E-mailed myhome re a particular agent in my area not listing these. Surprised to get a response

'All agents have been notified of the requirement for BERs. I will pass this to the relevant account manager to follow it up with them.'

Amusing that they are more interested in enforcing the law than the organisation legally obliged to enforce the law is.

Interested? They're the one's publishing the ads with no BER.

Well the EAs are publishing them using MyHome's website, but I guess a simple enough fix would be for MyHome to make the BER a compulsory field. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say that MyHome are affecting to be more interested in applying the law than the regulator is.

Domestic Building Energy Ratings
Quarter 3 2014

http://www.cso.ie/en/releasesandpublica ... rter32014/


Quote:
29% of dwellings built in 2010-2014 have an A Energy Rating

Over half a million dwellings (515,732) had a Building Energy Rating audit conducted between January 2009 and September 2014 (see Table 1). The energy audits show that considerable changes have occurred in the characteristics of recently built housing stock and that the type and age of dwelling are the key determinants of energy efficiency.

I suppose they should know how to lie with statistics :)

An alternative headline might read "Of the almost 500k properties assessed 7,283 properties were built in the period 2010-2014 of which 29% (2,112) have an A rating bring the total to almost 1%"

Domestic Building Energy Ratings
Quarter 4 2014

http://www.cso.ie/en/releasesandpublica ... rter42014/

Quote:
105,539 dwellings had a Building Energy Rating (BER) audit conducted in 2014, the highest annual total since the rating scheme was introduced. This brought the total number of BER audits up to 544,621 conducted between January 2009 and December 2014 (see Table 1). The energy audits show that considerable changes have occurred in the characteristics of recently built housing stock and that the type and age of dwelling are the key determinants of energy efficiency.


Quote:
a BER rating of C or better was given to just 21% of buildings constructed prior to 1977. Conversely only 23% of buildings constructed since 2000 have received a BER rating of D or worse.

I guarantee you that greater than 23% of buildings produced since 2000 have a rating of D or worse but they weren't the ones presented for sale forcing a BER to be done.
the apartments with electric heating can achieve a D rating for example, mine couldn't anyhow.

Domestic Building Energy Ratings
Quarter 1 2015


http://www.cso.ie/en/releasesandpublica ... rter12015/

Quote:
In the first quarter of 2015 a total of 21,953 Building Energy Rating (BER) audits were conducted on dwellings, bringing the cumulative total of BER audits conducted since January 2009 to 566,574 (see Table 1). The energy audits shows that 36% of recently constructed (2010-2015) dwellings had an A energy rating while a further 57% of recently constructed dwellings had a B energy rating (See Table 2).

Domestic Building Energy Ratings
Quarter 3 2015

http://www.cso.ie/en/releasesandpublica ... rter32015/

Quote:
Around 94% of dwellings built during 2010-2015, that have had a BER assessment, were awarded either an A or B rating (around 10,800 dwellings were built in this period and have a BER rating). In contrast only 37% of dwellings with a BER rating that were constructed during 2005-2009 have an A or B rating (there are 105,700 dwellings in this period that have a BER rating). The impact of changes in the Building Regulations in recent years has been a key factor in improvements in the distribution of BER ratings.

A lot of new-ish apartments with electric heating manage a D (most of the lower-end Grand Canal Docks blocks are electric, and almost none go below D), and a very few a C3. They don't really go much higher than that, though.

Also there is basically nothing you can do to an apartment to improve BER, the reason for electric heating is simplicity and insurance for the block being cheaper.
There are possibilities of a whole block getting a shared oil boiler or solar water but its impossible get all owners in a block to agree.

They don't all need to agree :)

In some cases a simple majority will do or at the extreme a 75% majority where memo and articles need to be changed. Than it is merely a case of levying each apartment owner.
