DETERMINE AND PROMOTE THE HERS® INDEX SCORES OF YOUR HOMES
What is the HERS Index Rating Program?
SkyeTec’s HERS Rating program evaluates and verifies the energy efficiency of a home using the Home Energy Rating system developed by the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET). The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index is the industry standard for measuring a home’s energy efficiency and is the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating energy performance.
SkyeTec’s HERS Rating program provides a cost-effective alternative for building energy efficient homes while still satisfying the growing consumer demand for energy efficient homes. SkyeTec can help you achieve your desired energy efficiency goals and earn a low HERS score.
How is the HERS Score Determined?
SkyeTec’s Rating Field Inspectors test and inspect various features and building components of the home throughout the construction process. This testing and inspection data is entered into RESNET approved software to calculate the HERS Index score. HERS Index scores fall on a scale from 0 to 150, with zero being the most energy efficient possible (net zero) and 150 being very inefficient.
How does a HERS Rated Home Benefit the Homebuyer?
HERS rated homes offer the buyer a number of benefits, including:
- Reduced utility costs
- Increased thermal comfort
- Lower maintenance costs
- Healthier indoor air quality with fewer moisture problems
- Higher market appraisal value
- A more durable home through improved building techniques and materials
