RESNET - The Residential Energy Services Network, created a nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a homes’ energy performance using the Home Energy Rating System (HERS).  A certified Home Rater is trained to test and evaluate a home and calculate a score.  Any Energy Star Certified new home will be tested and given a HERS rating which, besides giving the homeowner confidence in his new home’s energy efficiency and personal comfort, a home given a good HERS rating will retain a higher resale value when the time comes to sell.
