Minnick U is open to anybody who wants to learn, and that includes homeowners interested in learning more about home energy efficiency, building science, indoor air quality and combustion safety.

If you’re looking to make your home more green and reduce your carbon footprint, or would like to reduce your home’s energy bills (with a particular emphasis on reducing heating bills and cooling bills), or are simply concerned about indoor air quality and minimizing the risk of asthma and allergies, we offer the training to put you on the right path.

Reduce Your Energy Bills

The most frequent reason for homeowners looking to learn about building and home performance is the desire to reduce heating and cooling bills. With energy prices in flux and heating and cooling costs representing an increasingly large portion of the average home budget, home performance improvements can significantly increase energy efficiency, leading to lower energy bills year-round and creating savings that last the duration of the home’s life.

Improve Your Home’s Health & Safety

Home performance can improve your home’s indoor air quality, reducing the risk of asthma, allergies and other respiratory issues, while also taking into account even more serious issues such as combustion equipment backdrafting. At Minnick U, you will learn about how to check your combustion equipment to ensure that it is working safely, as well as how to evaluate your home for proper ventilation and to ensure that your home has healthy indoor air quality.

Reduce Your Home’s Environmental Impact

Homes are a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. By reducing the amount of energy your home requires to stay comfortable throughout the year through home performance improvements, you reduce your home’s contribution to climate change and air pollution, as well as other environmental issues. If you’re interested in living greener or helping to mitigate climate change, learning about home performance and home energy efficiency is a great place to start.
