ABOUT THE HPSC
The Home Performance Stakeholder Council (HPSC) is a not-for-profit society that supports the growth of the home performance industry in British Columbia (BC), Canada. Our mission is to increase the supply and demand of qualified home performance service providers by supporting market growth, capacity building, and quality workmanship
Home performance is determined by the energy efficiency, comfort, health, safety, and durability of a home. Retrofitting with a whole-home, or house-as-a-system approach, is key to improving home performance. This includes addressing the building envelope, mechanical systems, occupant behaviour, and environmental conditions to make the home as safe, comfortable, efficient, and durable as possible. To learn more about home performance, see our resources page.
About the Industry
The home performance industry is made up of stakeholders that support a whole-home, or house-as-a-system, approach to residential retrofits. This holistic approach recognizes that to improve the performance of homes in BC, retrofits need to be implemented with the entire house system in mind to avoid unintended consequences of isolated retrofits.
Although this holistic approach has always been important, historically, most homeowners in BC have only been completing single energy retrofits in isolation from other home retrofits. The HPSC was established in 2015 to serve as the lead industry facilitator to increase the supply and demand for BC contractors to deliver quality, affordable services for consumers that focus on whole-home performance.
