Home Performance with Energy Star Contractor's Roundtable

Home Energy has published business development guides for residential building contractors that participate in the jointly-sponsored DOE/EPA Home Performance with Energy Star (HPwES) program.  To start off this forum discussion, here's a link to a HPwES roundtable of participating contractors with their answers to some basic questions about auditing and correcting homes.

Each contractor has a different take on the HPwES process, and the best way to make recommendations that solve customer's problems.  What's your take?

Tom, the link for HPwES roundtable of participating contractors isn't working for me. Not sure if that's a problem for others too...
Tom, dittos with Coby - sorry
Thank for the heads-up--the link should be working now.  We updated our site and some of the old links didn't get redirected.
