Contractor Resources & Links

Resources

Training and study resources are available through Saturn Resource Management (http://srmi.biz/).

We strongly suggest purchasing Residential Energy: Cost Savings and Comfort for Existing Buildings by John Krigger and Chris Dorsi.

The class study guides are:

The Blower Door Testing Reference Sheet is a good resource.

The Energy Conservatory user manuals are useful.

Retrotec has been a great supporter of the St. Louis regional HPwES program and has good learning resources.
