RESTalk 71: Joint RESNET ICC HERS® Rating Company Membership

May 24, 2021


 “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.
