If you've been following our blog you know that we are dedicated to sustainable and attainable design. One of the many certifications we have is our Resnet HERS Rater status. This certification is recognized by many organizations, like Energy Star, as an accurate portrayal of energy usage. We use their modeling software to help us get to zero energy with our new homes, but we also use it to provide information to homeowners on where and how to save energy in their existing homes and new homes that are not zero energy. It helps us to guide our process on making the right, cost effective, solutions to move forward with during the construction process. Here is a graphic by Resnet showing their performance data from 2015! To learn more about RESNET and HERS Ratings click HERE!
