John Redmond commented on Johnny Ritzo's blog post How the Sequester will Impact the Home Energy Efficiency Industry
""The Home Performance Industry needs to take steps to reduce its reliance on federal and state programs beginning immediately." I could not agree with this statement anymore, Johnny. I have been saying for some time now, sooner or later…"

John Redmond replied to Noah Glatfelter's discussion If you had 30 seconds to tell a homeowner what your company does, how would it go?
"In our holistic approach to energy efficiency, we are not pushing cookie-cutter product-based solutions to a healthier home; instead, we are applying scientifically-proven methods designed to take the guesswork out of home improvement and resulting…"

John Redmond commented on CleanEdison's blog post 5 Common Mistakes of New Energy Auditors
"Daniel...I would have to agree with you in that a full blown-in energy audit is not necessary in all occasions. In order to determine whether it is or not, we sit down with the homeowner to find out what they are looking to accomplish with the work…"

Michael Matthews replied to John Redmond's discussion Are we setting ourselves up for a huge liability?
"Good day John: As a similarly minded person, so it would seem, I have similar concerns. The program which I work for has a policy of installing an ASHRAE 62.2 (modified) compliant fan in every house we retrofit. This method is to address the issues…"

John Redmond replied to John Redmond's discussion Are we setting ourselves up for a huge liability?
"You hit the nail on the head, Bob. But as you have already alluded to, these federal programs are not energy-efficiency programs...they are pseudo-job programs. If they were the former, they would be targeting homes on the high square footage scale…"

Bob Blanchette replied to John Redmond's discussion Are we setting ourselves up for a huge liability?
"The problem is the funds aren't being targeted properly. Funds should be targeted to those with large utility bills, not trying to squeeze even lower bills out of an already efficient home. Instead of a 15% reduction, they should ask for a…"

George W. Reynolds replied to John Redmond's discussion Are we setting ourselves up for a huge liability?
