Thrive Home Builders of Colorado is the April 2021 RESNET HERS® Index Builder of the Month. Recently Thrive Home Builders achieved the lowest average HERS score (26.9) in the country in 2020 for a builder completing more than 50 homes, and received the RESNET President’s Award as part of the 2021 Cross Border Challenge. In this month’s feature, we asked Director of Marketing Susan Elovitz to share some insight on building HERS homes for their customers. “Thrive has worked hard to achieve our incredibly low HERS scores. While nearly all home builders claim to be energy efficient, the use of the HERS score to calibrate the value of energy efficiency in a government-approved, third-party validated manner allows our customers to see the monthly dollar benefit of energy efficiency compared to other new homes or resale homes that they may be considering. We tell our customers: “Every home has a HERS Score.
