About Old Harbor HERS Raters

North Chatham Cape Cod Massachusetts

I’m Carol Hutchings, founder and president of Old Harbor HERS Raters. As a Massachusetts Licensed Construction Supervisor with over 15 years of experience in residential project design and oversight, I’ve developed a deep understanding of the intricate relationships between architects, builders, and clients.

As you navigate the new Massachusetts regulations, it’s essential to stay ahead of the curve. Beginning July 1, 2024, HERS-rated buildings will need to meet minimum scores of 42 or 45, depending on energy sources. That’s why I’m committed to providing expert guidance as a RESNET-certified Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Rater.

At Old Harbor HERS Raters, our mission is to empower architects and builders with the knowledge they need to make informed design decisions. Our role is to offer clear guidance on energy choices, helping you avoid costly changes down the line. I bring a unique expertise in budget considerations, including window selections, framing load assessments, and structural design costs.

To simulate options and develop customized, cost-effective designs, we utilize RESNET software for architectural analyses. By partnering with me, you’ll gain access to tailored solutions that balance efficiency and aesthetics, creating homes where people can thrive.

Let’s work together to create an energy-efficient future! I look forward to guiding your path towards success.
