EPA seeks input on new protocols for home energy upgrades

By: Stacey Freed

Part of an announcement from Vice President Joe Biden in early November, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released for comment a series of best-practice tools “to maintain or improve indoor air quality and residents’ health when performing home energy retrofits.” 

The EPA is seeking comments from the public to help complete a document, currently in the draft stage, on home energy upgrades, which are “intended for voluntary adoption by weatherization assistance programs, federally funded housing programs, private sector home performance contractors, and others working on residential retrofit or remodeling efforts of single family and multi-family low-rise residential homes.”

Now’s the time for those in the remodeling industry to voice their opinion on protocols they may one day have to follow. For more information go to http://www.epa.gov/iaq/homes/retrofits.html.
