In the largest measurement study undertaken, an average performance gap of 60% was found between properties' predicted energy ratings versus how they actually performed. Measured Energy Performance is one of the only methods that can accurately assess the energy efficiency rating of your building and provide actionable insights to improve its performance.
A performance gap can exist between a property's SAP EPC rating and how it actually performs for a variety of reasons. Measured Energy Performance uses real-time information gathered from multiple data points to produce an energy efficiency rating that is precise and reliable, and can be easily repeated across multiple properties.
We will present these findings to you in a detailed report, which compares your SAP EPC rating with a precise measured energy rating along with expert analysis on how to improve your energy efficiency rating and optimise your properties.
Carry out the calculations yourself
If you are an accredited DEA, you can carry out the test yourself for clients, through our subscriber service.
Measured Energy Performance is powered by Smart HTC, created by Build Test Solutions.
Check your property is performing as promised.
Compare how your properties perform before and after the installation of energy efficiency measures, and identify the most cost-effective combinations.
Identify properties with a poor thermal performance and effectively plan a co-ordinated retrofit plan with measurable outcomes.
Required to claim ECO funding and a pre-requisite for many insurance companies
The assessment is performed with little intrusion and with the owners in-situ.
Small temperature sensors are placed around the house (usually on a book case or on top of a cupboard) which gather data over a 3 week period. Our expert team of energy consultants combine this data with weather and energy use information to assess how the house performs.
These findings are presented in a detailed report, which compares your predicted/ As-built SAP EPC with your measured energy performance rating and provides further recommendations.
