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.

Public comments will be accepted through August 14, 2020.

The draft addendum, comment form, and comments submitted to date are posted at Draft PDS-01 of proposed Addendum 50: HERS Modeler. After the comment period, SDC 200 will consider and document each of the comments submitted and make appropriate changes. Substantive changes will be submitted for public comment.
