We follow Energy Star guidelines and the Resnet testing procedures on all of our energy efficient homes.
We adhere to the "Standard for Testing Airtightness of Building Enclosures, Airtightness of Heating and Cooling Air Distribution Systems, and Airflow of Mechanical Ventilation Systems"
The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index is the industry standard by which a home's energy efficiency is measured. It’s also the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home's energy performance.
A HERS score is like miles to the gallon for a car. It tells the buyer how efficient their new home will be. The lower the score the less energy used and the lower utility bills to be paid.
