Needs a date

I've taken a number of seminars on energy auditing, energy rating, etc. I also have been working as a home inspector in Chicago for the last 12 or 13 years. If any member would like to have a free, no obligation, no 'marketing gimmick, no b.s. energy audit of their home well then, I would be happy to do that as time allows. It would just be a walk and talk evaluation. I would not set up our blower door to quantify the leakiness of the building shell but I would bring along the thermal imaging camera and, in this weather, we WILL find your building shell deficiencies! Other members could come along as the host/homeowner deems appropriate. It could be a good learning experience for all. Just a thought!
I also recommend the energy impact illinois program. Although being a general contractor certified at the Green tech Center, the progam had me learn a few things. The energy audit is free if you do a houseparty with 4-5 neighbors, or $99. then they can airseal your home , and re-test the results at the end. I received a was a rebate of $1671.- and spent $2388.- I though that was a good deal! feel free to contact me for more info

I rent in an old neighborhood. My building is beyond help. Though the landlord is doing the best he can, it should have been a rebuild, not a rehab. It is over 100 years old, wooden construction on gravel foundation, constantly resettling and shifting positions resulting in leaky windows and cracked walls. Fortunately, even though one needs a Dramamine on a windy day, it handles high gales well.
I joined the group because I would like to learn more about the sustainable energy, because I strongly believe that it is the future.

Folks, it is a glad feeling to see more and more people indulging, educating and interacting in sustainable / renewable energies. I would highly recommend mostly FREE training provided in California in most aspects of Solar energy and all types of energy audits trainings. I have taken several courses. Take a moment to visit this website and check their training calender. Mostly free as they are utilities sponsored. www.energycenter.org Go to the bottom of the page for Workshops and CCSE calender.
Hope we all Chicagoans can take advantage. Write me if you need more info and advice. - Sam

I'm really interested in this as I just started working with Energy Impact Illinois here in Chicago. If anyone's interested in doing energy efficiency improvements on their home, please give me a call. We're funded through the stimulus package and Department of Energy so it's essentially our money coming back to us! Jenna: [masked] Dan, I'd also love to tag along on your next audit for a learning experience. Thanks!

Dan, my wife and I recently purchased a bungalow built around 1902. We close on May 18th. I actually work in the commercial sector doing energy audits...mainly K-12 and higher ed buildings. I would love to schedule a walkthrough of our house and bounce ideas around. I will keep in touch closer to the date.

Just click on "Schedule an Inspection/Audit" at the top right corner of the home page. If you book it as a 'Courtesy Inspection' there will be no fee associated with the booking. Make sure you choose your truly as the inspector in attendance...there are 3 inspectors in our firm. Thanks!

Hi All....I'm looking forward to working with a small group on an energy walk-through of the old 2 flat. We are pretty well jammed up this week with home inspection work and next week (the first week of May) I'll be up at Pictured Rocks Nat'l Lakeshore doing some volunteer trail work with the Nat'l Park Service. Mark, why don't you just go to our website at www.domicileconsulting.com and book it at the time that is convenient for you and the other interested parties?

Hi Chyanne....I live in Bucktown so Logan Sq. is a hop and skip away. Although at my age I don't do much of either! Do you have any fellow Green enthusiasts who would like to attend? Much of the information that we would garner at your home is transportable to other living spaces. The more who attend then the more we get the word out about how to improve indoor comfort, air quality, and efficiency.
