What is Bettendorf, IA HERS Testing Rating?

A HERS Rating assigns a score to the home being evaluated on a scale from 0-150. The lower the number, the less energy consumption. A HERS score of 0 represents a “zero energy home,” which produces at least as much energy as it consumes. The higher the number, the more energy consumption. A standard new home would receive a score of around 100, and most existing homes fall somewhere between 100 and 150.

A few reasons why HERS Testing is beneficial include:

  • An energy rating is mandatory in order to qualify for an energy efficient mortgage (EEM).
