Do I need a BER certificate to sell my house?

You need a BER certificate to sell your house. This has been a legal requirement since January 1, 2009. Some buildings are exempt from this such as, protected structures and places of worship, are exempt.

Someone who wants to make improvements to the energy rating of their home can get a BER certificate to help them figure out where they should start with their renovations. A BER certificate normally costs around €200 for a two-bedroom apartment to €250 or more for a detached property.

A1 (the best) to G (the poorest). Homes with an A1 rating are the most energy-efficient and have the lowest utility expenses. It is evaluated based on the amount of energy used to heat a home, as well as the efficiency of the heating system, water heating, ventilation, and lighting. This will be accompanied by a report. The study will point out areas where you may boost your home’s efficiency, such as installing a new boiler, adding wall and attic insulation, replacing windows, and installing a stove that is twice as effective as an open fireplace. You can find a list of independent assessors on the SEAI website.
