What is a Building Energy Rating (BER)?
A Builing Energy Rating is a label very simlar to the efficiency ratings given to other household items such as fridges, freezers, and washing machines. The label indicates the energy rating of property. The rating is expressed in the form of decreasing performance levels, ‘A’ being the most energy efficient to ‘G’ being the least energy efficient.
Our Services Include:
Guidance on the most cost effective methods on gaining a high BER through the Air pressurisation test.
Advise on the best ,ethods of achieving a high BER through the use of alternative heating methods and efficient use of insulation.
The use of thermal imaging cameras which can see cool spots in the fabric of your home which indentifies heat loss in your house.
As energy costs rise and continue to be the main cost of maintaining our households today there is increasing focus on climate control. A good energy rating can both save you money in your monthly heating bills and also allows you to do your it for the environment.
