My BER is not as good as I thought it would be, what should I do?

Proof of works done previously is everything when it comes to getting an accurate BER, SEAI requires documentary evidence to prove what upgrade measures have been done to the house. This can include receipts, sign off letters from contractors or architects, and as-built drawings. The important information needed is the type and thickness of the insulation used so the assessor can do an accurate U-Value Calculation. A lot of people are now putting in heat pumps. It is so important that the heat pump installer completes the “Designer/Installer Sign Off” so the assessor can use the correct efficiency for the heat pump in the BER
