You can now vote for the sessions you’d like to see offered at the 2012 RESNET Building Performance Conference in Austin, Texas.

Naturally, I’m telling you this because one of my roles here in the blog is to keep you informed. Another of my roles is to put you under a hypnotic spell so that you’ll do my bidding.

You are getting sleepy…Your eyelids are so heavy…so heavy that you cannot keep them from falling over your eyes…Your fingers are moving over the keyboard of your computer now…click there…no, not there…just to the left…ah, yes…

Well, OK, I’m not really trying to do anything covert. I’m just going to tell you exactly what I’d like you to do. And that is, go to the voting page for the RESNET 2012 conference sessions (link below) and vote for our sessions. I’ve got three proposed sessions and Chris, Energy Vanguard’s architect dude, has one, all described below.

2012‐52 Internet Marketing 101 for Home Performance Raters, Auditors and Contractors. I’m doing this one with Peter Troast, founder and CEO of Energy Circle. Peter’s company is a leader in helping energy auditors and contractors with marketing support, and Peter himself is an the coolest guy you could ever hope to meet. He talks the talk and walksPeter Troast of Energy Circle is a great guy, and you should vote for his sessions at the 2012 RESNET Conference. the walk. This guy’s got LED lamps in his range hood! This session is for beginners. If you’re at the front end of the internet marketing learning curve, this session is for you.

2012‐54 Turbocharge Your Home Energy Business with Blogging and Social Media. Again, this is me and Peter Troast. Here we’re going a little further than the IM 101 session, and I’ll divulge the secrets of my blogging success. (Of course, there’s really no secret – it’s aliens.) And did I mention that Peter is an amazingly awesome guy!

2012‐125 Energy Efficient Mortgage Tips, Tricks, and Case Studies. Jason Payne of EEM Training and I are hoping to do a followup (if you vote for us!) on the EEM talk we gave at the 2011 RESNET Conference. This one will have more data about the results of the EEM projects he’s worked on as well as more good info about how to make this amazing mortgage product work. Jason knows EEMs better than anyone else I know.

2012‐10 Heaven or Hell: 2 Projects That Illustrate the Value of Integrated Design. Chris “Architect Dude” Laumer-Giddens and Jamie Kaye of Elm Energy Group have a great proposal here to discuss how to make projects flow better and how to achieve better results. In two words, the answer is, Start early. These two guys have worked on a few projects together and know what they’re talking about.

So now you know four of the sessions you should vote for. You get to vote for a total of 10 out of the 200 proposals, and then RESNET figures out how to put the program together from those votes. You don’t have to be a member of RESNET to vote. All you have to do is go to the voting website and select 10 sessions, including the 4 above, of course.

  1. I like the presentation on
    I like the presentation on designing for dew point. I’ve often wondered how cold I could run the house in the summer without condensation problems. I’m wondering if I can visually tell a lot about air infiltration for a customer by setting the AC on 65 (just below the dew point at night in Atlanta). It might be an interesting test to suggest before I come to do the audit! 
     
    My hunch is that a tight house won’t condensate at the dew point if the HVAC system is sealed properly too. 
     
    I also like the one about conducting the homeowner interview.

    Sheesh. You’re making me blush. It’s an honor to be side by side with you for these presentations. 
     
    Thanks for the kind words.
