Home Energy Rating System(R) (HERS)

We are excited to announce that we have now added the Home Energy Rating System (HERS) to our suite of offerings here at Meyer and Sons!

What is it?

In the quest for sustainable living and energy efficiency, HERS is a crucial tool empowering homeowners to make informed decisions about their property's energy performance. HERS is a comprehensive evaluation that assesses the energy efficiency of a home, providing valuable insights into its overall environmental impact and potential cost savings. For homeowners, this translates into a powerful tool that results in the following:

  • Healthier living spaces & better quality of life
  • Lower operating costs
  • Allow for comparative buying based on energy performance
  • Higher appraised value
  • Lower mortgage default risks

How it works

One of the primary advantages of investing in a HERS assessment is the ability to identify specific areas where we can overall improve the performance of a home. From insulation quality to HVAC systems, HERS evaluates various components, offering homeowners a detailed roadmap for potential upgrades. With this knowledge, homeowners can make strategic decisions to implement energy-saving measures, whether it's improving insulation, upgrading windows, or adopting energy-efficient appliances. Not only does this lead to a more sustainable lifestyle, but it also results in tangible cost savings as the home operates more efficiently over time.

As builders here at Meyer and Sons, we have the expertise to leverage a home's HERS rating to meet code compliance and qualification requirements, obtain ENERGY STAR certification, and even unlock tax benefits. Certified Home Energy Raters (HERS Raters) play a pivotal role in this process, conducting thorough assessments and providing expert guidance. 

Our expertise ensures accurate evaluations and empowers both homeowners and builders to make informed decisions that align with environmental values and contribute to a more sustainable future. 

In essence, HERS, coupled with the expertise of our certified HERS Rater, becomes a powerful asset for those seeking to create energy-efficient homes that benefit financially, while helping the planet.
