Our residential team works to make sure that new and existing homes are healthy, safe, comfortable, durable, energy efficient and environmentally responsible. We partner with electric utilities, program implementers, regional energy efficiency organizations, building product manufacturers and more.
Program Design and Implementation
Are you interested in starting a residential energy efficiency program? We can work with you through all stages of program design, from investigative research that helps you understand what will work best, to planning, implementation, training and analysis. Customer satisfaction is one of our top priorities, so we ensure that you and your homeowners are having the best experience possible.
Rolling out a full-scale program is not always immediately feasible. We can help you develop a pilot program to examine energy efficiency on a smaller, lower-cost scale. Just like with a larger program, we work with you to get the pilot off the ground and running and then help you evaluate it and determine next steps.
Trainings and Workshops
We have developed hundreds of customized trainings for contractors, realtors, utility staff and more that blend classroom instruction with first-hand working knowledge. Our trainings provide technical expertise and help you better understand your customers. Some of our popular trainings include:
- Principles of building science
- HVAC fundamentals
- Building performance tools (testing equipment, blower doors, duct blasters, etc.)
Education and Process Development
In addition to trainings, we can work with you to develop other educational support materials that will make your processes easier. For example, we are able to design installation and best practice guides and checklists, as well as code books that simplify steps and help you succeed the first time.
