Energy Ratings

A Building Energy Rating or BER is an energy efficiency label with 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.

From the 1st of January 2009, a BER certificate is compulsory for all homes being sold or rented.

Building Energy Ratings are carried out by specially trained BER assessors, registered by Sustainable Energy Ireland (SEI).

  • A list of BER Assessors and full details of all aspect of Building Energy Rating is available on the SEI website.
