  • What is a HERS Rating
  • Contact Us

  • Every new NV home is built to exceed industry standards for energy efficiency, and we incorporate several components and building techniques of our own, beyond the EPA's requirements. According to the EPA, new homes are typically up to 30% more efficient than older homes, which translates into significant savings for you on monthly utility costs.

    To illustrate each new NV home's efficiency compared to standard new homes and older, resale homes, and to help you see the projected cost savings, NV homes uses the industry benchmark Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index.

    The information provided herein is based upon assumptions and information provided by reputable sources, including the National Weather Service (average heating and cooling usage in relevant reference cities), the US Energy Information Service (annual electric utility data) and the Department of Energy (relative energy efficiencies of prevailing building codes) as well as private entities such as RESNET (HERS rating methodology) which are not affiliated with NVR. The estimated energy costs and savings take into account typical usage and costs at a given point in time for a specific model of home in a specific location. Actual savings will vary and will depend on many variable factors and a change in any of these variables or assumptions could result in reduced cost savings or higher energy costs. Such variables include, but are not limited to, homeowner behavior, actual utility usage and consumption, the fluctuating cost of energy, actual weather conditions, and home and equipment maintenance over time. NVHomes does not guarantee or warrant actual energy costs or cost savings.
