  • Title: IBER Consultancy Services - We offer a complete energy rating and consultancy service for all domestic and commercial buildings.
    Descriptive info: Building Energy Rating (BER) Certificates.. Building Energy Rating Certificates show the energy performance and C02 emissions of a building.. It is quite similar to the energy rating found on all new electrical items such as fridges, microwaves, cookers etc.. It is expressed in performance categories, which are rated from A' (most efficient) to G' (least efficient).. Each BER issued will be accompanied by an advisory report consisting of recommendations for cost-effective improvements to the energy performance of the building.. As part of carrying out a BER on new dwellings, compliance with the current building regulations will be checked.. For this reason we offer a.. Domestic BER Plan.. which checks the design specification before commencing to build.. We will advise and show how compliance can be met, as failing the building regulations will mean no certificate of compliance can  ...   the insulation, ventilation, windows/doors, space/water heating and lighting of the dwelling.. The calculation process makes standardised assumptions such as the number of people occupying the dwelling, domestic hot water usage, room temperatures etc.. This allows an exact comparison between buildings, regardless of the current occupier s usage.. The end result of a BER, calculates the primary energy consumption, which is expressed in kWh per meter squared per annum (kWh/m2/yr) and quantifies the C02 output in kg of C02 per meter squared per annum (kg/CO2/m2/yr).. A performance category A' to G' is assigned to the energy consumption at this point.. Additional Services:.. Before and After BER (HES 200 grant aided).. With the new Home Energy Saving Scheme in place offering grants for insulation, heating systems and BER Cert's, IBER will offer the After Improvements BER Certificate at.. Half Price.. !..

  • Title: IBER Consultancy Services - We offer a complete energy rating and consultancy service for all domestic and commercial buildings.
    Descriptive info: Commercial Building Energy Rating (BER) Certificates.. It is expressed in performance categories which are rated from A' (most efficient) to G' (least efficient).. As a part of carrying out a BER on new buildings compliance with the current building regulations will be checked.. Commercial BER Plan.. Failing the building regulations will mean no certificate of compliance can be offered when complete!.. Who is interested in BER`s?.. Up until now, buyers and tenants were totally in the dark as to how energy efficient the building they are considering was.. For the first time this will allow buyers and tenants to take energy performance, CO2 emissions and running cost into consideration.. What does a BER cert look like?.. When is a Commercial BER legally required?.. As of the 1st July 2008 BER's will be required for new non-domestic (commercial) buildings for which planning permission was applied for on or after this date whether being constructed, offered for sale or for rent.. What does IBER Offer?.. Quality assured BER certificates carried out by a qualified assessor train to Honours Degree standard.. A quick turnaround time from contacting us to obtaining a certificate.. Very competitive rates.. Reduced cost BER certificate when you avail of a BER Plan.. What are the legal implications for non-compliance?..  ...   during the construction stage.. This certificate will remain in date for two years after which a Full BER will be required.. How long does a Full BER Cert last?.. A Full BER Cert is valid for 10 years from the date of issue and a provisional cert is valid for 2 years from the date of issue.. If a dwelling is purchased off the Plans with a provisional cert, then it is the responsibility of the developer to have a full BER carried out before selling the property.. Who can issue BER Certificates?.. Only a registered Building Energy Rating assessor can carry out BER Certification.. Sustainable Energy Ireland (SEI) is the governing body over BER Certificates and Assessors.. How is a Commercial BER calculated?.. A BER for new buildings is calculated using a detailed set of plans and an accompanying specification list for the building.. An interface Software Building Energy Management (iSBEM) software package is used for this calculation process, which takes into consideration the insulation, ventilation, windows/doors, space/water heating and lighting of the building.. The calculation process makes standardised assumptions such as the number of people occupying the building, domestic hot water usage, room temperatures etc.. This allows an exact comparison between buildings, regardless of the current occupiers usage..

  • Title: IBER Consultancy Services - We offer a complete energy rating and consultancy service for all domestic and commercial buildings.
    Descriptive info: If you are building your new home imagine how saving thousands of euro every year could help pay off your new mortgage! You can future proof your new home at the design stage by planning out what rating you'd like to achieve.. Achieving a good rating can dramatically reduce your running costs and should you ever wish to sell or rent your property, you would avoid the additional expense of renovation for energy enhancements at a later stage.. With new Building Regulations in place, requiring all new dwellings to produce 40% less energy and CO2 emissions than previous regulations, having your BER plan will ensure it is compliant with these regulations and will avoid a FAIL when the dwelling is complete! The BER Plan will be requested by most County Councils along with your commencement notice.. This will inevitably rule out expensive retrofit works which may be required if a dwelling was built and found to be failing Building Regulations when complete.. A final BER certificate will be required when your new house is complete and should accompany your certificate of completion.. Future Proofing:.. Building Regulations plan to change again for new dwellings.. It is expected that new dwellings will have to produce 60% less energy and CO2 emissions than previous regulations by 2010 and pushed to zero carbon (Passive)  ...   the first stage.. IBER uses the official Dwelling Energy Assessment Procedure (DEAP) / interface Software Building Energy Management (iSBEM) software sanctioned by Sustainable Energy Ireland (SEI) to create an initial Building Energy Rating (BER) using current building regulation standards for U-Values and the client's initial input ideas.. A list of suggested new technologies and materials will be proposed for the new building.. The Building Energy Rating is then recalculated using the new building fabrics and technologies suggested.. An estimated running cost can be calculated for the building.. Estimated costs can be allocated for each improvement device/technology, to calculate the payback period of the investment.. For any technologies being considered, applicable grant information can be supplied.. A detailed description of new technologies, highlighting the Pro's and Con's can be supplied.. BER Package Deal:.. IBER offers a unique package deal for new builds to comply with current regulations.. A BER plan will be required to show compliance with 40% energy and carbon reduction.. All new builds also require an Air Tightness Test as a part of the new regulations.. A Thermal Imaging Scan is not required but is offered with this package to ensure the dwelling has been insulated properly.. Methodology; If you builder/insulator thinks that the house will be Energy Assessed, it will be done correctly.. Please call for a quotation..

    Descriptive info: Building Energy Assessments.. IBER's Building Energy Assessment has been developed for the domestic and commercial market to help find and solve heat loss problems within the home.. We use Thermal Imaging and Air Tightness Testing equipment as a part of this assessment to find areas of missing insulation and to solve draught problems.. This assessment is based on actual real life testing of a building, finding missing insulation through walls and ceilings and is not comparable to carrying out a BER assessment.. Following the results from these tests and our inspections IBER will produce a report of our recommendations on how to solve these problems and save your energy.. We operate independently of companies and products that are recommended, so our focus is entirely towards saving you money!.. What is it?.. Building Energy Assessment (BEA Basic).. A Basic Building Energy Assessment consists of a quick, hassle free assessment of your building and a typed list of improvements most suitable for your construction type and problems found.. The following is included:.. Inspection of your building, using a Thermal Imaging camera to find all areas of missing insulation (heat loss).. Air Tightness Test your building to find all draught areas (Leakage calculated and documented).. Discuss all types of energy saving devices and possible renewable energy systems.. List of suggested improvements based on knowledge and experience of a qualified assessor.. Schedule of works sheet A reminder sheet for your own record, detailing who you have assigned to do each improvement and who has inspected and ensured that these works have been carried out correctly.. Home Energy  ...   Type of current system mechanical or natural.. Grants available for sustainable energy improvements are highlighted in each Full Home Energy Assessment report, in which IBER offers their assistance in seeking.. Benefits:.. Thermal Imaging and Air Tightness Testing is the most revolutionary energy test that can be carried out on a building.. It will find areas of missing or poorly placed insulation and pinpoint draught problems.. By eliminating these problems with our recommended solutions will reduce your energy consumption, saving you money and increase comfort levels within your home/business.. The cost of the assessment is easily recouped following actions taken on the problems found.. Knowledge gained from speaking to the professional assessor will raise energy awareness within the family home/business saving you energy by the way you live/work.. How will this save you Money?.. Self diagnosis unqualified independent can often lead to clients spending needless amounts of money on improvements which may not always save the most, resulting in poor payback periods and in some cases even leading to increased running costs!.. By carrying out some of the improvements suggested by a qualified engineer, trained and totally dedicated to the energy efficiency field we will reduce the energy consumption of the building.. Our Building Energy Assessment will pay for itself from as short a period as 1 year by carrying out our improvements and could save you thousands over the years of your investment.. Second Thermal Imaging Scan Air Tightness Test.. To ensure work has been carried out correctly and to record the improved Air Tightness for entry to the final BER Certificate if required..

  • Title: IBER Consultancy Services - We offer a complete energy rating and consultancy service for all domestic and commercial buildings.
    Descriptive info: Air Tightness Testing.. What is it?.. Testing the amount of air that leaks through a building is known as Air Tightness Testing and is measured by a term called Air Permeability Rate.. This is the amount of excess (unwanted) ventilation due to draughts, cracks and poor construction methods.. Anywhere draughts are found is considered to be losing heat and recent studies have shown energy savings of up to 30% through draft proofing buildings.. In simple terms, this shows how Leaky your house is.. The process begins by sealing all vents in the building, which is considered to be controlled ventilation.. A large fan unit is placed in the doorway of the building and a pressure is applied to the building.. Areas where air is leaking through the building can then be identified using a Thermal Imaging camera.. Data will be recorded from the test and the Air Permeability Rate can then be calculated.. If a good Air Permeability Rate is found at the time of first or second test the result can be used in the BER calculations which will improve your Building Energy Rating, should you need one.. For new buildings there are many new products and construction methods to help air tightness results which IBER can help you with at the design stage of your  ...   total number tested is related to the number of units of that type in the development and to the results achieved in any earlier tests carried out.. Where a number of apartment blocks are constructed on the same site each block should be treated as a separate development irrespective of the number of blocks on the site.. Number of pressure tests per dwelling type:.. Number of pressure tests required per dwelling type.. Number of units.. Number of tests required.. 1-4.. One test.. 5-40.. Two tests.. 41-100.. 5% of dwelling type.. 100 (if target is reached).. 2%.. 100 (if target is not reached).. 5%.. A minimum air permeability rate has to be meet (10m 3 /m 2 h) and buildings that do not meet the minimum must have remedial work carried out and retested until it passes.. The results from the Air Tightness Test can then be used in the calculation of the BER certificate which will help your energy rating following a good air-tight result.. Air Tightness Testing + Thermal Imaging.. The Thermal Imaging camera is used to find where the pressurised air is leaking as it will amplify a cold spot around the area of leakage.. The problems can then be fixed resulting in less unwanted draughts, better air tightness results and therefore saving you money!..
