What is the ****HERS® Index?
The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index is the industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured and rated. It’s also the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home’s energy performance.
When we help you with your next new home, renovation, or home addition, we want to meet certain guidelines to help lower energy, water use and conserve resources, with energy efficiency being 15% – 30% greater than previous requirements.
Resource conservation standards mean that adhesives, paints, and coatings must have little or no volatile organic compounds; heating and air filters must meet minimum requirements for particulate filtration; and construction waste must be reduced by 50%. Water Conservation efforts will entail reducing indoor water use by 20%.
What is ****Energy Star®?
ENERGY STAR is the simple choice for energy efficiency. For more than 20 years, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR program has been America’s resource for saving energy and protecting the environment.
Whether you’re looking to build a new home, renovate a house, or upgrade your home to keep up with your family for years to come, let us help you save some green by going green. Look to replace old fixtures and appliances with energy efficient models like low flow toilets and shower heads and CFL or LED lighting.
Whatever direction you plan to take your home remodeling adventure, we’re here to make it stress-free, reliable, and beautiful.
