Congratulations to Matt G.

HERS Rater

Matt G. is a newer addition to the DuctTesters team.  Matt joined DuctTesters with a Physical and Biological Science Degree from the College of the Canyons. While attending College, Matt was a member of the “Hands on Earth Club”  and held a strong passion to learn more about sustainability and energy-efficiency. His ambition to grow and educate himself further led him to DuctTesters. Matt joined the team as a HERS Rater Apprentice and shadowed Certified HERS Raters in the field for a few months learning the ins and outs of compliance, efficiency and quality assurance. This hands-on understanding of the building energy code compliance helped Matt with his training to become an official Certified HERS Rater. Matt recently took the CalCERTS training and certification courses and is an official Certified New Residential Construction and Alterations HERS Rater. We are proud of Matt and his dedication to our company.

Congratulations Matt!
