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 Scores 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. A key priority of RESNET in 2016 is to continue this momentum. A special feature of the 2016 RESNET Building Performance Conference is a track on “Mainstreaming the HERS Index in the Housing Market”.
