A HERS Rating is increasingly valuable to Chicago area homeowners, like a Miles Per Gallon equivalent rating for your home's energy performance. When you stand behind the energy efficiency of the homes you build, we’re standing behind you. Eco Achievers guarantees the dollar costs on our HERS ratings, validating your standing as a builder who is committed to high-efficiency homes that are as good for the planet as they are for the homeowner.
How our Guaranteed HERS Rating Works
We've partnered with BBWG's Residential Energy Guarantee so your buyers will save money on utility bills with your energy-efficient home. Guaranteed. The patent-pending warranty covers the additional cost of natural gas and electric utilities that exceed the guaranteed energy usage of the homes shown on the HERS certificate.
