The HERS Index is the industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured.

When it comes to your home’s HERS rating, the lower the number the better.


A typical newly constructed American home that meets current industry standards for energy efficiency is given a HERS Index score of 100. This is the benchmark against which all other homes are measured. A lower score means a more energy efficient home, while a higher score denotes the opposite.

An Existing Resale Home will have an average score of 130.

A New Home built to current energy codes will score 100.

A new home by First America Homes scores an average of 64.
