Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme

NatHERS Logo

The Australian Government's Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) uses computer simulations to assess the potential thermal comfort of homes on a scale of zero to 10 stars. The more stars, the less likely the occupants will need cooling or heating to stay comfortable. Assessing a building's thermal performance at the design stage can identify simple, economical ways to make it more comfortable and save energy.

Scinergy staff are trained, and nationally accredited via ABSA, in the use of the second generation thermal performance software BERS Pro.
