About Revireo

ReVireo is an energy efficiency and green building services company.  We provide a range of consulting, inspection, and certification services to architects, builders, developers, contractors, and building owners.

Job Description

The Residential Energy Efficiency Inspector position is a hands-on, field-based role in which the employee will conduct onsite inspections and tests to assess the energy efficiency of new homes. Inspections include quantitative data collection, such as measuring HVAC duct leakage and whole-house envelope leakage, as well as qualitative data collection, such as identifying construction materials and taking photos of the home.

After a training and certification period of approximately 2 months (or less if the employee already has the requisite credentials – i.e., RESNET RFI or HERS Rater credential), the employee will be assigned inspections daily. The employee will travel to the assigned construction sites, conduct the inspections and/or tests, record results, and communicate issues, recommendations, and results with the construction manager.

The employee will learn and utilize construction techniques, building science, energy efficiency terminology, construction timelines, and communication with clients. The employee will become familiar with the inspection equipment and testing procedures, including preparing units for inspection and diagnosing test-related issues. ReVireo will provide all inspection equipment and materials; the employee will operate his or her own personal vehicle for transportation.
