Category: HERS Verification
A HERS Rater needs to send a proposal that includes the mandatory test requirements (done by sampling: 1 in 5 per plan) and testing a separate 1 in 5 per overall of entire project. The third party certified tester (HERS rater) is responsible for testing and submitting documentation to the HERS Provider database. DuctTesters has cloud based technology, instantaneously sending documents once testing is completed, ensuring final sign off does not get held up due to testing. In addition, DuctTesters’ photographs and records all official results. Other types of required third party testing include: Solar Verification, LEED, Energy Star, etc.
On Saturday, October 7th, Homes 4 Families (formerly Habitat for Humanity SFV / SCV) hosted an “OVER THE EDGE FOR VETERANS” fundraiser event. DuctTesters was a proud sponsor and sent two of their clients, Michael Hall from RSI Communities and Mark Mandernacht from Montage Development, rappelling down 25-stories in support of the event. The Los Angeles Police Department’s SWAT Team rappelled first. You will see a photo below of LA’s SWAT Team with Judi Maclean from Homes 4 Familes. All the proceeds from this event go directly towards the construction of new homes and social services for low-income Veterans and their families.
“To date, Homes 4 Families has partnered with non-profits, government entities, and corporations to bring the outcome-proven Enriched Neighborhood® model to communities. Primarily with Habitat for Humanity San Fernando/Santa Clarita Valleys (SF/SCV) as builder, we have built over 144 homes in 5 Enriched Neighborhoods® in Northern Los Angeles County, are under construction on 80 homes for low-income veteran families, and are working with Habitat for Humanity Riverside to build 38 additional homes for low-income veterans.” – Homes 4 Families

We are proud of our client De Young Properties! De Young is building California’s largest grid-connected Zero Energy Home Community in Clovis called EnVision. The project is scheduled to have 36 homes across 3,300 acres that produce as much energy as they use, ZNE (Zero Net Energy). This will be the first master-planned community in Central California to be Zero Energy and still connected to the grid. DuctTesters is honored to be a part of this project helping De Young Properties with their energy consulting and verification needs.
Here are some photos from DeYoung Properties EnVision Launch Event.
