For the remodeler embarking on any home renovation-particularly one where improved sustainability and energy efficiency is a goal-it's essential to first assess the current performance of the house and all its systems. This video takes viewers through a home performance audit and shows how insights into the thermal envelope, energy footprint, and structural soundness can guide the remodeler and homeowner through the first steps toward creating a greener home. An overview of high-efficiency HVAC and geothermal technologies and the role they play in a house's energy efficiency is also explored. Correlates to all National CTE Organizational Standards (including the provisions of the Perkins Act)
