Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) launched a new HERS rating program that evaluates a home’s water efficiency. On HorizonTV this week, RESNET Program Director Ryan Meres explains the benefits it offers home builders.
"Water concerns are very real, especially with the drought that’s happening in the west,” says Meres. “I think the way that HERS H2O can work for builders is that in those locations where there is the potential that they’re not going to issue more permits because they can’t meet the supply, not only does it demonstrate that a builder is taking water efficiency seriously, but it also gives them a tool to use with those municipalities that may have these concerns.”
