Service Description

HERS verification is required only when certain regulated efficiency requirements or equipment features are installed. If such efficiency requirements or equipment features are not installed, then HERS verification is not required. For example, if a dwelling that must comply with the Energy Code does not have air distribution ducts, then HERS verification for duct leakage is not required for compliance. The following features require HERS verification: Duct sealing Duct location, surface area, and R-value Low-leakage ducts entirely in conditioned space Low-leakage air handlers Verification of return duct design Verification of air filter device design, filter MERV rating, and labeling Verification of prescriptive bypass duct requirements Refrigerant charge in ducted split-system and ducted packaged unit air conditioners and heat pumps, and mini-split system Refrigerant fault indicator display (FID) Verified system airflow Air handler fan efficacy Verified energy efficiency ratio (EER) Verified seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) Heat pump-rated heating capacity Evaporatively cooled condensers Variable-capacity heat pump credit Whole-house fan Central fan ventilation cooling systems Continuous whole-building mechanical ventilation airflow Intermittent whole-building mechanical ventilation airflow Kitchen exhaust (including vented range hoods) Building envelope air leakage Quality insulation installation (QII) Quality insulation installation for spray polyurethane foam Verified pipe insulation credit (PIC-H) HRV/ERV system fan efficacy Verified central parallel piping (PP-H) Verified compact hot water distribution system expanded credit (CHWDS-H-EX) Demand recirculation: manual control (R-DRmc-H) Demand recirculation: sensor control (R-DRsc-H) ​Multiple recirculation loop design for DHW systems serving multiple dwelling units Verified drain water heat recovery system (DWHR-H)
