HERS

A better way of showing you the value of a new home...

Home Creations constantly seeks to build quality and affordable energy efficient homes for families across Oklahoma. Our state’s climate and environment affect our construction methods and the type of energy rating system we use. Each of our homes are certified energy efficient; backed with the Home Energy Rating System Index (HERS® Index) developed by the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET). The HERS rating is recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency (E.P.A.) and U.S. Department of Energy (D.O.E.) as official verification of energy performance.

The lower the HERS Index, the more you'll save!

Similar to how MPG tells you the fuel efficiency of a vehicle, the HERS Index indicates the energy efficiency of a home. Each 1-point decrease in the HERS Index corresponds to a 1% reduction in energy consumption compared to a typical new home (ie. a HERS Reference Home with a HERS Index of 100).

New Home The lower the HERS Index, the more you'll save!

Thus a home with a HERS Index of 85 is 15% more energy efficient than a typical new home and a home with a HERS Index of 80 is 20% more energy efficient. The lower the number, the higher the savings for home owner.
