A Building Energy Rating (BER) Certificate is an energy label for Buildings (similar to an energy label in electrical appliances) with a scale from A to G. A-rated homes are most energy efficient and G-rated, the least efficient.

The Certificate details the building’s energy usage and carbon emissions based on heat loss through the building fabric (floors, walls, roof, door and windows) as well as energy required for ventilation, space heating, water heating and lighting.

Since 1st January 2009, a BER Certificate is required for all dwellings being sold or rented in Ireland.
