We are all familiar with BER (Building Energy Rating) but most likely do not know the energy efficiency rating of our own home. The ideal rating is A3 or higher, however older houses depending on their age will typically be rated between the top score of A to as low as G. Houses at the lower end of the grading will as a result will be much more costly to heat.
BER Rating Scales
How can you improve your BER rating?
It is financially worthwhile looking into the areas which are causing the most problems and determining where improvements can be made. This can be carried out as a complete energy retrofit or by tackling problem areas over a period of time.
In order to put a plan in place JPK Warm Homes recommend an Home Energy Audit. We carry out an Home Energy survey which will indicate the current BER rating and the areas that need attention in order of importance e.g.
Thermal Camera Survey
This survey provides a more detailed report as the thermal imaging camera will identify weaknesses that are not visible to the naked eye thus establishing the primary sources of heat loss.
