RESNET has launched RESNET Energy Smart Teams which represents a new approach to comprehensive retrofits of existing homes. The approach teams up the various facets of the contractor trades with a certified RESNET HERS Rater to offer a comprehensive solution to homeowners. Team members work together to develop a scope of work and complete home performance retrofit projects.
Here’s how the RESNET Home Energy Team works. A certified rater would undertake the initial inspection and testing of the home following RESNET’s standards. This would include the combustion appliance testing and preparation of a work scope. The contractor members would then complete the upgrades in accordance with the work scope agreed to by the homeowner. Once the project is completed an independent rater would complete the test out and undertake a quality assurance inspection to ensure the work was completed to the specifications of the work scope.
