Texas Law Recognizes HERS® Ratings for Energy Code Compliance


Builders Using the HERS® Index for Statewide Energy Code Compliance

Texas House Bill (HB) 3215 updated the state’s universal energy code compliance pathway to allow builders to use the HERS® Index for energy code compliance across the state, in lieu of the state energy code or any stretch code adopted by municipalities.

This represents a new statewide opportunity for builders and their HERS® Rating partners to comply with the Texas Energy Code using the HERS® Index.
