Step 2: Home Energy Assessment

When you are ready to proceed a Technical Assessor will visit your home and carry out a detailed survey on building fabric, heat loss etc. Based on this survey the One Stop Shop will recommend the upgrades required to bring your home up to a minimum B2 BER, or higher if you so wish.
