Owner Builders

All new homes and new liveable areas require an Energy Efficiency Rating for Certification purposes. At BERA, we can provide you with the required certificate for a competitive rate. If your current home design does not meet the required 6 Star Rating, we can provide you with some suggestions for achieving this and produce the required 6 Star Certificate with these modifications added in.

If you would like advice on how to achieve a even higher Star Rating, this can be provided to you for an additional fee. Why would you want to pay this additional amount? Because every additional Star of Energy Efficiency that you achieve will result in additional savings on your energy bills year after year. If you are planning on selling your home in the future, a higher Star Rating will increase the value of your home as well, as this Green Moves article explains.
