BFRC has responded to requests from its registered businesses to launch a homeowner’s window energy rating certificate. The certificate will be specific to the property and the products installed and will feature the installers name and date of installation as well as the well-known ‘rainbow’ colour label. It is the only such certificate available in the UK glazing sector.
If an installer uses BFRC energy ratings as the route to compliance for ADL (rather than U-values) then this Homeowner Certificate can be issued for the client. At the point of notification on the FENSA website installers will now be asked if they would like this BFRC Homeowner Certificate issued and dispatched with the FENSA certificate.
This new certificate will give homeowners proof of the level of energy efficiency their new windows have achieved as verified by the premier, independent authority on window energy ratings, BFRC. It can be kept by the homeowner and presented to an Energy Performance Certificate surveyor and any prospective purchasers when it comes to selling the property.
This new BFRC Homeowner Energy Rating Certificate will cost the installer just £1.50 (ex VAT).
