HERS Ratings

The HERS (Home Energy Rating System) was developed by the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) for inspecting and calculating a home's energy efficiency.

What the Numbers Mean

  • The lower a home's rating, the more energy efficient it is.
  • A typical existing home earns a rating of 130 on the HERS Index.*
  • The HERS reference home has a rating of 100.*
  • Sage Homes average 56 on the HERS Index**

Money-wise, a HERS rating of 60 can result in $1,257 in annual energy savings compared to an existing home. 

For the home buyer, HERS makes the process of finding an energy efficient home more feasible since you can easily understand the ratings, and get an apple-to-apple comparison of the efficiency of one home versus another.
