Did you know that energy efficient construction is saving the United States government, citizens, and
businesses more than $500 million per year in avoided energy costs? Though there are a number of financial benefits to owning an energy efficient home, one of the primary advantages is the home’s reduced impact on the environment. Though home inspections are not intended to be an energy audit, understanding energy efficiency and energy efficient construction are important for home inspectors. This course will provide an in-depth look into energy usage, design, and building for residential structures, will explore the multiple components of residential construction, and will discuss ways to make homes more energy efficient.

Chapter list:

1. Terms and Definitions
2. Energy Efficiency of Water Heaters and Plumbing Equipment
3. Energy and Lighting Inspections

McKissock is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 378.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I live hundreds of miles away from any seminar facility. McKissock courses are easy to use invaluable for obtaining my required CEC. documentation. Also, I always learn something new (and helpful) when a take a McKissock course.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I think the course went into too much calculation which is not required in doing a home inspection. Though it is good to know how to use the various formula, it was not necessary if it is not be given to the customer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This was the hardest course in the entire Mckissock catalog. You will need to spend quality time in front of this course. It demands it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The course itself was good and very informative. But a 40 question final exam is outrageous. It took over an hour just to take the final exam with all the calculating necessary to answer the questions properly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This course is more suited to an energy auditor than a general home inspector. Calculations for energy usage and annual costs are beyond the scope of a general home inspection.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This course is way too technical and worthless for the average home inspector.
Date published: 2019-07-30
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This course is a joke for most licensed home inspectors. None of the reverent home inspector associations you cited in the course or my state licensing board requires me to make energy calculations for my client. In fact I am not required to do any energy calculations AT ALL.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This coarse had many needless energy calculations that had nothing to do with home inspections.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The course exam is ridiculously too difficult. Calculation of energy costs are not necessary to understand the concepts,

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible. Much of the information, nearly 50%, is irrelevant, not to mention uninteresting. LInks are outdated.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I do not recommend this course, unless you are interested in doing a bunch of calculations that are not required for normal home inspections.
