ENERGY STAR Certified Homes EPA ENERGY STAR Certified Homes is a set of optional construction practices and technologies (above minimum code requirements) that builders can follow to upgrade a new homeÕs energy efficiency beyond minimum code requirements. Guidelines are outlined in the ÒNational Performance PathÓ or the ÒNational Prescriptive Path.Ó This whole-house label differs from the ENERGY STAR products label. To achieve the ENERGY STAR Certified Homes label, a homeÕs energy efficiency must be verified by a third-party organization. View N/A

Home Energy Score The Home Energy Score, managed by the US DOE, is a national system that allows homes to receive an energy efficiency rating, similar to the MPG rating available for cars. The Home Energy Score uses a 10-point scale to reflect how much energy a home is expected to use under standard operating conditions. Homes that are expected to use the least amount of energy (and are considered the most energy efficient) score a 10, and homes that are expected to use the most amount of energy (and are considered the least energy efficient) score a 1. The Home Energy Score uses a standard calculation method and takes into account the home's structure and envelope (walls, windows, foundation) and its heating, cooling, and hot water systems. Only Qualified Assessors who pass a DOE exam are allowed to provide the Home Energy Score. View N/A

RESNET HERS The HERS (Home Energy Rating System) Index is the nationally recognized scoring system for measuring a home's performance. To calculate a home's HERS Index Score, a certified RESNET home energy rater will do a home energy rating and compare the data against a reference home (a design-modeled home of the same size and shape as the actual home), so that the HERS Index Score is always relative to the size, shape, and type of the house. The lower the number the more energy efficient the home. View N/A
