Welcome to Blue House Energy!

At Blue House Energy, we provide online training to the home renovation and construction industry - from site crew to sales office staff. Our building science-based training gives everyone on your team an understanding of how the house works as a system, and how to keep a house healthy, safe, and comfortable.

Improving energy efficiency while maintaining a healthy indoor environment is key to new construction and many renovation projects. You need to know how all the parts of the house interact to make sure you’re keeping these two elements in balance.

Here’s the thing: the higher the energy efficiency bar gets in building codes, and the closer we get to Net-Zero Homes or Deep Energy Retrofits targets, the more important building science and a whole-house approach becomes.

The Need for Training

Training is crucial to success.

Investing in training gives you the edge:

  • Fewer callbacks

  • Fewer warranty deficiencies

  • More informed sales team

  • Better bottom line

  • Better staff retention

But taking crews offsite for several days is expensive: there are registration, travel and accommodation fees, plus time off the job means reduced revenue and productivity. That’s why Blue House Energy exists: to provide high-quality, inexpensive training that’s online and on demand.

This type of training suits your schedule - it’s there when you’ve got time for it.

Blue House Energy for cheap and cheerful online training.

Well, our courses are cheap for you to buy, but we have set as high a standard for our courses as you have for your projects and jobs, and we want to see your training program succeed. Blue House Energy online training doesn’t replace face-to-face skills training. What it does is give you the background understanding and knowledge you need to do the job right.

  • BHE courses are short, sweet and to the point.

  • Concepts are explained through graphics and animations.

  • Designed for busy schedules, topics can be digested in 10 to 15 minute chunks.

Whether you are a one person shop or part of a large organization, you can afford Blue House Energy training. We’ve made it ridiculously easy — you can pay online in two ways: all at once, or in monthly installments.

Energy efficiency measures come at a cost, but what about the long-term benefits that come with homeowner stability and established communities?
