Educational Services

LaGrange Consulting has always been about educating customers about energy efficiency, indoor air quality, and sustainability. Sometimes the “educating” happens in the formal setting of a classroom environment.  LaGrange Consulting has provided many different courses from teaching homeowners how to air seal their homes to leading courses necessary for BPI certification. He currently teaches classes for builders and weatherization experts at LSU.
