Jun 1, 2023 BuildersGeneralProvidersRaters


Each year RESNET® looks at the trends across all homes that have received a HERS® rating. RESNET® has released its statistical abstract of homes that were HERS® rated in 2022, in the “Trends in HERS Rated Homes – A Statistical Abstract 2023”.

The report first looks at broad national-level trends in the number of HERS® ratings and average index scores. Next, the report covers state-level trends, including the total number of HERS® ratings in each state and the percentage of new homes that received a HERS® Rating.

After the state-level data, the report looks into trends of HERS® ratings in cities, including the top 25 cities for single-family and multi-family ratings.

The remainder of the report focuses on individual trends across HERS® ratings, including a breakdown of the basic characteristics of rated homes and individual building components. Various building envelope components are covered as well as air leakage rates, equipment efficiencies, and the use of solar on HERS®-rated homes.

The report was developed by Ryan Meres, RESNET® Programs Director, on behalf of RESNET’s Suppliers Advisory Board.

Some highlights include:
• 129% increase in annual HERS® Ratings from 2013 to 2022

• Just shy of 338,000 HERS® Ratings in 2022 (80% single family/20% multifamily)

• There have been year-over-year increases in the number of HERS® Ratings for a decade

• Massachusetts is number one again with 82% of new homes receiving a HERS® Rating, while Indiana comes in second with 68%

• Looking at the number of total HERS® ratings, Texas comes out on top with over 81,000 ratings
