Comprehensive Home Energy Audits

When you choose a BPI certified professional or accredited contracting company, you get a member of the elite – someone who has proven that they have the knowledge and skills to diagnose the root cause of the problems in your house and the ability to provide solutions to fix it right the first time.

That means you get your money’s worth – a comfortable, safe, durable home with improved indoor air quality and lower energy bills.

BPI Comprehensive Home Energy AuditsHigh energy bills, uneven temperatures from room-to-room, drafts, moisture, mold, mildew, poor indoor air quality, ice dams, pest infestations, seemingly uncontrollable humidity levels and even premature deterioration of building materials can all be the result of a breakdown in the relationship between the systems in your house – the building envelope (shell), heating and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment and you, the occupants.

If one system has a problem, it impacts the other systems’ ability to function properly. Treating the obvious symptom without knowing the real culprit behind it can actually make the problem worse or create new problems. The process of elimination approach just causes frustration as you try solution after solution – investing more time, money and energy – without resolution.

Properly diagnosing and fixing the root cause requires a house-as-a-system approach based on building science.

That’s exactly what BPI certified professionals and accredited contracting companies are trained to do. They conduct a comprehensive whole-home assessment to find the real problems, then prescribe and prioritize improvements that make the system as a whole function at its best. Then we back it all up with our national quality assurance program.
