As energy prices have climbed to record levels over the past decade, homeowners have watched their utility bills increase steadily and consistently.
With the exorbitant costs of switching to alternative energy sources such as solar or geothermal putting these solutions out of reach for most, homeowners have looked toward increasing their home’s energy efficiency in order to take control of their energy expenses.
Indeed, many homeowners will opt to replace their windows as a means to save energy, which is far down on the list of possible upgrades in terms of cost effectiveness and return on investment.
An energy auditor, on the other hand, is trained and certified to know exactly what to look for, and to use diagnostic equipment to find the specific sources of energy loss, and recommend a variety of solutions for varying budgets.
There are countless opportunities for Energy Auditors to improve the energy efficiency of existing homes, as well as new homes.
The Building Performance Institute (BPI) and the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) are the two organizations that set the standards for the energy efficiency industry.
BPI Building Analyst and RESNET HERS Rater are the most popular Energy Auditor certifications.

Students can start the online training immediately upon registration and take up to 45 days to complete.
