Tamarack Homes Commits to Marketing the HERS Index of all Their Homes – First Builder in the Pacific Northwest to Make Commitment

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

Tamarack 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 Dettmer Homes from other builders in the market.

Tamarack Development has two divisions: Tamarack Homes of Washington and, Tamarack Homes of Oregon.  Its divisions builds energy efficient and green homes in Oregon and Washington.  For more information on the company go to its web site at http://tamarackcorp.com/story.php

RESNET was founded in 1995 as an independent, non-profit organization to help homeowners reduce the cost of their utility bills by making their homes more energy efficient.  RESNET certified Home Energy Raters have rated the energy performance of over a million homes since 1995.  For more information on RESNET go to www.resnet.us

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 on the HERS Index go to http://www.resnet.us/home-energy-ratings
