BFRC issue 25,000th Homeowner energy efficiency certificate

  • 22 Feb 2016

BFRC has issued its 25,000th Homeowner energy efficiency certificate – the only certificate of its kind available in the UK glazing sector.

The BFRC Homeowner certificate gives homeowners proof of the level of energy efficiency of the windows and doors they have ordered verified by an independent authority. 

Each certificate is specific to the property and the products installed. The certificate features the installers name and date of installation in addition to the well-known ‘rainbow’ colour later.

If an installer uses BFRC energy ratings as the route to compliance for ADL, then the Homeowner certificate can be issued for the client along with a FENSA certificate. It can be kept b the homeowner and presented to an Energy Performance Certificate surveyor and to any prospective purchasers when it comes to selling the property.

BFRC managing director Chris Mayne commented: “The message that homeowners need to use BFRC registered installers and manufacturers is hitting home. More and more installers are issuing certificates – and increasing numbers of consumers are demanding them.”

The BFRC Homeowner energy efficiency certificate costs the installer £1.50. Homeowners are also able to purchase this certificate direct for £10.
