What is the SAP calculation?
The SAP (Standard Assessment Procedure) calculation is used to demonstrate compliance with Building Regulations Approved Document L1A (New Dwellings), and Approved Document L1B (Existing Dwellings).
The SAP is the UK’s standard method of measuring the overall efficiency of a property and is the Government’s recommended system for producing a home energy rating. It is used to calculate the Target Emissions Rate (TER) and the Dwelling Emissions Rate (DER).
The DER on your dwellings must be equal to or better than the TER to show compliance.
Who are we?

We also supply EPC for the installation of Solar PV in order to achieve at least a grade D which then entitles you to the higher rate FIT (Feed in Tariff)
