HERS ratings can be used to document the energy efficiency of your home. Energy efficient mortgages are available that require these ratings. This can be a final step if you have made significant improvements or built a home that is fairly energy efficient. Builders and RE pros can use this to differentiate themselves from the competition. This test is also used to determine if you qualify for a $2000 tax credit. Contact us to discuss the benefits you can get from having your home HERS rated!
