The Home Energy Rating System: HERS® Index
The HERS® Index (Home Energy Rating System) is an index developed by the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) to measure the energy efficiency of a home. The scale is based on the standards of the 2006 International Energy Conservation Code, by which the HERS Reference Home would score a base of 100. The lower the HERS Index score, the more energy efficient the home. A typical existing/resale home score is around 130. Most new Ryland homes score between 85 and 60 – making them more energy efficient than an existing/resale home and other typical new homes on the market – even those that meet energy-efficiency standards. Measuring our homes using the HERS Index helps demonstrate how the HouseWorks® program and our partnerships with leaders in energy efficiency ensure that your home not only fits seamlessly into your life, but also into its surrounding environment.
