Save money on your heating bills
It makes sense to get a Building Energy Rating BER done on your home. The energy efficiency of a building is a measure of how much money you can save on your heating bills. According to research done by Electric Ireland The average 3 bedroom semi detached house built before 2004 would more than likely have an 'E1' Building Energy Rating BER rating. The annual cost of heating such a home could be as high as €2450. A home with a BER rating of 'C', on the other hand would probably cost around €1300. So you can see that substantial savings can be made by improving your energy efficiency.
