"Good question. I'm somewhat new to the game but I'd say if there isn't one, go directly to as many auditors as you can and see who will allow you to do an initial phone interview with recent customers."

"I haven't heard anything about HES being defunded. DOE manages the database and program model but local jurisdictions (state, non-profits, municipalities) are then the ones fund/administer and train folks. Not sure were you live but check here…"

"Hi Will - Have you considered doing an energy audit instead to fully reveal the opportunities for upgrades in these homes? Based on what you've said, there is cause for concern about the legitimacy of the HES tool."
