Energy efficient homes

My home came with a HERS® Score... What is a HERS Score?

Great question! Energy efficiency programs like Home Energy Rating System (HERS), ENERGY STAR®, LEED for Homes®, and National Green Building Standard™ (NGBS) take the guess work out of choosing an energy efficient house! 

Energy efficiency certified homes are carefully inspected by an applied building science professional (people like us!).  We verify that the home meets or exceeds the program's efficiency goals. 

Even better, when a home has an energy efficiency certification, you can compare it to other homes' efficiency and make the best choice for your preferences!

The HERS Score - One Number That Says It All!

Like a miles-per-gallon (MPG) label for houses, the HERS Index® Score is the one number that tells you how energy-efficient a home is compared to other homes.

  • Compare homes based on energy performance
  • Know what the projected energy costs are for the home you want to buy
  • Enjoy peace of mind by knowing the home was rated by a certified RESNET® HERS Rater
