A BER indicates the energy performance of a property. (BER Offaly, BER Tullamore, BER Cert Offaly)
It covers energy used for heating, heating of water, ventilation/air conditioning and lighting.
A BER is similar to the energy labels you find on appliances for the home eg. Fridges. (BER Offaly, BER Tullamore)
The BER certificate has a scale of A-G. A-rated homes are the most energy efficient and will tend to have lower energy bills.
A BER certificate is compulsory for all homes being sold or offered for rent in Offaly. If you are buying or renting a house or apartment in Offaly, you are entitled to see the BER so ask the seller, landlord or agent for it. This will give you an idea of how energy efficient the house you are buying or renting will be. If it has a BER grade of A it will cost less in energy bills than a house rated G for example. (BER Offaly, BER Tullamore)
