A Whole New World – ENERGY STAR + HVAC Grading

Ever since the launch of Version 3 in 2010, the HVAC design and commissioning requirements have been the biggest hurdle between a standard HERS rating and an ENERGY STAR certified home. Taking all the lessons learned, EPA, RESNET, and ACCA have recently completed a new HVAC grading standard that will integrate many of these requirements into the HERS rating process.
