The GreenHome Institute’s – “All About the Energy Rating Index (ERI)” – Free CE Webinar

January 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

Whether you are trying to make your project more energy efficient, meet or beat building code, achieve Energy Star or a green building certification, or get Inflation Reduction Act funds, the Energy Rating Index (ERI) is the way to do it!

You may be most familiar with the RESNET HERS Index but aren’t familiar with the public standard from which its calculations are derived – ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301, so we will discuss the difference.

Finally, we will go over how to access ERI resources such as trained verifiers and modeling tools so you can make more informed decisions.
