RESNET® Selects Energy Modeling Director: A Big Step to Enhance the Consistency of the Calculation of HERS® Index Scores
A key to ensuring the quality of HERS ratings is to enhance the consistency with which the various accredited HERS software programs calculate HERS Index Scores. Too often in the past, the same home could receive a different score based upon the software program being used.
For the past four years, the RESNET Board has been striving to enhance the consistency of the calculation of HERS Index Scores. A key element to meet this policy is the establishment of a RESNET Board Software Consistency Committee (SCC) and securing the services of a RESNET Energy Modeling Director.
