FENSA Certified installers can now get free window and doorset energy ratings (WERs and DSERs) as part of their registration package. It is totally voluntary. All they have to do is Opt In, agree to the rules and be supplied by a BFRC registered fabricator.
These new window and door energy ratings are operated and independently verified by BFRC. It is exactly the same as the existing BFRC scheme in terms of ratings, ratings bands, license scopes and windows and doors covered. Labels provided will cover windows and doors rated ‘A++’ to ‘G’.
The only difference is these new labels are branded FENSA and will have their own marketing support. These ratings will be marketed heavily at consumers in the second half of 2016 to raise awareness and drive consumer demand.
Existing BFRC Authorised Retailers can quickly and easily switch to be a FENSA Authorised Installer – by Opting In by emailing BFRC.
The benefits of Opting In to FENSA energy rated windows and doors for installers are: an easier product to sell because homeowners understand and recognize energy rated labels; installers get their own labels; it is the easiest route to Part L compliance; a listing on BFRC website (the first port of call for homeowners searching for energy rated product); consumer publicity support and recognition; installers can source glass and frames separately; opportunities to upsell; technical and marketing support and advice.
