HERS Ratings - for Energy Star Certification of new homes
The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index is the industry standard by which a new home's energy efficiency is measured. It’s also the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a new home's energy performance.
Home Energy SCORE Energy Audit - for existing homes
Using the Home Energy Scoring Tool, developed by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the Assessor scores the home on a scale of 1 to 10. A score of 10 indicates that the home has excellent energy performance. A score of 1 indicates the home needs extensive energy improvements.
The Home Energy Score is similar to a vehicle's miles-per-gallon rating. It helps homeowners and home buyers understand how much energy a home is expected to use and provides suggestions for improving its energy efficiency. It also allows homeowners to compare the energy performance of their homes to other homes nationwide.
