Nearly 13,000 Increase in Number of HERS Homes Over 2020

The growth of the demand for HERS ratings in the first half of 2021 reflects the continued resiliency of the HERS community and the demand for healthy, energy-efficient homes”

OCEANSIDE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Despite the continued disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, supply shortages, and labor shortages, the demand for HERS grew steadily in the first half of 2021.

In the first six months of 2021, there were 150,894 homes rated and entered into the RESNET registry. This compares with the 145,961 homes that were rated during the same period in 2020. The year 2020 broke the record for the number of homes that were HERS rated in the U.S.

The increase in HERS Rating activity can in part be explained by:

• Homebuilding having been designated an essential activity by most states during the pandemic.

• The growing demand for housing, due in part to lifestyle changes, low mortgage interest rates, etc.

RESNET Executive Director Steve Baden commented, “The growth of the demand for HERS ratings in the first half of 2021 reflects the continued resiliency of the HERS community and the demand for healthy, energy-efficient homes. We believe this demand will continue now and after this time of disruption in the building industry.”
