Building Energy Rating Info
A Building Energy Rating (BER) gives an indication of how energy efficient a property is. From January 1st a BER certificate became compulsory for all homes being sold or offered for rent. Failure to produce a BER cert will result in a fine.
A BER is similar to the energy label that can be seen on the front of a new fridge for example. A BER is valid for 10 years from the date of issue. You can download a sample BER Cert here.
Energy ratings go from A to G, with an A rating being the most energy efficient. The more energy efficient a home is the lower the energy bills tend to be.
Prospective tenants are entitled to request a BER for a property and this can influence their decision making.
Protected structures and certain temporary homes are exempt from a BER.
We can organize a BER certificate for your property so give us a ‘buzz’ on 01-8500555 for details.
