DEAP4 provides a new and improved user experience for producing Building Energy Ratings.
DEAP4 is a new web-based technology, accessed through your browser and introduces improvements to the software user interface. This new technology allows greater potential for future developments benefiting both assessors and homeowners alike.
Benefits of DEAP4
An end-to-end solution
Not only does DEAP4 help assessors calculate energy performance, it is a complete solution for managing surveys, performing assessments, requesting BER certificates, and managing client communications.
Informed by assessors
DEAP4 offers a more rationalised interface, simplified user experience, and a better service for clients. No more inputting the same information in multiple fields, fewer table look-ups, no more calculating values - you input the raw data and the system does the calculation.
Always on, always connected, always up-to-date
Access your surveys from your browser - no need to store and back-up your XML files. To keep up with new building technologies and legislative changes, SEAI will be able to deploy more frequent updates to the DEAP methodology with less disruption to assessors.
A new approach
A survey now records what the assessor actually observed on the survey, room by room, making it easier for clients to understand and accept the findings. The system can hold all the evidence for the survey, reducing the need for assessors to store and back-up data after the assessment is complete. Assessors can choose to provide access to clients, who can then clarify areas of doubt. Assessors can use previous surveys as a template, and re-use previously entered library items, speeding up data entry
