Learn How to do an Energy Audit on Your Home

Energy Audit Workshop
Saturday March 20, 2012

This is your last chance to sign up for this great workshop where we actually conduct an energy audit with a professional auditor.

There are many licenses and new terms being used to describe a home that is well insulated and uses a small amount of fuel to heat and or cool it and new codes being introduced to help create a benchmark for home construction. Shelter Institute has been teaching Energy Efficient home building since 1974 long before these terms and codes were developed but we thought it would be interesting to see how one of our super-insulated timber frame kits does under the scrutiny of a home energy audit and we thought it would helpful for the lay person to see what is involved in an official energy audit. We contacted Aaron Despres and invited him in to conduct an energy audit on a nearby timber frame with SIPS. 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. He is certified as Building Analyst Professional by Building Performance Institute, #4380 * ASHI Associate, # 248862 * Member of MeCHIPS

Come spend the day with us on Saturday, March 20 and see what an official Energy Audit entails and if it is something you need to do to your own home. Call or visit our web site to register.

Registration for the workshop will close on Wednesday March 17th (Happy St. Patrick's Day!)
