I really enjoyed this course! It is a great introduction to building science and residential construction techniques, with the focus being on energy reduction and savings. Marc speaks clearly and doesn't not delve too deeply into technical details or calculations, which allows for a well-established understanding of the topics at a high level.

Marc's approach to deep energy retrofits is technically astute, pragmatic, and replete with a broad range of real world case studies. I completed this course understanding far more about DERs than I'd ever imagined.

This is the second course that I've taken with Marc (I'd taken his Zero Net Energy Homes course previously), and the superlative quality of Marc's instruction and assembled materials were entirely consistent with his ZNE course. I highly recommend Marc's courses.
