Register today for this free webinar on RESNET/ACCA ANSI Candidate Standard 310 “Standard for Grading the Installation of HVAC Systems”

With current HERS ratings, one of the largest influences of a home’s energy performance–the HVAC system–is still rated based on nameplate information, and not impacted by how the system was designed and installed.

Working with representatives of the HERS industry, ACCA, and the EPA, RESNET has drafted a new standard to change this by rewarding high-quality HVAC design and installation with HERS points. Not only will this make proper design and installation more valuable than ever before, but it will also significantly re-unify the process of doing a HERS rating and earning ENERGY STAR.

This is a major opportunity for the HERS Industry and builders. Research shows that in some climate zones Grade I installation could reduce HERS Index Scores by as much as 6 points.

On this webinar, Dean Gamble of the EPA’s ENERGY STAR Certified Homes program, Greg Cobb of Energy Inspectors, and Michael Brown of ICF will introduce the new proposed standard and explore what it means for builders and the HERS rating industry.

This is a webinar you do not want to miss. Register now to learn the key concepts behind the new standard, how it may impact the HERS Index, and when it will likely be available for use. Click here to register.
