What is the BER Confirmation and Request for Payment form?
The BER Confirmation and Request for Payment form has three functions:
- Captures the relevant data from the BER undertaken by the BER assessor and the matching pre-works energy performance estimate data
- Captures the pre-works condition of the home as indicated by the various contractors used by BER Assessor to calculate the PGEE.Allows the homeowner declare that works are completed, a BER has been published and to thereafter make a payment claim for their grant
Where an official pre-works BER is not available then the condition of the roofs, walls, heating system and heating controls prior to the grant works being carried out may be used to estimate the before works energy performance of the home. Contractors undertaking works will make the necessary information available to assessors on the BER Confirmation and Request for Payment form.
The information recorded by the contractors will reflect the condition of walls, attic and heating system before works. The estimated U-value of the walls and roofs prior to the insulation, as well as the exact surface area covered by new insulation, must be noted by contractors.
