I found the presentation easy to follow and in some ways simplistic. I liked the slides and the examples shown. I especially liked the example of the house in Vermont and would have liked to have heard more on that example.

I enjoyed the presentation. I opened the pdf of the outline and opened the quiz in another window and scored 100% on the quiz which was nice feedback. I just purchased a 1980's home rife with opportunities to watch my electric bill drop. I am looking forward to implementing the suggestions outlined, contacting FPL (my electrical utility) and improving the insulation, changing out a couple of poor windows and upgrading my appliances over the next 5 years to achieve return on investment while improving air quality and comfort level, using less energy and saving money.

this is not an intermediate course, for anyone in the construction industry this is a beginner course. the course was fine but the test was brutally made, full of double negatives and grammar issues. questions 7 is supposed to discuss air escape but instead indicates insulation escaping from the building which doesn't even make sense. this test needs to be rewritten to reduce these issues.
