Weatherization work guidelines launched

The SWS can be used as an industry guide for workers, training instructors, homeowners, and program administrators involved in the home performance industry. In addition, the Energy Department is working to mandate that all WAP-funded weatherization efforts be inspected by a certified quality control inspector. The new Home Energy Professional Certifications require home energy professionals to demonstrate comprehensive and technical proficiency in the four most common job classifications in the home energy upgrade industry: energy auditor, retrofit installer technician, crew leader, and quality control inspector.

Collaboration from the Get-Go

Thayer is participating in an Energy Department program that assists homeowners with weatherizing their homes. Soon, weatherization customers will be able to seek out contractors with the program's new Home Energy Professional Certifications.

According to the project team, before launching the SWS there was no go-to source on how to go into a house, retrofit it, and walk away recognizing that the job was done right.

"When we started the project three years ago, it was somewhat unprecedented. We initially brought together well over 100 experts to draft up the first of what these standards would look like," Beckley said. "This wasn't a lab exercise where we said, 'We think we know what's best'; rather, this was driven by industry. It was for industry, by
