Did you know that Lifestone Residential’s new homes that are being built in Saluda River Club have their own HERS score?

HERS Score

HERS stands for Home Energy Rating System. It is the national standard for measuring true energy costs and is certified by RESNET (Residential Energy Services Network).

The lower the HERS score, the more energy efficient the home. To help understand this rating, a resale home may have a HERS Score of about 130, while a typical new home built to code will have a HERS Score of about 91.

However, Saluda River Club’s new homes currently available for immediate move-in have even lower scores. For instance, Lifestone Residential’s gorgeous home located at 230 Otter Passage Road has a HERS Index Score of 61. That is a great energy savings – which in turn directly translates into a lower cost of ownership. To put it into dollars and cents, such a low HERS Score saves the new home owners of this particular home about $750 per year when compared to a resale home.
