Contractors who are working in homes today need to understand how the house works as a system. Homeowners and building occupants have common problems in homes today including high energy bills, rooms that don’t heat or cool properly, moisture problems (like condensation or mold), and even indoor air quality problems that can cause illness. There is a cause and effect nature of making changes to a home and can have unintended consequences in other areas. Changing just one part of the system may not be the best approach or even solve the root cause of the problem. BPI certified professionals receive training how to evaluate the house as a system in order to provide occupants with prioritized recommendations on the best approach to solve a problem that keeps energy efficiency, building durability, comfort, and occupant health in mind.
