The HERS rating is the standard measure for a home’s energy efficiency, as designed by RESNET (Residential Energy Services Network). The HERS Index Score is used by all certified third-party energy-rating companies and can be described as a “MPG (miles per gallon) sticker for houses. This gives prospective buyers and homeowners an insight as to how the home ranks in terms of energy efficiency. The lower the HERS score, the lower the energy usage of the home.
