What does RESNET do?


The Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) was founded in 1995 as an independent, non-profit organization committed to helping homeowners reduce the cost of their utility bills by making their homes more energy efficient.

RESNET is responsible for creating the national training and certification standards for HERS Raters and Home Energy Survey Professionals, both of which are recognized by federal government agencies such as the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. mortgage industry.

In order to qualify for RESNET certification, home energy professionals must first complete the rigorous training required to meet the high standards of excellence demanded by RESNET and agree to abide by the RESNET Code of Conduct.

On the RESNET website you can:

  • Learn about energy audits and ratings, and how they work
  • Search the RESNET directory to find qualified Home Energy Professionals
  • Get information on how to increase your home comfort and save money by being energy efficient

RESNET is a member of the United Nations Sustainable Buildings and Climate Initiative.
