Do I Need to Hire a Local Sacramento HERS Rater? 

HERS Raters are certified by a certifying body by the California Energy Commission and administered through CalCERTS. It's best to check that the HERS rater has a certification number that the owner can verify to make sure the energy reports and audits are valid. Many HERS raters take many shortcuts to get the job done quickly and be on to the next, but Poppy Energy focuses on high quality HERS testing in Sacramento and everywhere we service customers.

In addition to the work itself, we'll also keep you updated at every step and clean up the job site so that all you have to do is sit back and relax.

Do I need a HERS Rater for my project? 

For new construction or additions in Sacramento, a HERS rater is required to validate insulation installation (QII), Duct Testing, Flow Hood Testing, Refrigerant Testing, Kitchen Hood Verification and more. Anytime a duct is changed or added on to, a Duct test is triggered and required to verify minimal air leakage to the outside space such as the attic. Your Title 24 report, builder, permit or HVAC technician will let you know if a HERS Rater is needed in Sacramento.

There are many exceptions to a HERS inspection, for example if you are building an addition to your home thats less than 700 sq/ft, QII (Quality Insulation Inspection) is NOT required.

Some other exceptions for HERS ratings include if new ducts are less than 40' in length, HERS Duct Test is NOT required.

How Much Should I Spend on a HERS Rater?

Hiring a Sacramento HERS Rating Company is one of those decisions you'll want to make if you want to ensure that the work is professionally done by knowledgeable experts. But another common question is how much you should budget for a HERS Rater. The answer to this is that it depends entirely on your home and your verification needs.

Typical HERS Rating in Sacramento costs anywhere from $150-750 depending on the required inspected. Of course with Poppy Energy, the more you bundle, the more you save.

Getting a HERS rating on your home may help with home sales in Sacramento as it shows due diligence from the seller and the buyer will understand the homes efficiency level. We understand that HERS Ratings and Title 24 is complex and difficult to understand, thats why we're happy to answer any questions you may may have.

Igor S., Home BuilderAntelope (yelp)
What a great experience!
WOW, I got my compliance report within 2 days with an explanation of the important parts of the report and how it affects my new house. Since this report was registered, I submitted the Title 24 report and my plans with Sacramento County. No issues there. Paul also stated that they offer QII (Quality Insulation Inspection) that was needed right after the rough in stage stage. Lana came out and did an awesome job with the inspection and made a correction notice for the insulation company to return and fix part of the insulation. Had a very positive experience and would highly recommend Poppy Energy for your new house, ADU or addition.

The team outmatched my expectations
I contacted Poppy Energy on the recommendation of a previous client. After several issues with other HERS raters, I was a bit skeptical but working Poppy Energy changed my perspective. The team outmatched my expectations. The HVAC Unit for the building was inspected and Quality Insulation Inspection done within time and budget.
Christopher K., New Construction DeveloperSacramento

I switched to Poppy Energy about three months ago and I must commend the outstanding staff and quality service I’ve received in such a short while for our projects. At Poppy Energy, every customer counts.
Jonathan M., Real Estate AgentCitrus Heights

Eva T., Home OwnerNorth Highlands
I’m 100% satisfied
Poppy Energy definitely gets my top rating. In preparation for spring, I booked an appointment to check our ducts for any leaks.

Maris S., Residential Home OwnerNew Castle
Honest, transparent and professional!
The entire airflow system of my 30-year home was overhauled and needed to certify the job. Poppy energy had recently done the same for a friend so I contacted them. From the first conversation to final inspection, I love the fact that there was a system of adequate feedback every step of the way. Honest, transparent and professional!
Duke G., Home OwnerFair Oaks
Kudos to a great team
I knew absolutely nothing about the process of getting a Title 24 report compliance report for my building addition, plus I am not so tech savvy but a phone call with Paul put my mind at rest. He was friendly, attentive and quick to explain the process to me. He was just a call away if I had any questions. My report was completed in a few days. Thank you Paul, you are the best! Kudos to a great team and a job done well and on time.
Janet J., Project ManagerRoseville
Highly Impressed
Absolutely the best technical company I have ever experienced! I often do not give reviews but I am highly impressed. I had to reschedule the appointment on such a very short notice but the team was willing to oblige me and even tried to fit in to my schedule
Francis B., Residential Home OwnerRancho Cordova
Made a New Friend
I’m amazed at how quick and smooth the whole process went. My AC was replaced and needed a quality inspection, so I placed a call. Lana showed up at our door about an hour later, discovered the challenge and had it fixed in no time. I enjoyed a great conversation and made a new friend. Poppy energy came highly recommended from a neighbor. I’ll do well to pass on the recommendation as well.
Loretta M., Home OwnerGold River
Showed up within 2 hours
I just had my baby a few weeks back and then my AC unit picked the worst time to fail. After a full HVAC replacement, we needed a full duct test and refrigerant test. I’m especially thankful for the prompt response on a week day though it came in as an emergency. The technician showed up within 2 hours after and did the duct test and refrigerant check in about an hour. Thank you again Lana!
Jamie T., BuilderWest Sacramento
Excellent value for your money
After incurring more financial costs from several retests, Poppy Energy came through and helped us achieve an energy-efficient building at a relatively affordable cost. Poppy energy helped to carry out a Blower’s door tests for one of the building projects I worked on recently. I look forward to working on more projects with them and I will definitely recommend them to others. You are sure to get excellent value for your money.
Reed C., Project ManagerEl Dorado
Keep up the good work!
Paul from Poppy Energy came to do a routine maintenance check on the heat system and AC system of some service apartments. He not only did an excellent job but also recommended additional ways of extending the life of the HVAC equipment. This advice showed he had our best interest at heart. Keep up the good work!
Patricia H., Home OwnerFolsom
Best HERS raters
They are thus far, the best HERS raters I’ve worked with on any building. After the HVAC was fully installed in the building, the HERS Rater by the name Lana did a thorough job checking through air leakages, improper insulation, energy efficiency and other criteria. The house is declared fit just in time for my parents to move in. A great deal of professionalism and courtesy displayed.
Collins O., BuilderCarmichael
Game-changer
I’ve been a customer at Poppy Energy for 6 months now. It’s been quite difficult finding a good HVAC HERS and Duct testing company that I could always count on to deliver all the time. I want to say a huge thank you to the team at Poppy Energy, for being consistent, awesome, dedicated and extremely diligent at their craft. Your excellent and timely service is a game-changer
Sonia, P., Project ManagerLoomis
Efficient, Very Thorough and Professional
I moved in newly to California about half a year back and starting a new building project that required that I carried out a Quality Insulation inspection. I found Poppy Energy as a certified HERS Rater on the CalCert website and booked an appointment with them. They were efficient, very thorough and professional. I will not be using any other HERS Rater any time soon and I will definitely tell my developer friends about Poppy Energy
John M., Home OwnerAntelope
Very Good at What They Do
I’ve used Poppy Energy for my Duct test to my HERS testing to fix an air flow leakage challenge once I found out it was much colder in the attic than inside my home when the AC was on. I must say without bias that they are very good at what they do. The company is great and its employees are always courteous, always willing to help. Thus far, I’ve not had any challenge with their work. Their response time is great and the pricing quite fair. The technicians always take time to troubleshoot, and also explain the cause of repair if need be. I’ll highly recommend them.
Timothy R., BuilderRocklin
Huge Thumbs Up For Poppy Energy
The personnel who came in to carry out the pressure test on my new forced air heating system duly observed strict Covid protocols. He was very efficient, has a sound knowledge of his craft and also very reassuring. A very huge thumb up for Poppy Energy! You are the best.
Steve K., First Home BuilderPenryn
Definitely Recommend
HERS Testing, Title 24 compliance, & CF1R reports all sound like a foreign language to me but this group seems to know their stuff. They don’t seem to mind taking their time to walk you through things and they always seemed to be available when I needed them. I would definitely recommend them without question. Thanks for your help guys. I appreciate it.
Cleveland R., HomeownerAuburn
A++++ service
I couldn’t be happier with the service I received from them. They made sure to complete the duct leakage test quickly and what seemed to be very efficient. I feel a lot better knowing that everything has been brought up to the level it should be. When it comes to peace of mind the cost is priceless. A++++ service.
Robert S., First Home BuilderLoomis
Big Thanks From Me
When dealing with new construction make sure everything is being inspected properly. When I called Poppy Energy, they made sure I understood all the details of what needed to be tested and make sure everything in the house was compliant. I can’t imagine the nightmares that could have happened if they weren’t there to make sure my house was safe, sound, and working properly. They get a big thanks from me.
Kyle B., Home BuyerFolsom
Save You Money in the Long Run
When you buy an older house there are always unforeseen problems. Having this 1960’s ranch house had a lot more issues than you would think for a house that isn’t nearly as old as my grandparents. But when you fall in love with the house you gotta be careful of all the little missteps. Having a quality insulation inspection is paramount to find out where and how warm air or cool air are leaking out of your house. Do yourself a favor and make an appointment sooner than later. It will save you more money in the long run.
