Getting a new HVAC system? Ask for your CHEERS report.

Nearly half of all home energy use goes to heating and cooling. The State of California requires newly installed or replaced HVAC systems to be permitted and independently tested for proper operation and efficiency by a HERS Rater.

Working with the State of California, CHEERS operates an online verification platform where HVAC contractors, HERS Raters, and others upload information related to HVAC replacement and other residential building projects.

A CHEERS report summarizes the performance of your new HVAC system and is available to your HVAC contractor at no cost once all State of California energy code requirements have been met. Ask for your CHEERS report!

Why get a CHEERS report?

Higher Home Value

A permitted, properly installed, and HERS inspected HVAC system lowers home energy costs and protects your home’s resale value.

Independent Testing

A CHEERS report ensures your new HVAC system has been independently tested by a HERS Rater and is operating efficiently. This translates to lower utility bills and a more comfortable home.

It’s The Law

HVAC system replacements must comply with California Building Code, requiring a building permit and independent HERS testing. A CHEERS report ensures your new HVAC system meets State of California requirements.
