What is the HERS Index?
The RESNET HERS Index is the industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured. The HERS, or Home Energy Rating System, was developed by RESNET and is the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home’s energy performance. Certified RESNET Home Energy Raters conduct inspections to verify a home’s energy performance and determine what improvements can be made to increase it.

The Smart way to Buy a Home!
With home energy costs skyrocketing, it only makes sense to find out how energy efficient a home really is. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that houses built in line with today's energy code use 30% less energy than older homes. Atlantis homes use up to 70% less energy than existing ones!
