Seven Products Now on BPI Product List
MALTA, NY – September 9, 2015 –The Building Performance Institute, Inc. (BPI) has recognized several new products in its Product Listing Program that meet or exceed industry standards, providing contractors and consumers with quality assurance on products and materials in the residential energy upgrade marketplace.
BPI identifies the appropriate industry standard or efficacy requirement which the product must meet, then ensures the product meets the standard or protocol for its product group, such as ventilation, air sealing, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) or insulation. Once reviewed and approved, the product is added to BPI's approved Product List on its website. The manufacturer is then eligible to place the BPI Product Mark on its packaging and marketing materials.
Not all products meet industry standards, so manufacturers included in this listing benefit from: differentiation of their higher quality materials, identification as a leader in the home performance industry and direct connection of consumers and contractors to their website. The BPI Product Mark on packaging, literature and advertising signals to the industry and consumers a high quality product that has been verified by a trusted third party.
There are currently seven products tested, approved and listed on the BPI Product Listing website.
