Elevate Efficiency, Secure Savings: Your Home's Future Starts with Our HERS Service

I have been a HERS rater since 2018 and have found many benefits for utilizing the HERS index. I have completed all the required education and hands-on training. Below are many of the benefits to purchasing/living in a HERS rated energy efficient home.

An energy-efficient home can help you save anywhere from 5% to 30% on energy bills according to the DOE.
HERS® rated homes are built with fresh air ventilation systems that ensure that you’re always breathing fresh air inside your home, thereby contributing to a healthier lifestyle.

HERS® rated homes offer better energy performance and are better built and better insulated, making them warmer in winter and cooler in summer.

The confidence of knowing your home has been inspected and tested to meet national energy standards by a trained, certified, and independent HERS® rater.

Energy efficient HERS® rated homes sell for a premium anywhere from 3.5% to upwards of 9% and more compared to standard homes.

When you buy a HERS® rated home, you’re helping reduce your home’s pollution and carbon emissions and protect the environment.

HERS® rated homes help stimulate the economy by lowering energy costs for families, industry, and businesses, and by creating jobs in the energy efficiency sector.

Inspections - HERS

The HERS® Index measures a home’s energy efficiency and there are a lot of great reasons to have a home energy rating performed on your house.

It can tell you so much about the home you live in, like how efficiently it’s operating and where you can make modifications for greater energy savings. When you’re selling your home, a low HERS® Index Score can command a higher resale price. And when you’re buying a home you can anticipate the costs of energy bills and efficiency upgrades.

5 secrets to energy efficient home

Inspections - Insulation


Insulation is key to keeping a home comfortable and energy costs low. Tips to effectively insulate your home include:

  • Locate problem areas: Many homes have little or no insulation in areas like attic spaces.
  • Check the ‘R’ value: An R-value specifies your insulation’s resistance to heat flow – the higher the R-value, the greater the insulating effectiveness. Your certified RESNET Home Energy Professional can recommend the right R-value for your home.
  • Select the right type of insulation: There are several types of insulation – each with properties and applications suitable for different areas of a home. Your certified RESNET Home Energy Professional can recommend which insulation works best for your home.
  • Seal windows and doors: This is the easiest way to begin insulating your home. Many homes have doors and windows that don’t have a proper seal.
  • Seal vents and ducts: According to ENERGY STAR, around 20% of heat moving through the vent and duct system of a typical home is lost due to leaks and poorly sealed connections.
Inspections - Lighting

Energy Efficient Lighting

Lighting accounts for nearly 25% of your energy bill, so it makes sense to switch to energy-efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs). Making the switch can save an average of 8 cents per kilowatt-hour or $45 over the course of the light bulb’s life. CFLs generate the same amount of light as traditional incandescent bulbs but last longer and use around 8% less energy.

Inspections - HVAC

Heating and Air

Heating and air is easily the largest home energy expense, accounting for nearly 56% of the household budget. An energy efficient HVAC can significantly reduce this cost, as well as reduce carbon pollution and greenhouse gases.

Inspections - Appliances


Old and inefficient appliances can be responsible for a lot of energy wastage in your home. Replace them energy efficient ENERGY STAR qualified ones.

ENERGY STAR-qualified appliances offer the following advantages:

  • Refrigerators: 20% more efficient than the federal minimum energy efficiency standard.
  • Dishwashers: 10% more energy efficient than conventional units.
  • Washing machines: use over 50% less water and 30% less energy than standard washing machines.
Inspection - Windows

Energy Efficient Windows

Significant energy loss can take place through leaky windows. The most effective to solve this problem is by replacing them with new, energy-efficient ones. A couple of points to consider are:

  • Look for windows that are double-glazed and use low e-technology. Low e-technology involves coating the window to filter the sun’s heat and reduce airflow.
  • Make sure your windows are ENERGY STAR qualified. Windows carrying the ENERGY STAR logo are proven to be energy efficient and can lower your energy bills anywhere from 7% to 15%.

If you can’t afford to replace your windows, then weather-stripping them can yield immediate benefits. In addition to financial benefits, your home’s comfort level will increase dramatically as well.

For best results, talk to a certified RESNET Home Energy Professional before making any changes to your home. They can advise you how to achieve maximum results in the most cost-effective way possible.
