BPI Building Performance Analysis
Make The Right Choice in Contractors:
Home Energy Audit
Unfortunately, anyone can offer you a “Home Energy Audit”. The person or company making the offer does not have to have any training, licensing, insurance or experience. Be careful who you let into your home. Unless a contractor is either BPI (Building Performance Analysis) or RESNET certified they have no business offering any type of “Home Energy Audit.” If they can’t provide proof that they are certified, kindly ask them to return when they have the proper licensing and certification.
For more than 20 years, BPI has been raising the bar in home energy auditing and energy efficiency upgrades. BPI establishes national standards and workforce credentials based on the principle that your house is a system. Optimizing the relationship between the building envelope, heating, A/C, ventilation and other systems of your home is the key to its overall performance in terms of comfort, health and safety, and energy efficiency.
When you choose a BPI certified professional or accredited contracting company for your project, you get a member of the elite. BPI certified professionals have passed BPI’s rigorous written and in-field practical exams that verify their knowledge and skills in building science solutions. BPI certified pros know how to improve energy efficiency while providing important safety functions such as mold prevention, carbon monoxide testing, and combustion appliance safety checks. They also have the know-how to help you prepare your home for solar, geothermal, or other types of energy upgrades.
Home Energy Analysis
Why a BPI Certified Building Analyst?
For many homeowners and tenants, energy bills account for too much of the monthly budget. These homes often suffer from performance problems ranging from inflated energy consumption to poor thermal comfort to indoor air quality issues. These are problems that product rebate programs, regular contractors or even the best do-it-yourself homeowner cannot solve.
BPI certified professionals are in demand now more than ever before. In fact, many state-run energy efficiency and weatherization assistance programs demand BPI credentials. BPI certified professionals have a key role to play in helping these programs expand.
BPI is a national standards development organization for residential energy efficiency and weatherization retrofit work. As an independent, not-for-profit organization, they bring together leading building science experts from across North America to develop our standards using a consensus-based methodology.
BPI is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as an approved developer of American National Standards. Through BPI’s Standards Technical Committee and its working groups and dozens of committed industry participants, the BPI Standards program maintains an unmatched reputation as the home performance industry’s leading standards body.
