What Is a BPI Certified Professional?

What is most important to you when it comes to your home—aesthetics? Maintenance? Energy efficiency? If you’re like most people, energy efficiency is at the top of the list. Homeowners today value energy efficiency more than ever. It’s also easier than ever to achieve high home energy efficiency!

From energy assessments to air sealing, insulation and more, professionals can help you save on your energy bills and live more comfortably all year long. If you’ve been researching ways to make your home more energy-efficient, you may have come across the term “BPI” or something similar.

What does it mean to have a BPI certification? Should you hire a BPI certified company? Keep reading to learn more!

BPI Certification

The Building Performance Institute is a national organization that helps develop “standards for energy efficiency retrofit work using an open, transparent consensus-based process built on sound building science.” They develop professional certifications, energy rating systems and quality assurance services to help improve home performance and weatherization from both a homeowner’s and professional’s perspective.

BPI standards are cited by the U.S. Department of Energy’s ENERGY STAR® program and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Why Choose Certified Professionals?

Why should you choose a BPI certified professional? They:

  • Have passed BPI’s arduous exams that confirm their expertise in building science solutions.
  • Understand energy efficiency and how to improve it in your home.
  • Can provide important safety functions (like carbon monoxide testing).
  • Know how to help you prepare your home for energy upgrades (solar, geothermal, etc.).
