The HERS rating is a nationally recognized scoring system that measures a home’s energy performance. It can be used for both new construction and existing homes. This system is used by banks and by the IRS to award qualifying homes with a federal tax credit, and reduced home mortgage interest rates, along with the ability to wrap energy efficient upgrade costs into your mortgage. The financial saving, due to reduced energy use, that a HERS rating demonstrates is counted as income for the borrower who is trying to qualify for a home loan.
