Quality Workforce. Quality Assured.

A Note from A. Tamasin Sterner

A. Tamasin Sterner, Chief CoachIn 2011, Pure Energy Coach assisted 10 utilities in improving the quality of the work done on their customer's homes through utility low income weatherization, conservation, and efficiency programs. We inspected over 4,000 homes in 2011 and performed careful and detailed third-party reviews of 14 home performance contractors.
Proper CO testing
Proper location for CO testing
It is probably not news, but we are discovering serious health and safety problems in this nation's low income housing stock. About 80% of the homes we inspect have reportable gas leaks. We also find gas and oil heating and water heating systems backdrafting, sometimes leaking carbon monoxide (CO) into the air that people breathe.
We are working diligently to influence action to fix these serious problems. Please visit our Safe Air At Home website to learn more about our work to guarantee safe air in homes.
