What is a BER rating?

You may have heard about a BER rating on properties, but not been sure exactly what that meant. Put simply, BER stands for Building Energy Rating, and it signifies how energy efficient a property is. Properties are graded on a scale of A to G, with A-rated homes being the most energy efficient, making them more likely to have lower energy bills.

So how does this affect you? As a prospective buyer or renter, you want the property to have the highest BER possible. As mentioned, a high rating usually means that the property has lower energy bills, which of course saves you money in the long run. So if you’re torn between two properties, looking at their BER might help you decide which one will cost you less in the long run.
