Enhancing the National Consistency of HERS® Index Scores Key Focus of the 2016 RESNET Building Performance Conference

Nov 24, 2015

Across the nation the RESNET HERS® Index Score is fast becoming a part of the mainstream in the housing market. Homebuilders are having their homes energy rated and are marketing the HERS® Index Score of their homes. Multiple Listing Services (MLS) are incorporating the HERS® Index Scores in their listings and code jurisdictions are recognizing a HERS® Index Score as a building energy code compliance option. With the increased visibility of the HERS® Index Score RESNET is obligated to ensure that HERS® Index Scores are as consistent as possible.

This need has been made more important with the International Code Council adopting an Energy Rating Index compliance option to the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code.

A special feature of the 2016 RESNET Building Performance Conference is a track on Enhancing the National Consistency of HERS® Index Scores.

The 2016 RESNET Building Performance Conference offers a unique opportunity to learn first-hand about these developments that are critical to the HERS® rating industry. Nowhere else can you gain the information needed to understand the changes that will be taking place with the RESNET rating quality assurance oversight procedures.   All of the HERS® industry need to be prepared for these coming changes.
