Doing a HERS rating as you build a home is a great way to prove exactly how high quality this project is. After all, an energy efficient home is really a display of skilled planning, building, and management.
Add value to your home
A better HERS score can lead to higher resale values. It makes sense because it shows that the home was built with quality, and it shows that the next owner won't have to throw money away on energy bills.
