MHI McGuyer Home Builders to Market Their Homes’ HERS Index

November 22nd, 2011 - Posted by RESNET under Hot News

MHI McGuyer 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 MHI McGuyer Home Builders from other homes for sale in the market.

  • Carmel Builders in the Dallas and Houston, Texas housing markets
  • Coventry Homes in the Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio, Texas markets
  • Pioneer Homes in the Houston market
  • Plantation Homes in the Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio, Texas markets.

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 HERS Index

In making the commitment MHI McGuyer Home Builders has been designated by RESNET as an RESNET Energy Smart Builder.
