CEE uses the Home Energy Rating System (HERS) index to rate the energy efficiency level of new construction homes. Our HERS rater:

  1. Meets the developer to review available incentive programs;
  2. Reviews plans to determine targeted HERS score;
  3. Visits the site prior to drywall installation to inspect insulation;
  4. Conducts post-installation site inspection and performance testing; and
  5. Completes post-test report and delivers a final HERS rating;
‚ÄčThe index at right is an example of the HERS index in action. Standard new homes built to code have a HERS score of 100, while Net Zero Energy homes have a score of 0.

HERS is overseen by the national Residential Energy Services Network.
