The NatHERS Administrator is reviewing the requirement for NatHERS Assessors to undertake Australian Fenestration Rating Council (AFRC) training to access the Custom Window Library in NatHERS Software. A final decision will be released in September 2020.
NatHERS is being expanded in the future to offer nationally accredited Whole-of-Home tools. This means that future NatHERS Certificates could also provide information on the energy performance of the fixed appliances and the overall home.
Currently NatHERS provides an assessment and rating of a home’s thermal performance (building fabric), with star ratings based on information about the home’s design, construction materials and the climate where it is being built.
