Working together, our organizations will be able to offer the technologies, training, business mentorship and services that today’s contractors need to excel in the expanding home performance marketplace.
Centerville, OH (PRWEB) October 26, 2015
Today the Building Performance Institute, Inc. (BPI) and Aeroseal LLC announced a strategic partnership to offer BPI GoldStar Contractor program participation to Aeroseal dealers, and to provide Aeroseal’s Comfort Institute home performance training to the existing network of BPI GoldStar Contractors. The partnership strengthens access to best practices in home performance technical standards and product innovations for both parties’ contractor networks.
As a result of the partnership, Aeroseal will offer its dealers access to BPI’s GoldStar Contractor program, while its home performance training subsidiary, Comfort Institute, will assist dealers in meeting training and certification requirements needed to join the BPI program. BPI GoldStar Contractors will benefit from the alliance through expanded training opportunities and access to some of the latest innovations in home performance solutions, including Aeroseal’s aerosol-based duct sealing technology.
“Aeroseal’s expertise in developing duct sealing technologies is closely aligned with our house-as-a-system approach to home performance, so this partnership is a natural step for us,” said Larry Zarker, BPI CEO. “Working together, our organizations will be able to offer the technologies, training, business mentorship and services that today’s contractors need to excel in the expanding home performance marketplace.”
“The BPI GoldStar credential represents the highest standard of work in home performance contracting, while Aeroseal duct sealing technology and Comfort Institute training are proving pivotal to ensuring industry best practices,” said Amit Gupta, CEO, Aeroseal LLC. “Together, we now offer the full package – for contractors looking to grow their businesses, and homeowners seeking the best, most cost-effective way to maximize energy efficiency, comfort and indoor air quality for their homes.”
The BPI / Aeroseal strategic partnership was first announced to Aeroseal dealers and Comfort Institute members earlier this month at the first annual Aeroseal Success Summit. More than 200 attendees gathered at the three-day event in to share skills and learn more about innovations in the home performance market.
Aeroseal is the sole owner and licensee of aerosol duct sealing technology, an innovative means of sealing ductwork from the inside out. The technology helps residential and commercial customers meet their goals for energy savings, improved indoor air quality, and achieving even temperatures in all rooms. Aeroseal is also the parent company of Comfort Institute, a leading organization focused on training and supporting contractors in home performance best practices.
