Health Opportunities in Energy Audits and Upgrades workshop

The "one-touch" approach.
Energy and health -- together at last.

Learn about strategies for combining healthy homes and energy efficiency work for more of a “one-touch” home improvement approach. This approach is more convenient for the owner or tenant, is a more efficient use of staff time and funds, and is a way to be sure that one repair does not leave behind a bigger problem unbeknownst to a contractor only trained in energy efficiency.

This 7-hour workshop provides an opportunity for energy efficiency staff to learn about healthy homes and understand that energy efficiency is only one part of a safe and healthy home. Participants become aware of a wider array of housing problems they will encounter and may be able to address once they are working in a home.

The training can also provide an opportunity for contractors and staff from healthy homes and weatherization programs to meet and discuss common issues, including eligibility requirements, audit or assessment parameters, the types of services each program provides to their clients and opportunities for referrals.
