Energy Auditors need to be knowledgeable about all of the heath and safety issues that impact the people living in the home. Weatherization work can make air quality problems worse. For that reason, you may want to consider some additional training.
Radon gases have been shown to cause cancer. If air sealing work is done in the weatherization process, it may raise radon levels in the home. Energy Auditors can test radon levels when they assess potential safety issues in the home. They can also retest after weatherization work has been completed, ensuring that levels are still safe for occupants.
