Home Energy Savings: A Practical Approach

Home Energy Savings: A Practical Approach
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH interactive presentation provides guidance on several energy-related topics including insulation, ventilation, heating and cooling, choosing and maintaining efficient water heaters, home appliances and solar energy systems.

The average U.S. family spends more than half of its annual household energy bill on heating and cooling. In addition, many appliances, heating systems and air conditioners aren’t properly maintained, are old and inefficient, compared to models being sold today.

These costs can be dramatically reduced by making some simple energy-saving improvements to your home, properly maintaining your existing heating and cooling, addressing weatherization and insulation issues at your house and getting into the habit of using energy efficiently all the time.

This 4 PDH online interactive presentation is intended primarily for electrical and mechanical engineers as well as energy specialists who are interested in learning more about home energy-saving considerations and the collection of systems that work together to achieve peak energy savings and to increase a home’s overall comfort.
