Who is the best contractor to perform a home performance audit?SRP, APS and TEP are offering to pay for all but $99 for a home-performance at the homes of any of their customers. One requirement: You must choose a contractor from a list of pre-approved techs who are certified for this kind of work by the Building Performance Institute.
Still, not every contractor is as thorough as the next. Because the “auditor” will recommend improvements that could cost $1,000 or more—and might even offer to do that work as well—it’s important that you choose the contractor as carefully as you would for any other home-repair job.
So check not only the contractors’ BPI certification, but the Registrar of Contractors’ license, insurance, bond and references. Former customers can tell you if the visit was routine or extra-special.
Then, cross-check your choice with the award-winning Rosie on the House Referral Network to make sure you are working with the best of the best.
