When do you need a Display Energy Certificate?

A Display Energy Certificate (DEC) is required for a building with a total useful floor area of over 1,000 square meters, that is occupied by a public authority or an institution that provides a public service to a large number of persons and is therefore visited by those persons.  The certificate is valid for one year and the accompanying Advisory Report is valid for seven years.

A DEC shows the actual energy usage of a building, the Operational Rating, and it helps the public to see the energy efficiency of the building.  It is based on the energy consumption recorded by gas, electricity and other meters.  A DEC should be clearly displayed at all times and clearly visible to the public.  It is also accompanied by an Advisory Report that lists cost effective measures to improve the energy rating of the building. 

Completing the form above will instantly give you a set of contact details from Energy Assessors who specialise in providing Display Energy Certificates.  You will be able to make direct contact with them to discuss your requirement in detail.  Before appointing a supplier and placing an order it is wise to ensure that your chosen supplier has satisfactory qualifications, accreditation, experience and insurance to provide the level of service that you require.

I was given an appointment within 3 working days Service was factual, knowledgeable and attention to details. It was great value for money. The whole organisation from the first phone call to the report I received was excellent, particularly the Surveyor (Ramon) who was professional and impartial.
