HERS® Index Scores
SkyeTec HERS Index Scores for New Homes
For builders desiring to market their homes' HERS® Index Score to promote improved home energy performance to consumers, SkyeTec provides home energy ratings of new homes, as well as marketing and educational materials for consumers. HERS rating scores clearly differentiate the builder's homes and provide the home buyer with a better understanding of the benefits of a high performing, energy efficient home.
The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index was developed by RESNET® as an industry standard for measuring the efficiency of a new home. The lower the HERS Index Score, the more efficient the home performs. Homes that score a 70 or lower on the HERS Index Scale (illustrated below) have superior energy performance, compared to a standard home.
SkyeTec provides HERS Index Scores for new homes by performing the required third party verification services. The program provides a cost-effective means for builders to promote energy efficiency and environmental responsibility with a low home energy rating score.
SkyeTec’s HERS Index Score Process:
- Modeling, Analysis & Consulting:Our initial plan review models the home for energy efficiency and provides a preliminary HERS Index Score.
- Field Inspection: The thermal bypass inspection at pre-drywall stage ensures the home is adhering to the design specifications and is on target to meet the efficiency score.
- Performance Testing: The building air-tightness and duct system air-tightness tests provide size and amount of air leakage through the building envelope and duct system.
- Training & Educational Support: SkyeTec provides multiple, on-site training of the building practices required to meet the intended HERS Index Score.
- Utility Program Coordination & Support: SkyeTec can provide documentation necessary for any utility or governmental energy efficiency rebate program.
- Marketing Support: SkyeTec's marketing team can assist the builder with messaging on the benefits of high energy performing homes for consumers.
