How is a BER Calculated?

How is a BER calculated?

Your BER is calculated based on the energy used for space and takes into account hot water heating, ventilation, and lighting. It also factors in the number of people likely to occupy a building based on average occupancies of buildings of similar size. 

Can I calculate the BER myself? 

No, BER assessments are carried out by SEAI registered BER Assessors.

How much should a BER cost? 

The cost of a BER can be anything from €100 ex Vat to €450 ex Vat. It is recommended you should shop around. The cost will depend on the size and location of the property. You should agree on a price inclusive of VAT and remember that the assessors are obligated to provide a written quotation.
