Quail Homes Commits to Marketing the HERS Index of all Their Homes Built in Oregon and Washington

August 9th, 2011 - Posted by RESNET under Hot News

Quail Homes , a Vancouver, Washington based homebuilder  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 Quail Homes from other homes for sale in the Oregon and Washington markets.

Quail Homes has built homes  in Oregon and Washington for over twenty years. Quail Homes is focused on energy efficiency, indoor air quality and health, water conservation methods, and the procurement of eco-friendly building materials.   For morre information visit their web site at http://www.quailhomes.com/About/about-quail-homes.aspx

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

RESNET is interested in entering into similar agreements with other regional and local builders. Energy raters who have builder clients interested in entering into an agreement with RESNET should contact Steve Baden at sbaden@resnet.us
