What is an Energy Auditor and why do we need them? The Greening of America's existing homes and commercial structures is about reducing our energy and water consumption, while improving our lifestyles.
It is the Energy Auditor's job to interpret data gathered through sophisticated testing and observation methods. The Energy Auditor provides the building owners with the best options for reducing water and energy consumption while protecting the health and safety of the occupants, and maintaining the building's mechanical and structural integrity.
An Energy Audit is the first step in the Greening of America's buildings, making the Energy Auditor one of the most important "Green Collar" professionals.
There is a great demand for highly trained auditors that have the capability to perform detailed inspections and make cost effective recommendations on improving efficiency.
Graduates of this program will have conferred upon them the title of CEA "Certified Energy Auditor" by the Green Mechanical Council.
