What is a BER?

A Building Energy Rating or BER is an energy label with an accompanying advisory report for homes.

The rating is a simple A to G scale. A-rated homes are the most energy-efficient and will tend to have the lowest energy bills.

BER Cert Advisory Report A BER makes the energy performance of a home visible to prospective buyers and tenants allowing them to take energy performance into consideration in their purchase or rental decision.

The Advisory Report identifies potential energy performance improvements that could lead to better comfort levels, reduced energy use and costs.

A BER is valid for up to 10 years provided that there is no material change to the home that could affect the energy performance. A Provisional BER, derived from the plans for an as yet unbuilt home, has a maximum validity of 2 years.


Why should I improve my BER rating?

Improving the Building Energy Rating (BER) of your home can make it warmer, reduce your energy costs, and even improve its appeal to buyers or tenants. Your home will be better performing, more comfortable and carbon emissions will decrease. “The less energy you use to heat your home, the more you save and the better it is for the environment,” says Stuart Hobbs, director of energy services with SSE Airtricity.
