certified energy auditorEnergy Audit Diagnostics Course

$295 | Hours: 20 | Type: Distance | Enroll

Energy auditors provide a valuable service to homeowners across the United States and Canada. These professionals inspect homes and make recommendations to homeowners on ways to improve the energy efficiency of that home. Auditors assess the condition of a home's thermal envelope, test for air leaks, check for gaps in insulation and advise homeowners on which improvements will pay off over time. This profession is a high growth area due to government funding, and PHII's training will help you get in on the ground floor.

This Energy Audit Diagnostics Course follows national guidelines established by the U.S. Department of Energy to meet the weatherization needs of each state. You will also learn infrared camera usage, blower door testing, duct leak testing, thermodynamics, furnace combustion appliance testing, and much more! The course addresses the systems inside the home, including how energy is used and concrete recommendations homeowners can use to reduce their energy costs.
