The Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) provides building energy performance ratings and information to help improve Australian homes. By understanding how energy is used to heat and cool a home, NatHERS helps to make Australian homes more comfortable and helps residents to save on energy bills through smarter design choices.
NatHERS is administered by the Australian Government on behalf of the states and territories.
The NatHERS assessor handbook has been developed to help assessors to navigate the NatHERS assessment process by describing how assessments should be conducted.
It’s important that the handbook is clear and understandable for assessors. Biotext worked with the Department of Environment and Energy, in collaboration with industry experts, to write and edit the handbook to ensure that it is as useful as possible.
