Understanding the Home Energy Rating System (HERS)
The HERS index is the industry standard for measuring a homes energy efficiency and calculates a home's energy performance. A certified RESNET Home Energy Rater can perform a home energy analysis and calculate a performance score (the HERS Index Score) based on standardized measures. The lower the score, the more efficient the home.
How Does the HERS Index Work?
The benchmark for the score was developed based on the 2006 IECC energy code standards and is rated at 100 on the HERS Index.
HERS Index Score of 70 is 30% more energy efficient than the standard benchmark.
HERS Index Score of 130 is 30% less energy efficient than the standard benchmark.
