Earn Your Home Energy Auditor Certification
The Building Performance Institute (BPI) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to standardizing procedures for home energy professionals.
BPI relies on a network of affiliated organizations, such as Everblue, to provide training on the BPI Technical Standards and to administer the corresponding certification exams.
Why BPI Certification?
- Offers a new career path as a certified home energy auditor
- Focuses on improving the energy efficiency of existing homes
- Provides contractors with a nationally recognized certification
Become an Expert in Home Performance
BPI-certified energy auditors evaluate the overall conditions of a home and identify energy-related issues at the source.
You'll use building science knowledge and diagnostic tests to assess the home's energy use and make recommendations for energy efficiency improvements.
Supplement your knowledge with BPI's technical processes, such as:
- The "House-as-a-System" Approach
- Blower Door & Duct Testing
- Combustion Safety Testing
Great for HVAC Technicians & Residential Contractors
With BPI Certification, you can use building science principles to create a more comfortable, safe, and durable home for your clients.
Those who benefit most from BPI Certification include:
- HVAC technicians
- General contractors
- Insulation installers
Most use home energy auditing as a foot-in-the-door to their primary business service – ie, establishing a strong relationship with a potential client during the audit and upselling them on remodeling and retrofit work.
