The HERS process is the same as the HERS process, with the addition of diagnostic testing and reporting to you on the following factors affecting indoor air quality, home health, and comfort:
This environemntal factor is measured throughout your home to gauge whether your air
conditioning system is removing enough moisture for comfort and protection
Normal Operating Pressures and Combustion Safety
This series of tests determines whether your home is under negative
or postive pressure during normal conditions. A house under negative
pressure draws air into it from outdoors, attached garges, and attics
- degrating indoor air quality. If the negative pressure is high
enough, combustion gasses from gas water heaters and furnaces may
be drawn into the living area. These tests quantify the pressure impacts
of closing off rooms, running the air conditioning system, and operating
bathroom and kitchen hood exhaust fans
Measurements are taken in each room to locate possible sources of low level electro-
magnetic fields to which occupants may be exposed.
Your home is surveyed for lighting quality and any sources of glaring or inadequate lighting
are pointed out.
Quantity of Conditioned Air Delvered to Each Room
On the Initial Rating, air delvery to each room is measured with an air flow hood and compared to the quantity that should be delivered.
On the Final Rating, the quantity of delivered air is measured and
compared to the quantity called for by your A/C contractor's room-by-
room heat load calculations. Then, working with your A/C contractor in
a process call "Air Balancing," air flow to each room is adjusted until your
whole house is "balanced." This process creates comfort in every room.
