Building Performance Institute/Home Performance
You understand that your car is made up of interacting components – when one component fails, it affects the performance of the whole vehicle. Do you know that the same goes for your house?
The components of your house—the insulation, HVAC systems, the thermal envelope, appliances and lighting—all contribute to your comfort, health and safety and energy efficiency of the home. If one system has a problem, it impacts the other systems’ ability to function properly. Treating the obvious symptom without knowing the real culprit behind it can make the problem worse or create new problems. Rather than focusing on a single problem, like leaky windows, the house-as-a-system approach looks at how improvements throughout your homework together to give you the most cost effective results.
EPA Lead-Safe Certified
To protect against this risk, on April 22, 2008, EPA issued a rule requiring the use of lead-safe practices and other actions aimed at preventing lead poisoning. Under the rule, contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination. EPA requires that firms performing renovation, repair, and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in pre-1978 homes, child care facilities and schools be certified by EPA and that they use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers to follow lead-safe work practices. Individuals can become certified renovators by taking an eight-hour training course from an EPA-approved training provider.
