HERS Index Score
The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index calculates a home’s energy efficiency and is the industry standard for assessing a home’s energy performance. Homes with lower HERS scores use energy more efficiently and that saves money, conserves energy, and increases a home’s value.
In fact, homes with a lower HERS score can save homeowners between $700-$1200 annually.
To receive an official HERS score a home must be rated by a certified Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) rater. The process is extensive.
Shoreline homes proudly have a 48 HERS score, compared to the average 100 HERS score for new home construction.
