BPI Building Analyst Certification

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.
