Ryland Homes to offer RESNET HERS Energy Efficient Ratings

Tuesday, June 28, 2011 / Ryland Homes

Charleston / Myrtle Beach, S.C. --- Ryland Homes has entered into an agreement with RESNET to provide new home buyers an important measurement of long-term energy performance of each new home Ryland builds.  The intent of the agreement is to raise consumers’ knowledge of new home energy performance by using RESNET’s HERS Index.  Use of the HERS Index will differentiate homes built by Ryland from other builders in the market.

RESNET – the Residential Energy Services Network – is a nationwide organization whose member raters evaluate individual homes using standards established by RESNET to assign an efficiency rating.  Don McDonough, division president for Ryland Homes in the Charleston-Myrtle Beach region, said RESNET’s HERS provides a quantitative measure of energy efficiency and permits comparisons between homes,” McDonough said.

It is expected that Ryland’s agreement with RESNET will serve as a model to other local and regional builders that would have positive outcomes for consumers and the new home industry.  The Charleston Division of Ryland Homes commits to having the homes it builds energy rated by a RESNET certified Home Energy Rater who will provide a rating label on every new home built.

“Ryland Homes has long been a leader in developing highly energy-efficient new home designs, engineering and construction techniques that reduce the home’s energy footprint and impact on the environment,” McDonough said.  

In the Charleston-Myrtle Beach region, Ryland Homes currently builds single family and town homes priced from the $120s in 10 communities.
