- The Science
As certified Building Performance Institute (BPI) Building Analysts, we have completed BPI's extensive training courses and conduct weekly training sessions to keep up to date on certifications every three years. We are certified to conduct blower-door tests, combustion appliance inspection, air quality testing including carbon monoxide detection, duct testing, and airflow testing. As certified BPI Building Envelope Professionals, we have an even deeper understanding of the building envelope and how it works with other building systems. The Building Performance Institute (BPI) is the nation's leading building science accreditation organization. The "house as a system" philosophy - which looks at a building's various components (building envelope, attic, basement, combustion equipment, ventilation sources) and the interrelationship between them to maximize a home's performance. This approach leads to greater energy efficiency, but perhaps more importantly to buildings that simply perform better. A home that has been analyzed and upgraded from a whole-house approach is more durable, healthier, comfortable, and energy efficient. For additional information about BPI's standards, take a look at their Technical Standards for Building Analysts (PDF).

The crew did an excellent job. Everyone was so professional (on time, clean workspace, well mannered) they exceeded my expectations. I'm no longer using my dehumidifier and the air on the upper level is soooo much better.
