Project RetroTech Home Weatherization Instructor's Guide.
Department of Energy, Washington, DC. Office of Weatherization Assistance Programs.
Presented is a guide for developing lessons for a home weatherization course that promotes the use of retrofit technology to conserve energy in residential housing. The course is intended to cover processes and causes of building heat loss, and home retrofitting procedures. Each lesson description contains a list of points the instructor should emphasize and recommended visual aids. Although these lessons are designed for a course for supervisors of work crews engaged in home weatherization, these learning activities are also appropriate for trades programs at the secondary or postsecondary levels.
