HERS Ratings


Standard Price $695

Resnet Home Energy Rating System is like a miles-per-gallon rating of a home’s energy efficiency. There are no mandatory requirements for a rating because it is not a code or program of energy efficiency. It is simply a way to measure the energy efficiency of a new or existing home. For more information about HERS Ratings, see our Contractor FAQ Page or read the Builders Guide to HERS Ratings

A HERS Rating on a home is the best choice for showing Code Compliance as well as proving to homeowners that their new home will perform as they expect. Remember that a HERS Rating can be done on existing homes as well as new homes

The standard price of $695 (for homes up to 3000 ft2) includes the following:

  • Projected rating certificates for permit submittal
  • Pre-drywall insulation inspection
  • Post construction testing for air infiltration and duct leakage (blower door tests)
  • Additional testing such as bath fans and ventilation systems
  • Failure diagnostics (if a system fails to work properly, we will attempt to diagnose the problem, not just tell you it failed!)
  • Digital and Paper report of testing and rating results
  • Code Compliance sticker on electric service panel

Call To Schedule: (517) 712-7665

ENERGY STAR Home Certification




The ENERGY STAR Homes Program uses a HERS Rating as a baseline on top of which additional mandatory requirements must be met, therefore the price for ENERGY STAR Home Certification includes a HERS Rating already.

ENERGY STAR Homes have many additional requirements ABOVE THE CODE and require that the rater be involved in the home from the start! Please read our FAQ Page and Download the Builders Guide to Energy Star Homes. Also visit our Contractor E-Library for the checklists and other guides to compliance.

The standard price of $755 (for homes up to 3000 ft2) includes the following

  • Everything included in a HERS Rating
  • Completion of the Thermal Enclosure Checklist (pre-drywall insulation inspection)
  • Registering the home with ENERGY STAR Homes program
