Beginning January 1 of 2019, builders and homebuyers can take even greater advantage of the value that home energy ratings (HERS ratings) provide. North Carolina’s new 2018 energy code allows for homes meeting a minimum HERS Rating or Energy Rating Index (ERI) value to pass energy code without having a Code Official perform the inspection work. Instead, the HERS Rater responsible for completing the final HERS/ERI calculation provides confirmation to the Code Official for their stamp of acceptance. This new option saves builders, contractors and code officials time and money, while ensuring energy efficient and high performance construction through the third-party verified rating process.
