HERS Rater

The HERS Index is an easy-to-understand approach to measuring a home’s energy efficiency.

The 2006 International Energy Conservation Code set the HERS Reference Home at 100. Under the 2012 codes, the average score of a new home is around 74.

Each 1-point decrease in the HERS Index equals a 1% reduction in energy consumption compared to the HERS Reference Home.

Approved by the mortgage industry, the HERS Index Rating serves as the energy rating system for ENERGY STAR New Homes, LEED for Homes, and the National Green Building Standard.
