The International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) incorporate the use of a building Energy Rating Index (ERI) as a code compliance option within the 2015 International Building Code. The most commonly used ERI in the U.S. is the HERS Index, which is the industry standard for measuring a home’s energy efficiency and the nationally recognized system for inspecting, testing and calculating a home’s energy performance.
The actions taken by ANSI, the IECC and the fact that increasing numbers of builders in the U.S. are committing to having their homes HERS rated for energy efficiency, all point to the HERS Index as being the preferred method of choice for rating and labeling the energy performance of homes.
The following is the number of homes issued a HERS Index Score in 2016 and the average HERS Index Score by state:
|Number of Ratings in 2016||Average HERS Index in 2016||Number of Ratings in 2015||Average HERS Index in 2015|
A typical Eco Building Systems Home Using The Perfect Block™ Wall systems increases the efficiency to 60% over resale homes
