Beazer Homes Commits to Marketing the HERS Index of all Their Homes

November 3rd, 2011 - Posted by RESNET under Hot News

Beazer Homes has entered into an agreement with the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) to provide new home buyers an important measurement of long-term energy performance of each new home the company builds.  The intent of the agreement is to raise consumers’ knowledge of new home energy performance by using RESNET’s HERS Index.  Use of the HERS Index will differentiate homes built by Beazer Homes from other homes for sale in the market.

Beazer Homes is one of the largest home builders in the U.S.  They build homes in Arizona, California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Maryland, North Carolina, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.  Beazer builds 100% of their homes as ENERGY STAR.  For more information click on http://www.beazer.com

The RESNET HERS Index is the industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured. The HERS or Home Energy Rating System was developed by RESNET and is the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home’s energy performance. Certified RESNET Home Energy Raters conduct inspections to verify a home’s energy performance and determine what improvements can be made to increase it.  For more information click on RESNET HERS Index

Steve Baden, executive director of RESNET lauded Beazer Homes’ leadership for improving the energy performance of new homes.  “Today’s new homes are much more efficient in comparison to homes built just a decade ago.  These homes are more affordable to maintain, comfortable and have a higher value.  Thanks to leaders like Beazer Homes, builders are increasing the energy performance of the homes they build.  This is good for consumers, the environment, the local economy and our national security.”
