BPI Building Analyst Certification is proof that a home performance contractor is skilled at using building science knowledge to diagnose energy-related problems in the home.
This energy auditor certification relies on visual inspection, blower door testing, and combustion appliance safety testing to ensure a safe and energy-efficient dwelling for home occupants. BPI Building Analysts evaluate uncontrolled air leakage and identify heating and cooling problems that lead to high energy costs, health problems, and occupant discomfort.
At successful completion of the course, participants will be able to provide homeowners with the information necessary to reduce energy usage and costs.
