Today homes are rated on their energy efficiency and assigned a HERS score. A lower HERS score means a home is more energy efficient. Homes that were built to the code standards only five short years ago have an average HERS score of around 130. Homes being built to code standards today have an average HERS score of 100; if those homes are built to Energy Star Standards they will have a minimum HERS scores of 85.
Sterling Brook Custom Home’s standard Platinum Energy Package will have a HERS score of 65 or less. This means your Sterling Brook Custom Home will be at least 20% more efficient than a typical Energy Star Home and 50% more efficient than a home built to standard codes just a few years ago.
