Draft PDS-01 Proposed MINHERS® Addendum 50: HERS® Modeler 7/1-8/14/2020

Jun 26, 2020

Comment Period July 1, 2020 – August 14, 2020

Proposed Addendum 50 amends the RESNET Mortgage Industry National Home Energy Rating Standards (MINHERS) Chapter 2 to add criteria for a new certification category, the HERS® Home Energy Modeler. This new certification category was authorized by the RESNET Board of Directors with the intent of improving consistency of modeling homes for HERS® ratings. Certification will require training of persons who conduct the modeling and analysis of home energy performance using accredited HERS® Software Tools and demonstration of proficiency with the specific software used by the modeler.
