Oct. 30, 2012: BPI's Home Energy Auditing Standard Released for Public Comment

MALTA, N.Y. — The Building Performance Institute Inc. (BPI) announced that a red-lined version of its BPI-1100-T-201x: Home Energy Auditing Standard is now available for public comment. BPI said the Home Energy Auditing Standard has been developed to standardize and clarify what is included in whole-building, science-based energy audits of existing homes. The public comment period ends on Nov. 19, 2012.

The red-lined version of the Home Energy Auditing Standard is currently undergoing American National Standards Institute (ANSI) review, which requires a public comment period as defined under BPI’s standards development process. Comments on the red-lined sections only are being solicited from stakeholders and the general public.

The Home Energy Auditing Standard provides the requirements for a building science-based evaluation of existing detached single-family dwellings and townhouses. The evaluation addresses energy usage in conjunction with limited aspects of building durability and occupant health and safety. It also provides a comprehensive scope of work focused on improving the home, including a cost-benefit analysis.

The Home Energy Auditing Standard was developed by a BPI Standards Technical Committee working group comprised of subject matter experts from a variety of interest groups and geographical locations. BPI said significant interest has been shown in the standard, which has gone through multiple rounds of review, including a previous ANSI review.
