What BPI Certification Means To You, The Homeowner

The Building Performance Institute (BPI) is a nationwide not-for-profit organization dedicated to the development of energy efficiency and occupant safety standards. Also offering credentialing services to contractors, the BPI’s mandate is to develop a skilled and specially trained fleet of professionals for the residential weatherization and energy efficiency industry.

So what do you stand to gain when you hire a Building Performance Institute-certified contractor to perform your energy-efficiency retrofitting? The answer is simple: a lot.

What BPI Certification Means To You, The Homeowner Yuma ArizonaThe Building Performance Institute has established demanding technical standards in a number of key areas, including home weatherization, energy efficiency, occupant safety and indoor-air quality. When you work with a BPI-certified contractor, you gain the assurance of knowing they have elite-level training and skills in these fields, giving them the unique ability to execute your home-energy efficiency retrofitting project at the highest level.

These standards are the result of years of intensive research, during which the Building Performance Institute pooled the intelligence, experience and resources offered by some of the nation’s leading building science and engineering professionals. The culmination of these efforts is a proven methodology for maximizing residential energy efficiency without sacrificing comfort or indoor air quality through the application of green technologies.

Another important aspect of the BPI’s work is that it focuses on job development. When you hire a Building Performance Institute-certified contractor, you’re making an investment in your local economy, as an additional branch of the organization’s mandate is to train professionals for skilled jobs that are both sustainable and non-exportable. You and your family will enjoy improved comfort, decreased energy consumption, lower utility bills, superior home durability and higher indoor-air quality as the result of trusting your weatherization or energy efficiency retrofitting project to a certified contractor.
