What is Retrofitting?
Retrofitting is the process of carrying out changes to existing homes and buildings to improve energy consumption, reduce emissions and by extension - reduce fuel bills.
The scale of such a process is dependant on the age of a building, its current state of repair, level of current insulation as well as systems already in place to prevent such things as mould and damp ingress.
Domestic Energy Assessments
An energy assessment is required whenever a building in the UK is built, sold or let; it must be completed by a qualified and accredited Energy Assessor.
The assessment itself will typically take into account:
The building age and dimensions,
The fabric (walls, floors roofs, doors, etc)
Information about the services used to generate heating, lighting and hot water
Using flagship software and technical support, we provide highly accurate assessments carried out by trained professionals.
PAS 2035 & Trustmark
What is PAS 2035?
PAS 2035:2019 was sponsored by the UK Government's Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). This is the key document in a framework of new and existing standards on how to conduct effective energy retrofits of existing buildings, it covers how to access dwellings for retrofit, identify improvement options, design and specify Energy Efficiency Measures (EEM) and monitor retrofit projects.
The standard drives the 'whole house approach' including the 'fabric first' methodology. It defines the qualifications and responsibilities of individual retrofit roles and respective activities required prior to and post EEM installation. It also includes a risk assessment process that builds incrementally robust requirements depending on what requirement path (A, B, or C) the retrofit project is assessed to fall within.
It is not possible to be certified to PAS 2035:2019 in the way that it is with PAS:2030. In the case of PAS 2035:2019. TrustMark Registered Businesses carrying out work within its scope are required to be compliant with its requirements; subject to the transition arrangements outlined below.
PAS 2035 is inextricably linked to PAS 2030:2019, the new industry specification to replace PAS 2030:2017 and is the standard to which all energy efficiency installers must be certified and compliant.
