Massachusetts State Energy CodeIn Massachusetts, all new construction is required to meet the 2015 IECC code requirements, and it must be tested and verified at both rough and finish. The MA website indicates that a certified HERS Rater or BPI-certified duct testing individual must do the testing.

Because of the code change, many HVAC business owners are pursuing either the RESNET HERS Certification or the BPI duct leakage certification to meet this requirement.

Everblue provides residential energy efficiency training for home performance contractors in Massachusetts:

  • Our BPI Infiltration and Duct Leakage (IDL) Certification qualifies individuals to do blower door and duct blaster testing. This training can be completed 100% online or partially in person.
  • Our RESNET HERS Rater training package provides a more thorough analysis of residential energy auditing, including building science education, combustion safety, and on-going mentorship.
