Best for homeowners wanting to make energy efficiency improvements in their homes, help with planning renovations or reducing energy costs.

A detailed look at your house's running costs and how it compares to other houses. From June 2023 Scorecard assessments will be eligible for a VEU rebate to help offset the cost of inspection and report.      


Pre-Purchase Report  

This report is for customers who want to know what sort of energy efficiency improvements will be required to do in the house they are thinking of buying. It is based on our Scorecard assessment and as such will also be eligible for rebate from June 2023. Please note, it is not a building, structural or pest report - just energy efficiency and running costs.   


Regulatory rating and report, including stamped plans required for building permit. We are accredited to use all 3 major rating software packages, BERS, FR5 and Hero. NatHERS rating can be used for building approvals of new homes or renovations. Renovations will require 2 ratings, before and after. 



DTS is a another way of demonstrating compliance with building code requirements when applying for building permit for renovation or addition. Includes stamped plans and a report for the building surveyor. 


Changes to the assessment to compare different scenarios or upgrade options. Can be used in NatHERS or DTS assessments on design stage to identify most cost effective option to achieve required star rating. With Scorecard, variations can be used to identify most effective upgrade path or if the rating is required before and after the upgrades (for a discounted loan or a rebate). 

Variations can be small or complex. Complex variations, when changes are made to the zones (rooms) ie changing in size, adding or removing rooms, may require additional fee.
