Paul Button has had a passion for energy conservation for over 40 years. He attended UMass-Boston where he studyied Marine Ecology and Environmental Science. There was little available field work, so Paul fell back on his Associate Degree in Engineering and began a 30-year “detour” into the corporate world of mechanical engineering. Paul retired from Hewlett-Packard in 2002 as a Principal Mechanical Engineer, where he designed ruggedized cabinet-based network systems.
Paul went back to work in 2003 as an electrician for a small weatherization company out of Milford, NH. It was there he first began performing energy audits, writing work scopes, submitting computer models to the utilities, and performing QA inspections. Paul then moved into the low-income weatherization programs run by the State of NH, and became a certified energy auditor under the auspices of the New Hampshire Office of Energy and Planning.
Energy Audits Unlimited LLC, Paul’s company, was formed when Paul saw a need to address single-family homeowners who did not qualify for the low-income programs, due to income levels. The company has transformed over the last two years to include training classes for not only auditors but also crew and crew chief training. Energy Audits Unlimited is a BPI affiliate organization and Paul is a BPI-certified Building Analyst Professional and Envelope Professional.
