In today's episode, we're talking about how homeowners can verify the energy efficiency and performance of their home utilizing the RESNET Home Energy Rating System. Similar to a Miles Per Gallon sticker on a new car, the rating system allows buyers and home owners to compare the performance of their home to another. Listen in for some incredible insights from Ryan Meres of RESNET.
