Associated Building Surveyors is dedicated to delivering quality energy ratings and design advice to builders, architects and owner-builders for all residential, commercial and modular/transportable buildings using a range of energy rating tools available to us.
To produce a House Energy Rating under the Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) qualified ABSA accredited assessors use sophisticated computer modelling to assess the thermal performance on a scale (Star Rating) of zero to 10. The lower the heating and cooling energy loads required for the dwelling, the higher the Star Rating.
Sophisticated computer modelling software provide you with the most cost-effective solution, whether you simply want to comply with government requirements or achieve an 8+ Star design, based on the following features.
the local climate and environment
the design and layout of the house
construction of walls, roof, windows and floors
the orientation and external shading of walls and windows.
