Nick, What are your thoughts on doing energy efficency analysis in the home insp industry?
Is it covered by E&O
What kind of training is needed?
How much is the normal charge for doing such an analysis?
What is the actual call for doing such testing?
Is the analysis testing regulated by local, state, feds?
Can there be $$$$$$ made in it?
If you dont have time to do it right the first time, When will you have the time to go back and fix it?

Kenneth here in California the Law says quote:
Section 25401.7 of Calif Public Resources Code states that at the time a single-family residential dwelling is sold, a buyer or seller may request a home inspection and that a home inspector shall provide contact information for entities that provide home energy information.
Section 7195 of the California Business and Professions Code states that if requested by the client, a home inspection may include an inspection of energy efficiency.
I have been a Certified HEERS rater with Energy Check Up for about a year. I haven't performed very many inspections but give out a brochure with each inspection and if they ask I will perform the audit. I belive that I saw a link to them in NACHI,s affiliates page check them out if you are in the wright area it may be some extra $$$$.
