When it comes to sustainable and energy-efficient home construction, our team at Trophy Signature Homes continues to set new standards of excellence. With years of building new construction homes, and our dedication to quality and innovation prevalent in everything we do, we are especially proud to announce that our high-efficiency, new construction homes throughout the Greater Dallas-Fort Worth and Austin areas now have an average HERS and ERI rating of 53.
Understanding the HERS and ERI ratings
HERS, which stands for Home Energy Rating System, and ERI, which stands for Energy Rating Index, are two complementary rating systems used to measure the energy efficiency of residential buildings. These systems assess a home’s energy performance by considering various factors, including insulation, heating and cooling systems, windows, ventilation and more.
The HERS rating is a numerical score that compares a home’s energy efficiency to a reference home that meets the minimum energy code requirements, and a lower HERS score indicates better energy efficiency. For instance, a HERS score of 0 represents a home that produces as much energy as it consumes, resulting in a net-zero energy impact. The ERI rating, on the other hand, is used primarily for compliance with energy codes, such as the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and the Energy Star program. It provides a simpler way to demonstrate compliance with energy efficiency standards by utilizing a single numerical value.
Achieving an average HERS and ERI rating of 53 is a remarkable feat that showcases Trophy Signature Homes’ commitment to sustainability and innovation. With a HERS and ERI rating of 53, our homes are 47% more energy-efficient than the standard new home, resulting in substantial energy and cost savings for homeowners. This achievement not only contributes to a greener planet by reducing carbon emissions, but it also demonstrates our dedication to delivering homes that prioritize the well-being of both occupants and the environment.
