Energy Audit Workshop

Energy Audit Workshop
March 20, 2010

What is an energy audit anyway? We invite you to join us in an audit of a super-insulated timber frame structure built in 2008. This is a thorough analysis of the energy efficiency of the structure utilizing the 'house as a system' approach where not only the efficiency and comfort are considered, but also building durability and occupant safety issues. We'll spend an hour in the classroom discussing the process and tools used and then go out into the field to actually conduct an audit. We'll re-group in the classroom at the end of the day to review our findings. Students will receive a copy of the auditors report with suggestions of how to improve the efficiency of the home.

Students will walk away from this class with a thorough understanding of what to expect from an energy audit and why it might be conducted, familiarity with the tools used, and an understanding of how to improve the efficiency of a home.

This class will be taught by guest instructor, Aaron Despres. He has been an inspector with Up-Country Building Inspectors, inc since 2007. In addition to providing residential energy auditing and consulting services, he inspects residential and commercial buildings. Aaron is a native of Harpswell, Maine and holds a Masters degree in Geology. * Certified as Building Analyst Professional by Building Performance Institute, #4380 * ASHI Associate, # 248862 * Member of MeCHIPS
