Home buyers today know they have options for lower utility costs, healthier indoor air quality and better home comfort. It makes sense that Home Inspectors are familiar with energy efficiency factors and system improvements in these categories.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 30, 2014
Recently recognized by the Illinois Division of Real Estate, Priority Energy will now offer energy efficiency training developed specifically for home inspectors. Training will include topics such as calculating total system efficiency, water and moisture management, ventilation requirements, indoor air quality and more. Attendees will earn state-approved Continuing Education (CE) credits for each session.
Priority Energy has taught RESNET and BPI certification classes and RESNET and BPI-specific continuing education programs for over 5 years. "Home buyers today know they have options for lower utility costs, healthier indoor air quality and better home comfort. It makes sense that home inspectors become more knowledgeable in energy efficiency calculations and system improvements in these categories. There are also new, high performance equipment that inspectors may see in homes that they should be familiar with," said Robert Schildgen, owner of Priority Energy.
The first home inspector training class will be held on October 31, 2014 at Priority Energy's offices in Park Ridge, IL. The session, "Don't Be Afraid of Duct Work; How to Calculate Total System Efficiency" is eligible for 6 CE credits. Go to priorityenergy.com for more details.
