How Our Energy Efficiency Stacks Up

The extraordinary efficiency of Brookfield Residential homes is never more apparent than in a side-by-side comparison with standard homes ranked by the Home Energy Rating System (HERS® Index).

*HERS "Home Energy Rating" Index. Based on the HERS Index®, a home built to 2006 International Energy Conservation Code scores a 100, while a "net zero energy home" scores a 0. So, the lower a home's HERS rating, the more energy efficient it is in comparison to the reference home. Brookfield Residential provides an accurate HERS Index® rating for each home design, certified by an independent third-party auditor. Ratings will vary by product, community, options and location. HERS ratings for the Hybrid Home and the Energy Lab Home are estimated. Chart data courtesy of the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET®). Optional Brookfield energy efficiency systems are available on select homes in select communities.
