The Home Energy Rating System, commonly known as HERS, is a scoring system set by the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) to measure a home’s energy efficiency in relation to an industry standard new home which is represented by a score of 100 on the HERS Index. The lower the HERS Index score, the more energy-efficient the home. It’s that simple.

Building a brand-new LifeStyle home is akin to buying an efficient hybrid-electric vehicle. It is designed and built to be smart and long-lasting, while allowing you to spend more of your hard-earned money on things you enjoy. And you don’t have to just take our word for it. You see, every new home built by LifeStyle comes equipped with our LifeStyle SunSmart℠ energy-efficiency building package and undergoes a comprehensive, unbiased energy analysis to ensure we are building you a truly high-performance home. In fact, every LifeStyle home is guaranteed to score a 60 or lower on RESNET’s HERS Index, allowing you to know for certain that you are doing the right thing for your family and the environment.
