©2010

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). Viewable/printable discussion questions are available online. A Shopware Production. A part of the series Green-ovating: Home Renovations for a Sustainable World. (40 minutes)
