The manual, authored and reviewed by some of the top HERS technical professionals in the country, can be used in combination with any HERS software, and currently includes specific references to REM/Rate and TREAT. In addition to thorough coverage of rating technical issues, the Manual also covers rater policies, codes of ethics and quality assurance. Although written for the Northeast U.S., the Manual is applicable to anywhere there is a HERS service.
IT’S NOW ECO-FRIENDLY! All of our actions have an impact, so we try to limit ours where possible. In 2008 and 2009, the staff reworked the publication of the manual to make it as eco-friendly as possible with a minimal impact on the cost. From a petroleum based plastic binder produced nearly 8,000 miles away, we switched to Earthbinder, 100% recycled chipboard, 100% recycled paper, made 6,400 miles closer. The paper now used is recycled paper from 100% post-consumer waste using a chlorine free bleach process. The manual is printed by Collective Copies, a worker-owned cooperative, member UE Local 264, and assembled locally by NEHERS staff.More Information
