The HERS Index Score (Home Energy Rating Score) in laymen’s terms is much like a home’s MPG (Miles-Per-Gallon) Sticker – which allows consumers to quickly see just how energy efficient a home really is. This is an excellent tool when comparison-shopping for a new home, as buyers can better understand which home will ultimately be more affordable. The smart option is to look for the most energy efficient home your budget will allow. Energy efficient homes bring financial savings (via reduced energy usage), increased comfort levels and higher appraised values. Lexar Homes understands this, that is why we offer an array of homes with HERS scores that are unquestionably some of the best in the industry!
