RESNET has made a video which explains the HERS Index Rating in a very simple way. Everyone who is building a new home should ask their builder for this. If they don’t have one, chances are they are not paying close attention to the energy efficiency of the home they are building and I would find a new builder.

As stated in the video, the HERS Index is like a MPG for a home. Its a great way to compare how different homes will perform, from an energy efficient viewpoint. The lower the score the better.
