What is a Building Energy Rating?

A building energy rating is a rating on the overall energy efficiency of a building . The rating is similar to the energy label on your fridge and is denoted on scale of A to G, with A1 being the most energy efficient and G being the least energy efficient.

Air Tightness Testing

The Smart Energy Store provides an air tightness testing service for new and existing dwellings. An air tight home can significantly reduce your heating bills.
Since January 2008 all new one off Dwellings are required by regulations to have an Air Tightness Test completed.
Why use the Smart Energy Store
The Smart Energy Store assessors include highly qualified Civil and Mechanical engineers who have undergone the most rigorous training programme in the marketplace. They have many years experience in air tightness testing and the construction industry. We have tested various houses to passive standard.

• We can give you a provisional air tightness figure on site and pinpoint exactly where air is being lost out of the building.
• As the leaks are being sealed we can give the improvement in the air tightness figure
• We can advise on how to achieve an air tightness level from the high end for passive houses or just to meet building regulations
• We strive to get the best air tightness rating possible to suit the building. Book now for a quality service, with competitive rates, and a fast turnaround.

Why perform an Air Tightness Test

Air tightness testing measures the flow of air within a building with the aim of identifying areas of the home that are experiencing heat loss. In other words it measures how well the building is sealed and is a good benchmark during construction to the quality of build.
To build an energy efficient house and to comply with the Building Regulations Part L 2008 an air tightness test is essential. By performing an air tightness test, heat loss due to air leakage can be limited, thus helping to save energy and most importantly reducing energy bills

Thermal Imaging

A large portion of the energy used in homes is wasted due to insufficient insulation and a lack of weather stripping around doors and windows. Removing unnecessary heat loss can significantly reduce energy costs. Thermal Imaging surveys, using infra-red images, can identify where the most heat is being lost from buildings. Infra red technology is a crucial area of expertise which enables us to identify defects in the building which are normally hidden to the human eye.
BCD Energy can help you save Energy AND Money

Our professional home inspectors and energy auditors use cutting-edge infrared technology to perform energy auditing of homes and buildings to improve energy efficiency, helping you to save on energy costs.
Our building energy rating assessors are able to externally or internally survey a building and identify problem areas such as:

• Insufficient, missing, damaged or improperly installed insulation in walls and roofs
• Heat loss through un-insulated pipe work
• Identify underfloor heating pipe runs
• Air leakage
• Moisture or mould growth
• Defects in radiators and underfloor heating
• Leaks in underground pipes
