What is Home Performance
Home Performance is a philosophy with five guiding tenants: a home should be safe, healthy, comfortable, durable, and energy-efficient. It is also a science, based on the fact that a home is a complex interactive system that requires accurate testing when problems arise.
Many people either take those five tenants for granted or simply neglect them. That is, until something goes wrong.
Your home is one of the biggest investments you will ever make. Yet it doesn’t come with an instruction manual! Through MBPA you can learn about your home through the lens of building science. You may conclude it’s not a do-it-yourself project.
Then it’s time to consult a professional who understands building science and uses sophisticated testing equipment to evaluate your home. You will receive prioritized recommendations for action. After work is completed, retesting verifies that problems have really been corrected. This approach can stave off future problems and save you money!
Imperfections within a building can have long-term repercussions. For example, moisture can develop rot that weakens framing. Insufficient insulation causes ice dams that destroy your roof.
