More builders using HERS Index to offer energy efficient homes
A growing number US builders are committing to have their home energy rated by a certified RESNET rater and highlighting their homes' HERS Index Score according to RESNET. US builders are recognizing the importance of providing their clients with such information and as a result are leading the way towards an industry that offers a wider range of high energy performance homes.
The RESNET HERS Index is the nationally recognized industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured. Certified Home Energy Raters complete a comprehensive inspection to understand and validate a home's energy performance. Also, the raters will help homeowners identify where they can make additional improvements such as energy efficient insulation like Icynene. The lower the score, the more energy efficient the home.
Working with a certified HERS Rater and a builder who uses the HERS Index can provide a range of advantages to both architects and their residential clients including overcoming key obstacles as well as improve the home's functionality. Icynene can work with you and your HERS Rater to have Icynene spray foam insulation improve your home's HERS Score.
