Lower Score

More Efficient Home

What does a HERS® Index Score say about a house? A lot! It tells you how energy efficient it is, provides you with insight about its energy performance and if you’re buying a home, helps you anticipate potential energy costs. If you’re selling your home, a low HERS® Index Score can help command a higher resale price.
