What do Weatherization Supervisors do?

Weatherization is the process of ensuring a building can stand up to harsh weather conditions, and that it uses energy efficiently. A Weatherization Supervisor runs a staff of Weatherization Inspectors, either for a large company of from their own business. Together, you and your Inspectors spend your days as Detectives, sniffing out any elements in a building that need improvement.

As the Weatherization Supervisor, you need to know how the weatherization inspection process works. Which is, in short, a fairly simple checklist of ways to ensure a home stays warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and uses as little energy as possible to meet those needs. You use the knowledge of these inspection guidelines to make sure that you and your team perform fantastic weatherization exams. In addition, you research and stay on top of current regulations in the weatherization industry.

After advising your team of the new rules, you print out new checklists and send your team to investigate buildings for your clients. Some days you may do home walkthroughs yourself – that’s where you check that the home is up to current weatherization standards –while other days you send staff in to do it for you.

When you find a building that’s not up to snuff, you make a note and work with the owner to create a solution within their budget. Homeowners and Business Owners find a visit from a Weatherization Supervisor can save them money on energy costs and keep buildings in line with current rules to avoid unnecessary fines. You spend your days helping homeowners and businesses out.
