Elisabeth Bodnaruk has earned certification as a Radon Measurement Specialist and Radon Mitigation Specialist. The certifications were conferred by the National Radon Safety Board (NRSB) and Rutgers University.
With her new certifications, Bodnaruk, a home energy advisor with Halco Energy, is qualified to test homes for radon and recommend remediation measures when this colorless, odorless gas is found. To earn the credentials, Bodnaruk successfully completed a three-day course conducted by the New Jersey Agricultural Station’s Office of Continuing Professional Education at its Eastern Radon Training Center. She is the first Halco employee to earn radon certifications.
Bodnaruk is also BPI (Building Performance Institute) Envelope and Building Analyst certified. She performs home energy audits to determine how energy is being wasted, in addition to testing for radon. After gathering information about the building construction, existing insulation, air infiltration and HVAC systems, Bodnaruk calculates building heat loss and energy usage and recommends improvements where they are needed. Halco Energy performs more home energy audits than any other company in New York State.
The Greensboro, NC native earned a Bachelor of Science degree in physics from North Carolina State University and a Masters of Science in ecology from Syracuse University. Before joining Halco in February, Bodnaruk worked as a physicist at NIST (National Institute of Standards & Technology) in Gaithersburg, MD and a biology lab instructor and research assistant at Syracuse University.
