100% of Homeowners want their own BFRC energy rating certificate

May 3, 2019, 09:21 AM by BFRC
BFRC asked 523 randomly selected homeowners in England and Wales whether they wanted a Homeowners Energy Rating Certificate – and all of them (100%) said ‘yes’.

This BFRC certificate is specific to the property and the products purchased and will feature the installers name and date of installation as well as the well-known ‘rainbow’ colour label.  The ratings displayed will be ‘A+’ to ‘C’ for windows and ‘A+’ to ‘G’ for doors


It is the only such certificate available in the UK glazing sector.


This certificate is a valuable new marketing tool for installers.  Issuing of the certificate can be promoted by the installer to the homeowner as a value added benefit of using that company.  It will also link the new windows or doors supplied with the installation company and could facilitate ‘word of mouth’ recommendation. 


It is issued at the same time as the FENSA certificate and can be supplied with no extra administration for the installer.  Just tick the box at the point of notification on the FENSA website.  It costs just £1.50 (ex VAT). 


“The industry asked for a window energy rating homeowner certificate – and here it is,” commented BFRC MD Chris Mayne.  “With all homeowners asked wanting one too it shows how right our installers were.”
