KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI, USA, January 13, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — EnergySmart Institute now offers the HERS Modeler* courses and certification in an on-demand, online format that allows new students and seasoned home energy professionals to undertake their coursework at a comfortable pace. EnergySmart Institute has won several awards for its online training courses, including the “Best of Show” award, given by the annual Residential Energy Services Network (RENET) conferences.
The ability to produce accurate and reliable energy models of all types of residential buildings is a stated goal of RESNET. Basically, to produce a complete energy model of any type of residential structure, all components of that structure must be properly rated. This means that many elements must be taken into account, such as the size of the building, the type of construction, the amounts of insulation, the orientation of the building, the number and size of doors and windows, the effectiveness of heating, cooling and water heating equipment, as well as other characteristics.
Once an accurate energy model has been developed, different scenarios can be tested to determine if certain improvements, such as adding a solar power system, will be profitable. If the residential energy model is created and approved by a Certified Home Energy Assessor (HERS), special financing automatically becomes available through an energy mortgage offered by secondary mortgage markets such as Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Veteran’s Administration (VA) and FHA/HUD.
It is important that residential energy professionals have the required educational knowledge, field experience, knowledge of energy alternatives, and understanding of applicable energy codes to be able to produce viable energy models.
There is a $100 discount for the HERS Modeler online on-demand course available for a limited time. Please click on the links given in the first paragraph of this article for more information.
