The Healthy Home Evaluator credential is the newest credential and will become The new standard for evaluating homes. This session will expand the vision of auditors and technicians to show that the majority of their findings and corrections are the basis of the Healthy Home Evaluator credential. This session will be a case based presentation and have interactive exercises that go thru several areas of a home with the standard auditors vision and then expand the scope to include what a HHE is assessing and reporting on. The overlap will be obvious and provide confidence for any auditor that they can perform a Healthy Home Assessment.
Auditors are performing Healthy Home assessments and observing the conditions everyday, they are just not documenting the findings. Loose handrails, trip hazards, insects & pests and similar conditions are common conditions in any home. Just not part of an energy work scope report. These are all part of the HUD "Keep-It" principles in Healthy Homes. We will provide an overview of an assessment and cover the Healthy Home Principles that most technicians have not been trained on - until now!
This is a visual comparison vs a knowledge base or fundamentals.
Session will visually detail the differences in what an Auditor vs HHE will observe in a kitchen, childs bedroom, bathroom, family room and HVAC system.
Includes interactive visual exercises and discussions.
The session will cover: Overview of: Healthy Home Evaluator, assessment, some of the tools & techniques of HHE, findings - communicating, documenting and recommendations.
