3:30-4:30 PM

Presented by Guy Caroselli, LEAP


It’s not rocket science, but it is building science. This workshop offers insight into where the greatest opportunities lie for improving a building’s energy efficiency. Learn a simple method to determine your home’s energy use based on its size and compare it to an average or efficient home. This workshop identifies the four major areas that make up each dwelling’s unique building profile, and how they are linked to one another. We will debunk some commonly held energy myths and answer your questions about issues you’re having in your home. We’ll also show you the common materials that are generally used in a Home Performance with ENERGY STAR whole-house retrofit.
