 “The whole point of collaboration is that you give and take from each other, and that’s how you create things that are totally new.” – Virgil Abloh

There is a logical tie between energy codes and HERS ratings. What is the value proposition for HERS rating companies to be involved with the International Code Council (ICC)?

What qualifications do HERS raters bring to assist code officials?

May is ICC Buiding Safety Month so it is a perfect time to talk with ICC Vice President of Marketing Laurence Genest and RESNET Director of Quality Assurance Administration and Standards Laurel Elam (RESNET) on the role that HERS raters can play in the verification of compliance to Energy Codes.

We learn how a RESNET HERS Rating company’s membership in RESNET has now doubled in value. We also cover how this ties in with the IECC/HERS Compliance Specialist designation.
