Energy Rating Consultant

By Jamie Bonnefin on Jul 1, 2022 12:37:09 PM

You might be in a hurry when you are looking for an energy rating consultant for your NatHERS. But be aware of choosing too fast and ending up with a consultant that will not deliver quick results. We have written 4 tips we think you should know before choosing your energy rating consultant.

  1. Check qualifications; always choose your consultant based on their relevant building industry degree qualifications, anything from engineering, architecture, or building background should suffice.
  2. When you are on a deadline, choose 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?
