Energy ratings are a compelling way to explain the benefits of air sealing to your clients. Icynene works with RESNET and HERS Raters to show homebuyers how they can create a more energy-efficient home with spray foam insulation.
A Home Energy Rating System (HERS) rating illustrates home performance in a way that the homeowner can understand. A HERS Rater provides a rating of the house, recommends cost-effective energy upgrades, and estimates annual total energy costs.
The lower the HERS rating, the more energy efficient the home will be. Including spray foam insulation from Icynene can help contribute to a lower HERS rating, since the material insulates and air seals the home for improved performance. Additionally, spray foam insulation can meet local building codes confidently.
