All dwellings – newly constructed or existing – who are sold or rented must have an official Building Energy Rating (BER).
This is a standard calculation of the energy performance of a building, produced by a qualified assessor, not unlike the efficiency rating given to white goods such as freezers, fridges and washing machines.
An “A”-rated property will be the most energy efficient and will tend to have the lowest energy bills a “G”-rated property is the worst.
Retrofit and refurbishments
Implementing renewable energy solutions will assist you in improving the BER rating
of your property. This BER - an independent grant-aided energy assessment - is advised in all retrofit or refurbishment situations to gain a proper impartial understanding of your exact requirements and product suitability.
There is no doubt that with the advanced systems that Glenview Heating can offer, there is a suitable sustainable solution for most building types and existing heating systems.
Implementing renewable energy systems will have a positive effect on reducing your heating bills and improving your living environment.
Combining your old heating system with renewables
Occasionally, in colder conditions, there will be times when the renewable solution combined with your existing boiler will take care of the heating of your property.
A build-in control system will automatically take care of the new and existing heating system to provide you with the comfort you need.
“Your earth today, your children’s tomorrow”
Sustainable energy refers to a way we can use and generate energy that is more efficient and less harmful to the environment. We need to think, act and start changing our ways regarding energy consumption. We can do this by being more efficient in how we use energy and by implementing renewable energy systems.
Apart from cost-savings the other main benefit of using renewable energy is the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. Changing our ways and installing innovative
heating solutions will reduce the emission of harmful greenhouse gases and our reliance on expensive fossil fuels. Thereby protecting our delicate planet for our children.
Safer, healthier and cost-effective
There is no doubt Renewable Energy is safer, healthier and environmentally friendly but, most of all, very cost-effective. Depending on the chosen solution, whether a wood pellet boiler, heat pump, solar or other option the running cost of heating your house or business will be reduced and this saving can be as high as 70% according to recent calculation models.
Sustainable Energy Ireland (SEI) can assist you in calculating your savings. For more information www.sei.ie Renewable Energy will save you money.

The annual cost of heating a building mainly depends on:
• Fuel price
• Fuel energy content
• Temperature levels maintained
• Duration of heating
• Weather conditions
• Levels of insulation and draught sealing
• Seasonal efficiency of the heating system
How much you actually can save is different for each house and depends totally on your situation. A new house or old, well-insulated or not, the level of warmth that is comfortable for you and how much hot water you use are only a few issues that need to be assessed before you know how much you can save. But there is no doubt that Renewable Energy will save you money.
Fuel Cost Comparison
Download the SEI Fuel Cost Comparison sheets which are designed to allow you to make reasonable comparisons between the cost performances of various fuels used for domestic space heating.
For clarity and consistency, these tables compare heating costs on a common base of cost per useful unit of heat output to a room or space (cent per kilowatt hour or c/kWh).
