What is Building Performance Contracting?
Building (Home)Performance Contracting is more that just energy efficiency! It links building science with performance testing to create homes that are comfortable, durable, healthy, safe and cost-effective to operate. The basic idea is that all parts in a building are connected as a “whole house system”, where comfort and performance change based on indoor and outdoor conditions and on occupant activities. As homes became tighter and the equipment more complicated, it often takes skilled detective work and special diagnostic equipment to really determine what is happening in a house or whether your work has solved the problem.
