Thermal Performance Assessment

What is a Thermal Performance Asessment?

A building thermal performance assessment also known as a House Energy Rating makes it easier to boost the environmental performance of new house designs and ensure compliance with the appropriate sustainability regulation or assessment scheme.

Using BERsPro software heating and cooling energy levels are assessed with the ulimate goal of making a home stay naturally cool in summer and warm in winter. The software simulates the climate zone and orientation of the dwelling over one year of weather conditions.

The plans are scanned into the program and a model of the dwelling is built up on the scaled floor plan drawing set.

To conduct a thermal performance assessment requires specific information to be supplied from the drawing sets of the plans. These include:
