Weatherization Agency Staff Leads on New Technology
We are lucky to have a talented workforce of experienced building professionals running and managing our 24 local weatherization program around Washington state.
One of these professionals is Charlie Rogers, property rehabilitation specialist with Homewise, at the City of Seattle Office of Housing. Charlie was recently profiled on the cover of “Accelerate America” magazine for his work on carbon dioxide heat pump water heaters, a new energy saving technology he’s been trying in low-income multi-family properties in Seattle. The carbon dioxide technology uses a refrigerant that avoids the greenhouse gas impacts of traditional refrigerants.
Charlie came to the Low-Income Weatherization Program network after running his own consulting firm offering third-party home energy inspections and audits.
