What is a SAP Assessment?
A SAP Assessment is an energy assessment which is carried out to show compliance with the Building Regulations (Approved Document L1A or Approved Document L1B) when undertaking a new domestic build, converting an existing property into any number of dwellings, or justifying glazing in a new extension or a conservatory open to the house. SAP Assessments are also sometimes called SAP Calculations, SAP Ratings or SAP Certificates. It is from these calculations that an EPC is produced.
How is a SAP Assessment undertaken?
A SAP Assessment is undertaken from drawings drawn to scale. To undertake the assessment plans, sections and elevations are usually required. Each of the elements (floor, walls, roof and windows) are measured and this information is input into our SAP software along with details of insulation, heating and hot water details, details of renewables and anything else which could affect the energy consumption and carbon emissions of the building.
How long does a SAP Assessment usually take?
Most of our projects are undertaken in 2 – 3 days, however for very large projects or if there is a substantial amount of information missing, this may be slightly longer.
Can anyone undertake a SAP Assessment?
No. Only an On Construction Domestic Energy Assessor or OCDEA can undertake a SAP Assessment. We are registered with the NHER which is now owned by Elmhurst Energy, making the scheme the largest in the UK. We have also been named London Energy Consultant of the Year 2017 at the Energy Efficiency and Healthy Homes Awards.
How much does a SAP Assessment cost?
SAP Assessments start at £80 per unit – please check out our prices page for a full list of services and prices.
