A Lower Score Saves You More!
One thing the housing industry still suffers from is a lack of transparency. Unlike the automotive and appliance manufacturing sectors where consumers can compare products by MPG or EnergyGuide labels, it’s more difficult for homebuyers to compare homes by energy performance. Now, thanks to the HERS Index that’s all changing.
In this issue of the RESNET SmartHome Newsletter, you can read about what a HERS Index Score is, how a homeowner can get one, and why a lower score is better. And, we’ve also created an interactive version of the HERS Index that lets you scroll through the numbers and see why a lower score is better!
So, as chilly November winds head your way, make yourself a cup of hot chocolate and learn about how you can comparison-shop for homes using HERS Index scores!
