Your Energy Efficiency Rating is More Important Than Ever: The Value of an EER Assessment Report from Certified Energy
How much power does your building consume on an annual basis? How efficiently does it handle the challenges of heating and cooling, lighting, and other basic demands? Understanding the energy efficiency rating of your property is important for several reasons. First, consider that you or your tenants may currently overpay for electricity due to an inefficient system setup. Improving your rating could, therefore, yield a reduction in annual costs, which could, in turn, drive up your bottom line. Second, if you’re planning to create a new structure or add on to an existing property, you will more than likely face requirements for demonstrating that the property has completed an energy efficiency assessment.
What if you plan on selling the property? Whether it is still under construction or already complete, demonstrating its energy efficiency is often a serious draw for interested buyers. Many more people take the threats of climate change seriously and understand that everyone has a part to play in reducing harmful effects on the environment. Careful stewardship of energy usage is a core part of that responsibility. Therefore, demonstrating to prospective buyers that your property meets or exceeds the standards in place is an important strategy to consider. At Certified Energy, we have a team of professionals ready to liaise with your business to provide a comprehensive efficiency assessment.
Choosing the necessary skills for a thorough EER
Partnering with Certified Energy means accessing services beyond basic reports and assessments. Acquiring the necessary certificates required by law or your operation’s circumstances is important, but so too is finding a pathway for improved efficiency. Why settle for the minimum when you could do more and potentially save money? We work closely with our clients, acting as a team member with an investment in a positive outcome. This is the reasoning that underpins much of what we do, from responding rapidly to quote requests to laying out an assessment proposal based on a fixed fee.
Some states, such as NSW, place additional efficiency assessment requirements upon builders and owners. Obtaining your BASIX certificate is straightforward with a thorough approach to the issue. However, you may also wish to seek an EER for a NABERS classification, a Green Star badge, or certifications in similar programs. Our extensively qualified team works across all these areas.
