In Washington State, Green Builder Media announced that the VISION House exhibit at INNOVENTIONS in Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort has had its HERS Rating conducted.
A HERS rating—fast becoming as ubiquitous as the MPG sticker on a car—analyzes how energy efficient a home is in comparison to other similar homes. It provides a measure of the energy use of the home based on its specific physical characteristics and systems. The lower the score, the less energy the home uses.
The HERS rating was conducted after BioBased Insulation Open Cell spray polyurethane foam insulation from BioBased Technologies had been installed, completing the exhibition home’s energy envelope.
