Pittsburgh, PA and Washington, DC (PRWEB) December 09, 2014
Pittsburgh, PA and Washington, DC The Home Performance Coalition (HPC) is excited to announce the launch of its new website for professionals in the home performance and weatherization industry. The new site, http://www.homeperformance.org, features in-depth information about HPC’s upcoming events and ongoing initiatives, as well as industry news and resources for industry professionals throughout the United States.
The Home Performance Coalition was created earlier this year through the merger of Affordable Comfort, Inc. (ACI) and the National Home Performance Council (NHPC) to unite the many voices of the home performance and weatherization industry, analyze industry trends and issues, provide education to advance the standards and practices of the industry, and support collaboration and business development throughout all sectors.
“Today’s website launch marks yet another important milestone for the Home Performance Coalition,” said Brian T. Castelli, HPC’s president and chief executive officer. “Our new website provides crucial resources for home performance and weatherization professionals, including information about upcoming educational events and networking opportunities, ongoing research and policy analysis, and an impressive archive of reports and presentations that examine a range of industry topics.”
Home performance and weatherization professionals—including contractors, weatherization crews and agencies, HVAC professionals, remodelers, utilities, manufacturers, and beyond—create solutions for comfort, health, and energy efficiency in residential buildings by exploring how buildings use energy and how building materials and appliances affect resource efficiency, air circulation, and moisture.
HPC is currently pursuing strategic affiliations with other key industry partners, including the Energy & Environment Building Alliance (EEBA), an organization that provides multi-platform educational resources to manifest sustainable and responsible building principles in the design, marketing, and execution of the building process; Efficiency First, the business association for America’s home performance industry; Home Energy Magazine, a bi-monthly publication covering topics in residential efficiency and comfort; and the Building Performance Institute (BPI), an organization that develops standards for energy efficiency retrofits, health, and safety work. In the coming months, HPC will release important information about how these affiliations will benefit professionals throughout the industry.
