Retrofit Assessment

Looking to improve your home’s energy efficiency in the long term, or just simply looking to live a more green lifestyle?

A Retrofit Assessment is an important first step towards making improvements in your home that will help your property become more energy efficient, therefore helping you save money, in the long term.

What is Retrofitting?

Retrofitting is the process of adding to or changing something in your home or property that was not present when it was built. While remodeling tends to be about the property’s aesthetics, retrofitting is about improving the property’s functionality.

While retrofits can be done for a number of reasons, residential retrofitting often refers to retrofits that are aimed at improving a property’s energy efficiency.

Benefits of a Retrofit Assessment and Retrofitting

There are many potential benefits of retrofit assessments and retrofitting generally.

They include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Being more considerate towards global environmental needs.
  • Making the home easier to sell in the future, as others are increasingly looking for homes that are energy efficient.
  • Saving money on utility bills in the long run.
  • Keeping the property up to modern energy standards.
  • Being aware of current energy usage on the property.

Keeping up with Modern Energy Standards – PAS 2035

A key reason many property owners retrofit their homes, properties, and businesses is to comply with changing energy standards nationwide.

Specifically, many are now retrofitting to keep up with PAS 2035:2019 specification for the energy retrofit of domestic buildings, the current standard and framework for ecologically-based retrofits.

It is now a mandatory standard that all publicly funded projects including ecofits, and all companies utilizing Energy Efficiency Measures (including in domestic properties), must follow.

The standard developed from government initiative “Each Home Counts” review, which was launched in 2015 to prioritize renewable energy and energy efficiency issues amongst households in the UK.

Carrying out a Retrofit Assessment in your Home

To carry out an assessment, a qualified Retrofit Assessor or team of retrofit assessors must come to inspect the property in person.

After a variety of assessments, including a physical inspection as well as an examination of the property’s utility bills, the assessor will issue an assessment report so that you can determine whether and how to continue with an effective retrofitting of your property.

What’s in a Retrofit Assessment Report?

After an assessment is carried out, a retrofit assessment report by a retrofit assessor is issued.

The report contains three major segments, an energy report, a condition survey, and an occupancy assessment that provide a larger picture of the property, its usage over time, and future potential.

This is done to ensure all major aspects of the home are considered when deciding what retrofitting projects one should pursue.

Energy Report

The energy report of a retrofit assessment is based on model simulations that factor in the house’s past and current energy usage to predict future energy efficiency levels.

Keep in mind that while an energy report provides useful knowledge about and recommendations for maintaining and improving energy efficiency in your home, it is not the same report as an Energy Performance Certificate, or an EPC. If you are required to get an EPC for your home, you will still have to get one separately.

Condition Survey

During the assessment, the professional will visually inspect the house, checking for signs of structural deficiencies or other clear problems that could make retrofitting difficult without the needed repairs, such as mold or observable dampness. The property’s ventilation systems will also be inspected.

While the retrofit assessor can provide vital information about the property’s physical condition through this survey, the Condition Survey is not a full structural survey of the property.

Occupancy Assessment

The assessor will look at relevant energy and utility bills from the previous year to create this assessment, as well as potentially speak with the property’s residents to best understand how the property is lived in, and how much energy is used.

The assessment can ensure the retrofitting process is well-suited to the residents’ needs.

Do I need a Retrofit Assesssor or can I do it myself?

You cannot carry out a retrofit assessment and related processes in your home: You need professional assistance.

Namely, you will need to hire a retrofit assessor, or even a team of retrofit assessors, to help you carry out an assessment and then develop a retrofit program to make relevant changes.

Oftentimes, a retrofit assessor or assessment team will also work with a Retrofit Coordinator to oversee the process should you decide on a retrofitting project to pursue.

How much hiring a Retrofit Assessor will cost?

The process of retrofitting can take on many forms: A retrofit assessment is only the first step.

Still, carrying out an assessment requires professional know-how, a visit to the property, and feasible recommendations that can be used in the future.

Prices for an assessment vary and depend on:

  • The time spent assessing the home.
  • The size and age of the home.
  • Location.
  • The level of experience the retrofit assessor may have.
  • The distance the professional has to cover.

Generally speaking, you can expect to pay around £100-200 for an assessment.

Should you decide to proceed with such retrofits, costs for the assistance and the retrofitting itself may vary depending on the size of the project you are pursuing.

Talk to the assessor when they finish the assessment: They will likely be able to give cost-estimates upfront for the relevant procedures.

Keep in mind that retrofits and the assessments needed to plan them cost money up front, but are designed to help you save money in the long run by helping you to recreate a home that is ultimately more sustainable.
