Energy expenses are the second greatest expense to owning a home, after the mortgage. The wise choice is to decrease and manage that cost by paying attention to your home's energy efficiency. If you're a homebuilder that wants to provide your client with a more efficient new home, we can help.
WE ARE A CERTIFIED RESENT HERS RATER
The Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) developed the HERS Index and introduced it in 2006. Only a certified RESNET rater can calculate a home's official HERS Index score.
What does a HERS rating say about a house?
The HERS Index measures a home's energy efficiency and there are a lot of great reasons to have a home energy rating performed on your house.
It can tell you so much a new home, like how efficiently it will operate and where you can make modifications for greater energy savings. When you're selling a home, a low HERS Index Score can command a higher resale price. And when you’re building a home you can anticipate the costs of energy bills and efficiency upgrades.
How does the HERS Index work?
A certified Home Energy Rater assesses the energy efficiency of a home, assigning it a relative performance score. The lower the number, the more energy efficient the home.
The U.S. Department of Energy has determined that a typical resale home scores 130 on the HERS Index while a standard new home is awarded a rating of 100.
- A home with a HERS Index Score of 70 is 30% more energy efficient than a standard new home
- A home with a HERS Index Score of 130 is 30% less energy efficient than a standard new home
