Dow Building Solutions announced a deal with Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) to promote improved home energy performance in the United States.
The two companies strive to accomplish this goal by encouraging building industry professionals to become trained and certified as RESNET EnergySmart Contractors or Builders.

“Dow Building Solutions is proud to collaborate with RESNET to educate the industry on how to safely and properly achieve high performing homes,” said Dale Winger, market manager, Dow Building Solutions. “Dow Building Solutions has been providing advanced building science expertise to the industry for decades, and by encouraging builders and contractors to become EnergySmart-certified, we come closer to meeting the shared goal of making homes more energy efficient and affordable for homeowners.”
