Certified HERS Ratings
It's in our name because this is our bread 'n butter. HERS stands for Home Energy Rating System. A Home Energy Rating involves onsite inspections and an analysis of a home's construction plans. A software tool is used to perform an energy analysis of the home's initial design and the final built conditions.
Our Certified HERS Ratings for single family and multi-family buildings include technical support for your team. We are lazer focused on making the incentive program and code compliance process easy for you. We use Sketchup to create a 3D model of your building as a tool to communicate through the construction process.
HERS Rating process:
1: Pre Construction : Introductory meeting, preliminary HERS rating from plans, review of results, technical support.
2: During Construction site visit - Insulation and duct inspection, air-barrier checklists (if required), continued technical support.
3: Post Construction site visit - Visual inspection and diagnostic testing, HERS certificate is generated, administrative requirements completed for incentive programs.

Our process is streamlined and without hidden fees
We use tools such as Sketchup and mobile forms to complete the energy model for your project. We understand that as the project is built, there will likely be deviations from the original design.
Sketchup enables us to accurately and efficiently update our energy model through the building process. Unlike other HERS raters that charge extra if your plans change, we don't because we can very efficiently make the changes.
