Reflections on 2019

Oct 6, 2020

2019 was a dramatic year for RESNET and the HERS® industry.

The year saw our organization and industry in sound health as demonstrated by:

Steady Demand for HERS® Ratings – Over 241,000 homes were HERS® Rated in 2019 (surpassing the record-breaking 236,000 homes that were rated in 2018)

RESNET in Sound Financial Footing – RESNET has a healthy reserve

RESNET Properly Managed – Received clean bill of health from the independent financial audit

  • Notable accomplishments that were achieved in 2019 include:
  • Enhanced Field Quality Assurance with 25 RESNET Accredited Rating Providers in 17 States and Online Reviews of all Accredited Providers.
  • Collaborated with the Appraisal Institute on Launching of the Appraiser HERS® Index Dashboard and education effort on valuing the HERS® Index Scores of homes.
  • Collaborated with the International Code Council (ICC) in adopting the new ICC HERS/IECC Compliance Specialist
  • Updated ANSI RESNET/ICC Standards 301 and 380 incorporated into the 2021 International Energy Conservation Code.
  • Completion of HERSH2O® pilot program in California, Colorado, Florida, Nevada, and Texas\
  • Completion of Pilot Consumer Social Media Marketing Campaign in the Metro Washington, DC, and Austin, Texas Housing Markets
  • Launching of New Professional and Consumer Web Sites that are More User and Mobile Friendly
  • Development of Electronic Badge for Certified RESNET HERS® Raters

You will soon be receiving a 2019 RESNET Annual Report that covers these and other achievements.  We could not achieve these notable gains without the contributions of the HERS® Raters and Providers, builders and the RESNET network.  There is much to celebrate that together we achieved in 2019, but RESNET is not content to rest on its laurels.

The RESNET Board of Directors has adopted a set of ambitious priorities for 2020. Read more here

Hope to see you at the RESNET 2020 Conference in February in Scottsdale, Arizona!
