Schell Brothers, LLC Commits to Marketing the HERS Index of all Their Homes – First Delaware Builder to Make Commitment

August 10th, 2011 - Posted by RESNET under Hot News

Schell Brothers, LLC, a Rehoboth Beach, Delaware 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 Schell Brothers from other homes for sale in the Sussex County beach resort area of Delaware market.

Schell Brothers is the premier builder of new homes in the Sussex County beach resort area of Delaware. The builder participates in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Builders Challenge and builds homes with a HERS Index of 65 or lower. For more information visit their web site at

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
