Why Become a HERS Rater ?
A HERS Rater is a special inspector for Enforcement Agency / Building Departments in California. Special inspectors are outside experts that verify some aspect of building compliance for the local jurisdiction. HERS Raters verify that air conditioners, insulation, and water heaters are installed according to code. Whenever new homes are built, or new air conditioners are installed, HERS Raters are needed to verify that the work was performed correctly and the homeowner can expect the comfort and savings they paid for. HERS Raters often work with contractors to ensure that their work is code compliant.
