Each True Home receives a certified Home Energy Rating Systems (HERS) score. This score is produced by a RESNET certified building inspector who provides a standardized evaluation for energy efficiency for every True Home's customer. The HERS score compares the estimated amount of energy used in the inspected home to a typical new home and existing home. The lower the score, the more energy efficient the home.
Home Energy Rating System
The HERS Index is a scoring system established by the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET). In which a home built to the specifications of the HERS Reference Home (based on the 2006 International Energy Conservation Code) scores a HERS index of 100, while a net zero energy homes scores a HERS Index of 0. The Lower a home's HERS Index, the more energy efficient it is in comparison to the HERS Reference Home.
