Moving Forward with Home Performance

Posted on November 21, 2016 at 6:52pm 2 Comments

There is still much uncertainty about how the new Trump administration will effect home performance businesses and the energy efficiency of U.S homes. But over the last eight years many states, local governments, and utilities have begun major initiatives that will continue to support professionals who are working to create high-performance homes.

Home Energy will continue to highlight the proven business-building…

Energy Raters and Builders Raise the Bar for Home Performance at RESNET’s Building Performance Conference

Posted on April 25, 2016 at 1:00pm 0 Comments

RESNET convened its Building Performance Conference in Scottsdale this March, a hospitable time of year in the Arizona desert. I roamed the sessions, and a few of the bars, to keep abreast of developments in home energy rating and performance. 

2016 PRIORITIES: IMPROVING QUALITY AND LOWERING COSTS OF HOME BUILDING 

The many young attendees wearing new company jerseys at this year’s conference were a sign that the energy-rating business, at least for new homes,…

Deconstructing and Moving a Historic Home

Posted on September 1, 2015 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

This spring in New Orleans I hosted “True Tales of Haunted Home Performance,” at the Home Performance Coalition National Home Performance Conference. I was joined in this true storytelling event by seven home energy pros, who contributed their real-life stories.

All the storytellers gave examples of what they had learned from the haunted houses they worked on, including John Tooley's heat pump from hell, and Chris Dorsi's haunted time capsule. We'll be reprinting these two stories in…

Tom, why did you include Mentors in the name of the group you started?  I ask because none have replied to some questions I raised a year ago.  Do you suppose my hunch about trade secrets was correct?

Tom, thanks for joining the Historic Home Group, and thanks for directing David Clark to us, as well

Hi Tom, thank you for contacting me.

I am interested. My full case study is online at http://thousandhomechallenge.com/sites/thousandhomechallenge.com/files/user-files/beeler_thc_case_study.pdf I have some refinements I will be adding soon.
Is that too long? I think it is useful to show the staged process that we used plus the context of other major improvements that happened with the EE work.

Thanks for your interest,
George
