KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI, USA, January 13, 2022 / -- EnergySmart Institute now offers the HERS* Modeler course and certification in an online, on-demand format that allows new students and seasoned residential energy professionals to undertake their lessons at a comfortable pace. EnergySmart Institute has won multiple awards for their online training courses, including the 'Best of Show' award, from the annual Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) 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 comprehensive energy model of any type of residential structure requires that all components of that structure be evaluated correctly. This means that many items must be taken into account such as size of building, type of construction, amounts of insulation, orientation of building, number & size of doors & windows, efficiency of heating, cooling & water heating equipment plus other features.

After an accurate energy model is developed then different scenarios can be tested to determine if certain improvements, such as the addition of a solar energy system, will pay for themselves. If the residential energy model is created and approved by a certified home energy (HERS) rater then 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 requisite educational knowledge, field experience, awareness 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 shown in the first paragraph of this article for more information.
