PEA Certificates - What is a Predicted Energy Assessment?
If you're planning on building a new home, you will need to provide a Predicted Energy Assessment. This they can look at exactly what these PEA certificates are and why you need them.
When you want to buy a new building you need to adhere to certain guidelines. This includes the energy efficiency guidelines for all builders. The guidelines will depend on the building you are planning, along with a few other factors. But it’s important to be able to determine what the energy consumption of a building will be before it’s being built.
These assessments are referred to a PEA Certificate. PEA stands for a Predicted Energy Assessment. It basically outlines what the environmental impact of the building will be. This is important since you need to adhere to the limits set for your specific industry.
If you are building a commercial building, you’ll need a commercial PEA Certificate. This is true even if you will be renting out the building to tenants. A commercial certificate need to outline how energy efficient the building will be, before you sold or rent it out. These certificates are produced according to specific standards for the commercial building industry.
For a public building you’ll need a Display Energy Certificate (DEC). These certificates are important to have to be compliant. That’s why it’s important to know about these guidelines.
