Ardath Cade Scholar Shawn Rice completes his BPI (Building Performance Institute) Certification Training in an ACDS-owned rental home. As the resident looks on, Shawn explains the process of pumping air through the front door in order to reveal any leakages throughout the home. This analysis helps energy auditors achieve the highest possible efficiency of HVAC systems and low and moderate income homeowners/renters achieve utility savings.
Shawn’s training was made possible by an Ardath Cade scholarship of $1,000, covering his tuition costs for the course. As a certified Energy Auditor, Shawn will help ACDS use its resources as effectively as possible to provide quality affordable housing in our County.
