HERS Testing & Rating
Our team of HERS Raters performs Title 24 Inspections throughout the state of California. We are experts in HERS Testing and Rating, we will ensure your HVAC system is efficient and up to California Energy standards.
There are three of the most common tests you’ll have performed during a HERS testing:
- Duct leakage testing - Measures the amount of air leaks.
- Refrigerant charge verification — Verifies that refrigerant levels meet manufacturer specifications.
- Airflow verification — Measures the velocity of air flowing through your duct system.
Offering complete system analysis, improved performance and control system verifications.
On new systems we work with the installing contractor to make sure the system is performing up to the engineer's design. We currently hold a license with NCI and offer NBC Certifications as well.
Our extensive field experience with the ability to identify areas for improved performance are reasons why building owners, construction managers and consulting engineers prefer CVR.
