As a result, increasing numbers of homebuyers are opting for homes that have been HERS-rated, and comparing them by their HERS Index scores before buying.View our HERS-rated communities and quick delivery homes

Home Energy Rating System

HERS Scale
130: Typical Resale Home

This is a typical resale home score. That means if you’re in the market for a home, this house will be at least 30% less energy efficient than it should be. Therefore, the smart way to buy a home is to determine its HERS Index score before you decide to buy. If you decide to purchase such a house, you should definitely consider taking advantage of an Energy Improvement Mortgage.

100: Code Built Home

There are still many saving measures that you could implement to make your home much more energy efficient, resulting in a safer home environment, lower utility bills and a better effect on the environment.
