RESNET Releases Consumer Video Explaining the HERS® Index

Dec 3, 2015

Across the nation the RESNET HERS® Index Score is fast becoming a 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.

The next effort is for RESNET to begin educating consumers on the HERS® Index hence creating a market demand.  As part of this effort RESNET has produced a short video that explains what the HERS® Index is to home buyers.

The video is narrated by John Bell, the Director of the Sustainable Housing Foundation.  A former sports broadcaster, Bell has over a decade of television experience, which included hosting HGTV’s World’s Greenest Homes, which featured some of the most sustainable homes around the world.

The video production is designed for homebuyers to ask for the HERS® Index Score of the home they are considering to buy whether it is a new or existing home.

Certified RESNET HERS® Raters and Energy Smart Builders are encouraged to link the video to their web sites.
