RESNET EnergySmart Builder


RESNET Energy Smart Builders are leading the transformation of the housing towards high energy performance homes. These leading builders are committed to having all of their homes energy rated following RESNET's stringent standards and marketing their homes' HERS Index.

HERS Index

The RESNET HERS Index is the industry standard by which a home's energy efficiency is measured. The home energy rating system was designed by RESNET and is the nationally recognized system for the inspection and calculating a home's energy performance. Certified RESNET HERS raters have rated over 1 million homes since 1995.

Today's new homes are much more efficient in comparison to homes built just a decade ago. These homes are more affordable to maintain, comfortable and have a higher value. RESNET Energy Smart Builders are increasing the energy performance of the homes they build. This is good for consumers, the environment, the local economy and our national security. The use of the HERS Index will differentiate homes built by RESNET Home Energy Raters from other homes for sale in the market. Homebuilders from across the nation have already been designated as RESNET Energy Smart Builders. For a listing of RESNET Energy Smart Builders click on RESNET Energy Smart Builders
