Priority Energy is an Accredited RESNET Rating Provider        

What is a Rating Provider?

A Rating Provider is a Home Energy Rater’s (HERS) software provider, RESNET liaison, and quality assurance partner. Certified HERS Raters must join a Rating Providership to obtain the software license (we support REMRate and Ekotrope) they will need to measure energy use and calculate a HERS Index.  The Rating Provider is responsible for submitting its members’ HERS and Energy Star - rated home information to RESNET and the EPA.  Rating Providers must also monitor the quality, accuracy and consistency of energy ratings and uphold the policies of the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET).

How do I Select a Rating Provider?

HERS Raters will want to select a Rating Provider with whom they can form a long term working relationship. The Provider should be responsive and able to answer questions and register submitted ratings on a timely basis.  It is important to work with a Provider who is ethical, and has a good relationship with RESNET. Strong communication, support and mutual respect are keys to a Provider relationship that will help grow your business.

  • Thank you again and you will be the first person I call if I need additional part or service from your company.
  • I just wanted to send this message to all you and say GREAT JOB!  We had a rough inspection today and passed for the Woodward Ave. house. The inspector told us "if every house I inspected looked like this one I would be out a job".

  • We were so impressed with the amount of information the Priority Energy technicians gave us during our ENERGY AUDIT.  If you are buying a house, I would strongly recommend having them do an energy audit on it, in addition to your usual home inspection.

  • Thanks for a super intelligent and deep seminar expertly handled by a staff which was a pleasure to be around. Lunch was superbly and subtly handled.

  • I have a two story home built in the mid seventies. Lots of temperature fluctuation between the floors. The Aeroseal process dramatically increased the air flow to the second floor. Good experience. The company was very informative, answered a lot of questions.
