New Law: Energy Efficient Homes Encouraged: CA Home Energy Rating System (HERS)

Janes Village area home, Altadena CA

Janes Village area home, Altadena CA

A new law authorizes a home inspection to include, if requested by the client, a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Program energy audit.  A HERS inspection helps homeowners to determine the energy efficiency of their home and ways to improve it.

The California Association of Realtors (CAR) has a rebate program for buyers who perform HERS audits during the home inspection.  Information on CARs energy audit program with rebates up to $250.00

For more information about the California Energy Commission’s regulations, standards, and approved HERS provider, go the CA Energy Commission Web Site.

Realtors are encouraged to notify homebuyers of the opportunity for a HERS inspection and information of the program is included in CARS’s new combined Environmental Hazards Booklet.

Added Sections 7199.5 and 7199.7 to the CA Business and Professions Code.
