RESNET Releases Consumer Video Explaining the HERS® Index

May 14, 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 the first step in this effort, RESNET has produced a short video that explains what the HERS® Index is to consumers.  RESNET will be undertaking a social media effort to consumers using the video as a foundation.  This effort will be supported with the Google Grant that RESNET has received.

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