Question 2. Why do I have to obtain an Energy Rating Certificate?

Every new build, and major renovation, is required to comply with the National Contruction Code's Energy Efficiency Provisions.  The most common way this compliance is achieved is through obtaining a NatHERS Energy Star Rating Certificate for the design.  A less common method is via the "Deemed to Satisfy" method.  At BERA, we are able to help you decide which method is best for your project, and then produce the required Star Rating or Deemed to Satisfy Report.
