My HERS rater using RemRate software says installing a HRV unit will raise (hurt) my HERS score by 3-4 points. If that's true is this a glitch in the software? This is new construction with 1.09…Continue

"I'm not sure we're thinking about the right comparison here. The comparison isn't a 1ach house with and without an HRV, since it wouldn't be responsible to build such a tight house and not provide some kind of…"

"LOL, it is an energy asset score not a health score :) You want points for health you got to look for other certifications which most use HERS for the energy part"

HERS score with HRV

My HERS rater using RemRate software says installing a HRV unit will raise (hurt) my HERS score by 3-4 points. If that's true is this a glitch in the software? This is new construction with 1.09 blower door test, using high end variable speed heat pump. Question is, have any of you had this result with HRV?See More
