New Dwellings, Building Energy Rating Certificate (BER)
From the 1st January 2007 all new dwellings require a BER Certificate prior to occupancy. The earlier a BER assessment is carried out in the design stage, the easier it is to incorporate more energy efficient materials and technologies. There is a maximum fine of up to €5,000.00 for not having a BER Cert when required
What are the benefits of a BER?
A BER rates the energy performance of a dwelling on a scale of A to G, for prospective buyers and tenants. ‘A’ being the most energy efficient, thus enabling them to take energy efficiency into consideration in their next house purchase or rental decision.
