As a builder or contractor, there are many guidelines you should be aware of. One of these is your DFEE/TFEE figures. These figures relate to your home’s CO2 emissions, which are very important. Building to conserve the environment has become essential.
When you draw up plans for a new bulding or an extension, keep regulations in mind. You have to build your home to be energy efficient, so that you can comply with regulations. One of the measurements they use is your DFEE/TFEE figures. This refers to your Dwelling Fabric Energy Efficiency Rates against your Target Fabric Energy Efficiency Rates.
You’ll have to get a pass from a certified inspector before you can go ahead. That’s why it’s important to work with a professional, to ensure that your building plans are in tact. If there are any issues you have, you can fix them in time, before you start with the construction. This will save a lot of time and money too.
CO2 targets have changed significantly. Policies can also change every few years, so it’s important that you stay up to date with requirements. If you don’t know how to be compliant, work with an experienced builder or contractor who does know. This is important, even if you are just building an extension to your home. It’s not only reserved for large or brand new construction projects.
