Ryland Homes to offer RESNET HERS Energy Efficient Ratings

Thursday, June 16, 2011 / Ryland Homes

CHARLOTTE, N.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.  Jay Thrower, division president for Ryland Homes in the Charlotte region, said RESNET’s HERS provides a quantitative measure of energy efficiency and permits comparisons between homes. 

“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,” Thrower said.

The Charlotte 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,” Thrower said.  

In the Charlotte region, Ryland Homes currently builds single family homes priced from the $120s to the $400s in seven communities.
