HEP Quality Control Inspector

All Weatherization Agencies Using DOE Funds Must Hire a Certified QCI

Starting January 1, 2015, all organizations using Department of Energy funding to run a Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) must have a certified Home Energy Professionals (HEP) Quality Control Inspector on staff to manage the process.

A quality control inspector is a residential energy efficiency professional who ensures the completion, appropriateness, and quality of energy upgrade work by conducting a methodological audit/inspection of the building, which includes performing safety and diagnostic tests and observing the work. A quality control inspector is also responsible for making sure a home is in compliance with government regulations, best practices, and applicable codes. They ensure customer satisfaction through interviews and feedback on the retrofit work done to their home.
