Enhancing the National Consistency of HERS Index Scores- RESNET New Rating Quality Assurance Oversight Procedures

Dec 16, 2014

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.
