What is a HERS Rating?
A HERS index score rates a house on its energy efficiency. This is particularly useful when a home was recently built or is about to be sold. Knowing how energy efficient the home is can inform useful improvements to ultimately help a homeowner increase their energy savings.
Why Choose Infrared Diagnostic for Your HERS Rating?
When engaging Infrared Diagnostic as your HERS rater, you will work directly with Flemming thus benefitting from his personal service and extensive experience. This consistency will ensure that your HERS rating project runs smoothly from start to finish.
Flemming Lund will ensure your home meets the strict Massachusetts Stretch Energy Code. He will perform the HERS and ERI index analysis, the blower door test, the HVAC duct leak test and confirm the mechanical whole-house ventilation meets the Massachusetts 2015 IECC code requirements.
With today’s Stretch Energy Code requirements of an ERI index (HERS) of 55 or less for residential homes, it is critical your HERS rater has the experience and know-how to consult with architects, builders and homeowners on the optimal design of the residential home.

During Flemming’s analysis and rating, he may also find that your home qualifies for Mass Save incentives up to $10,000. Infrared Diagnostic is a partner with ENERGY STAR, as well as, Mass Save and will process all the incentives for you.
