Professional certification recognizes individual excellence.
There are 130 million existing homes in America, and many were built before modern energy codes were established. Residential structures are responsible for 20% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the country, because they use so much fossil fuel. For many homeowners and tenants, energy bills account for far too much of the monthly budget.


These are problems that product rebate programs, regular contractors or the best homeowner cannot solve.

BPI certified professionals are in demand now more than ever before. In fact, many state-run energy efficiency and weatherization assistance programs demand BPI credentials. With the unprecedented funding available under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), BPI certified professionals have a key role to play in helping these programs expand.


Because BPI certified professionals are individuals who have proven their skills, meeting our stringent, nationally recognized standards by passing both written and field examinations. Ongoing Continuing Education Units (CEUs) keep these specialists on top of emerging issues, technologies and best practices.

Using the house-as-a-system approach, they conduct comprehensive whole-home assessments that go beyond a traditional energy audit to establish performance levels and trace problems to the root cause. Then they prescribe and prioritize real solutions based on proven building science. At the end of each job, a second assessment confirms that the desired performance improvements have been achieved.

The result is work that’s done right – the first time. Energy efficiency is enhanced for the long-term, while occupant comfort, health and safety are not just protected, but often dramatically improved.
