Building Energy Ratings (BER Certificates)

Building Energy Ratings (BER Certificates)
We can provide you with a BER Certificate for your House or building. Contact us now for more information at:

e: info@mfkelly.ie m: 085 7255 182

A BER is similar to the energy label for a household electrical appliance like your fridge. The label has a scale of A-G. A-rated homes are the most energy efficient and G the least efficient.

From the 1st of January 2009 a BER certificate will be compulsory for all homes being sold or rented. We can provide you with a Ber Certificate for your House or building. Contact us now for more information at:

More info on BER

A BER for a building will be valid for 10 years from the date of its being issued, unless there is a material change in the building in the meantime which could affect its energy performance - for example an extension to the building, a significant change to the building fabric or a change in the heating system or fuel used.

Therefore if a property which has received a BER is placed on the market within 10 years of that BER being issued, and the property has experienced no relevant alteration in the meantime, then that same BER may be used by the building owner for the purposes of meeting their obligations under the Regulations.

The Building Owner is required to provide the BER to prospective buyers and tenants. BER will, therefore, make the energy performance characteristics of the building transparent to prospective buyers and tenants. As a result, buyers and tenants will be able, for the first time, to take energy performance into consideration in their decision to purchase or rent a building.

There is a maximum fine of up to €5,000 for not having a BER cert when required.

Heres what a BER looks like:
