RESNET Designates New Energy Smart Builders

Apr 28, 2015

An increasing number of builders are taking advantage of the marketing power of the RESNET HERS® Index Score. Recently, builders from North Carolina to Colorado have entered into Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) with RESNET to commit to having their homes energy rated by a certified RESNET HERS® Rater and marketing their homes’ HERS® Index Score.

The following are the new RESNET Energy Smart Builders:

Beacon Homes


Chisholm Creek Development LLC


Collins Design-Build, Inc.

North Carolina

Home Creations


Legendary Homes, LLC


Village Homes


In making these commitments, each builder has been designated by RESNET as a RESNET Energy Smart Builder. RESNET Energy Smart Builders are leading the transformation of the housing stock towards high energy performance homes. These leading builders are committed to having all of their homes energy rated following RESNET’s stringent standards and marketing their homes HERS® Index.

The RESNET HERS® Index is the industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured. The HERS® or Home Energy Rating System was developed by RESNET and is the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home’s energy performance. Certified RESNET Home Energy Raters conduct inspections to verify a home’s energy performance and determine what improvements can be made to increase it.

RESNET is interested in entering into similar agreements with other regional and local builders. Energy raters who have builder clients interested in entering into an agreement with RESNET should go to RESNET Energy Smart Builder MOU
