Certifications

The Building Performance Institute (BPI) is the nation's leading building science accreditation organization. The "house as a system" philosophy - which looks at a building's various components (building envelope, attic, basement, combustion equipment, ventilation sources) and the interrelationship between them to maximize a home's performance. This approach leads to greater energy efficiency, but perhaps more importantly to buildings that simply work better. A home that has been analyzed and upgraded from a whole-house standpoint is more durable, healthier, more comfortable, and more energy efficient. 

The Building Performance Institute certifies individual practitioners as having the knowledge and skills to diagnose and fix home energy proglems. Members of our team hold individual certification in all four of the single family home disciplines -

  • Building Analyst
  • Building Envelope Specialist
  • Heating Equipment
  • Air conditioning and Heat Pump

BPI also certifies companies as having procedures to assure high quality work and the appropriate licences and insurance.
