How Much Does A BER Cert Cost?
In reality, there is no difference in any BER assessment. No one BER cert is better than another. If you can get a BER Cert for less than €120, bite their hand off. Each BER assessor has a lot of fees and charges to cover before they make a profit. So in reality a good, or average cost for a BER rating is on average €160 with a price range of about €150-€300. If you are quoted €500+ for a BER rating from a registered SEAI BER assessor, I would request a few more quotes.

Are BER Certs free?
If you are selling your property, your estate agent might be kind enough to cough up for a free BER Cert. Your plumber, boiler installer, solar panel installer, etc, may throw in a free BER Cert included in the price of the job. You need the BER rating after the work is done to show how the work has improved the rating. Might be worth enquiring before the job starts if it includes the BER Cert rating in the end
