You might be in a hurry when you are looking for your NatHERS assessment. But be aware of choosing too fast and ending up with an Assessor that will take their time. We have written down 4 tips we think you should know before choosing your NatHERS Assessor.


  1. Check qualifications; always choose your Assessor based on their relevant building industry degree qualifications, anything from an engineering, architecture or building background should suffice.
  2. When you are on a deadline, choose for an ESD Assessor which has a minimum of 3-4 people working for them. 95% of the ESD Assessors have at least 3 consultants doing their energy assessments and will be able to respond fast.
  3. Every ESD consultant should be able to discuss certain aspects of a NatHERS assessment, ask if they collaborate together and can advise you about the best case practices when doing a NatHERS report.
  4. What about their past project experience? Can your Assessor give you a good referral?
