Amendment of Chapter 3 to adopt the new standard ANSI/RESNET 301-2014

RESNET PROPOSES AMENDMENT OF CHAPTER 3 TO ADOPT ANSI/RESNET 301-2014 “STANDARD FOR THE CALCULATION AND LEABELING OF THE ENERGY PERFORMANCE OF LOW-RISE RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS USING THE HERS INDEX”

RESNET initiated a project in 2012 to redevelop essential technical requirements of the Mortgage Industry National Home Energy Rating System standard, Chapter 3 in a form that would be approved by ANSI as an American National Standard. The project produced the recently approved ANSI/RESNET 301-2014, Standard for the Calculation and Labeling of the Energy Performance of Low-Rise Residential Buildings using the HERS Index. In keeping with its intent RESNET will amend Chapter 3 of the Mortgage Industry National HERS standard to adopt the American National Standard ANSI/RESNET 301-2014 together with criteria essential to its implementation within the RESNET system.
