BER Rating Image

A Building Energy Rating (BER) Certificate is an energy label for Buildings (similar to an energy label in electrical appliances) with a scale from A to G. A-rated homes are most energy efficient and G-rated, the least efficient.


The Certificate details the building’s energy usage and carbon emissions based on heat loss through the building fabric (floors, walls, roof, door and windows) as well as energy required for ventilation, space heating, water heating and lighting.


From 1st January 2009, a BER Certificate will be required for all dwellings being sold or rented.


Newenham Mulligan & Associates are now registered with SEI (Sustainable Energy Ireland) as BER assessors for both new and existing dwellings and are now providing the following additional services –

• Provisional Building Energy Rating Certificate for new dwellings (valid for 2 years)
• Building Energy Rating Certificate for both new and existing dwellings (valid for 10 years)
• Improvement Reports for existing and new dwellings
