Below is a little explanation as to how and why this is more important than you might think:-
SAP is the Governments ‘Standard Assessment Procedure’ for energy rating of dwellings. SAP, was designed to be included in the 1995 Building Regulations and it is now a compulsory component in Part L of the Regulations. Every new house has to have a SAP rating. ‘SAP’ can be defined as follows:
SAP programs are used to enter data on the size of the house, its insulation levels, it ventilation system and its heating and hot water systems. SAP rating can then submitted for Building Regulations approval and is checked by the local Building Control department.
We provide services to cover energy performance compliance pre-design, pre-construction, construction phase, completion and retrospectively.
