  • State of floors over unconditioned spaces (like garages or cellars)
  • The effectiveness of insulation inside walls and ceilings
  • The amount of leakage from HVAC distribution ducts
  • Condition of windows and doors, vents and ductwork

The HERS rating provides a computerized simulation analysis utilizing RESNET Accredited Rating Software to calculate a rating score on the HERS Index.  The report will also contain a cost/benefit analysis for the recommended improvements and expected return on investment.
