2013 Mortgage Industry National Home Energy Rating Standards and Addenda

RESNET’s Mortgage Industry National Home Energy Rating Standards (MINHERS) are maintained on a continuous basis and updated with new editions every five (5) years. When addenda implementing amendments are added to an edition of the MINHERS they are integrated into an official version that is maintained to indicate up-to-date requirements. That version is currently referred to as the Continuous Maintenance Version. It is mobile friendly and may be accessed at https://standards.resnet.us

RESNET also maintains the formal editions of the MINHERS and the individual addenda to those editions including the adoption and implementation dates. See the links below for the MINHERS 2013 Edition and its addenda.
