What is an Energy Rating? In broad terms, an Energy Rating Assessment will determine your house's ability to stay naturally cool in summer and warm in winter. Houses with a high energy rating will provide occupants with greater comfort, have lower running costs, produce lower greenhouse gas emissions, and potentially achieve a higher re-sell value. Why have an Energy Rating done? The Sustainable Energy Authority Victoria (SEAV) requires that all new residential buildings in Victoria achieve at least a 6 Star Energy Rating and an Energy Rating Report is part of the documentation required to obtain a building permit. Apart from the regulatory reasons to have an Energy Rating done you might choose to have your existing house assessed to determine how to improve its thermal performance and therefore capture some or all of the benefits mentioned above.
