Setting the Standard for the Home Performance Industry

about BPI

The Building Performance Institute (BPI) is the nation's premier certification and standard-setting organization for home performance professionals. BPI and the home performance industry were established over 25 years ago with the mission of ensuring that all homes are healthy, comfortable, safe, and energy efficient.

BPI is accredited by the American National Standards Institute, Inc. (ANSI) as a developer of American National Standards and as a certifying body for personnel credentials. BPI develops the technical standards for home energy audits and for energy efficiency, health, and safety improvements. From these standards, BPI develops rigorous online and field exams resulting in one of over a dozen professional certifications

BPI Certified Professionals hold over 16,000 active certifications across the nation. Many state, local, and utility energy efficiency programs specify BPI certifications for participating contractors, to ensure that a skilled workforce is helping homeowners.

How BPI Helps Homeowners

For many homeowners and renters, energy bills account for far too much of the monthly budget. These homes suffer from performance problems ranging from uncomfortable drafts to poor indoor air quality. These are problems that regular contractors, or even the best DIY homeowner, cannot solve.

BPI GoldStar Contractors and BPI Certified Professionals conduct comprehensive energy audits to find problems, then prescribe and prioritize improvements that will make your home work better for you – making it more comfortable, safe, durable, healthy, and energy efficient for you and your family.

"Watch out for: Fly-by-night companies — 'blow and go' is the industry term — who charge a hefty fee for an audit, promise major upgrades, then disappear."
