Owner's Background & Experience

Eric George - President of The Building Performance Group

Eric George, President and owner of the Building Performance Group, has over 15 years of experience in the new construction and building restoration fields, with most of those 15 years in the insulation and weatherization industries.

Eric's parents, Cindy and Craig George, opened a Paul Davis Restoration franchise when he was 13 years old and included him in all aspects of the fire and water damage restoration business from day one.

Throughout the time the Georges owned PDR, Eric worked in all facets of the restoration business, earning two certifications from the IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certifications) in Fire & Water Damage Restoration.  The IICRC mandates a very thorough understanding of building science principles surrounding moisture movement in buildings and how to dry structures properly and effectively.  Eric now applies this education every day when explaining building degradation and the causes for it during inspections.

When Eric was 18, his parents purchased a local insulation company that specialized in insulating and air-sealing custom homes with cellulose and spray foam.  Working in the company off and on through college, Eric and a good friend from Indiana University's Kelley School of Business decided to take over the company after graduating and expand the scope of the company's services into building weatherization. 

Running the insulation and weatherization company, Eric learned the other half of the building science equation on how to properly insulate and air-seal buildings with the correct materials and techniques to prevent building failure. 

The company, ISI Energy Savers, eventually began working for the Department of Energy's (DOE) low-income weatherization programs in Indiana. 

The DOE requires that anyone performing work for any State program be extensively trained and certified independently through the Building Performance Institute on all aspects of building science, including ductwork systems, applying pressure differentials, whole-house heatload calculations, residential energy auditing, understanding 80% and 90% furnaces, mold awareness, mobile home weatherization, and DSTO (daily safety test-out) procedures for worst-case gas appliance drafting.  The organization that trained Mr. George was INCAA in Indianapolis, Indiana. 

Over that period of time Eric's company weatherized hundreds of homes through the DOE program.  This required working side by side with the State's energy auditors to determine plans of action and determine causes for problems in homes. 

In addition to the DOE work, Eric also oversaw the weatherization of hundreds of existing homes in the general public, along with insulating and air-sealing new custom homes.

In early 2008 Eric earned the HERS (Home Energy Rating System) certification through Energy Efficient Homes Midwest and RESNET, and the Infrared Thermographer certification through Snell Infrared, and decided to start a new company focused entirely on building diagnostics and energy ratings. In early 2010 Eric also obtained his Building Analyst Professional certification from the Building Performance Institute (BPI).  In 2014 Eric attended training through the National Comfort Institue to obtain certifications in Residential HVAC Systems Performance & Air-Balancing testing.
