efficiency Consulting (HEC) training is less than half of the cost of the typical BPI and RESNET training. Plus, HEC enhances the BPI and RESNET training, and it has been designed so that the tools necessary to execute a Home Efficiency Checkup are under $200 rather than over $5,000 for blower doors or infrared camera equipment. You can make the consulting a full or part time career, or simply learn how to optimize your home and the homes of your friends and family. The training is comparable in the cost of just a single Energy Audit.
According to Forbes Magazine the 'GREEN' economy could soon become the nation's fastest-growing job segment, accounting for roughly 10% of new jobs over the next 20 years. The GREENandSAVE Eco Academy is a cutting edge training program designed to give individuals all the necessary tools to have a rewarding career in this growing industry as a Home Efficiency Consultant.
