Draft PDS-01 of proposed MINHERS Addendum 52f: Rater and RFI Eligibility Requirements for HVAC Installation Quality Grading

Proposed Addendum 52f amends the RESNET Mortgage Industry National Home Energy Rating Standards (MINHERS), Chapter 2 to add criteria for Rater and RFI eligibility to conduct HVAC Installation Quality Grading used with HERS ratings. Proposed eligibility requirements include training and graded field evaluations.

RESNET adopted an interim version of the addendum, Addendum 52i, which will remain in effect until completion of the final version, Addendum 52f. The criteria established by Addendum 52i are shown in draft PDS-01 of Addendum 52f by strikeout and underlined text in red print.  Standard Development Committee 200 encourages comments providing input on criteria that will ensure the effective implementation of HVAC Installation Quality Grading in HERS ratings.
