Read about our services
If you own a building constructed after 1 January 2006, you are likely to be familiar with energy declarations. An energy declaration, also known as an ‘energy performance certificate’, is a document that indicates the energy efficiency of a building.
In Sweden it is mandatory to have an energy declaration
In Sweden, it is mandatory to have an energy declaration for all new buildings, and the document must be renewed every ten years. The purpose of an energy performance certificate is to help owners and tenants make informed decisions about a building’s energy costs and how to improve its efficiency. While the process of renewing an energy declaration can seem daunting, our team of certified experts can help make it quick and easy. We’ll work with you to make sure your energy declaration is up to date and accurate, so you can focus on more important things. Contact us today to find out more about our services or to get started with your energy declaration.
the energy declaration is for making informed decisions
An energy performance certificate is a document that shows how much energy a building uses and what opportunities there are to save energy. The purpose of an energy performance certificate is to provide a common basis for comparing the energy use of different buildings and to motivate owners, landlords and tenants to work together to reduce their energy consumption. Energy declarations are valid for 10 years, after which they must be updated. Our experienced energy experts can carry out an on-site energy declaration, and the process takes one to three hours depending on the size and complexity of the building. You can choose whether you want to be present during the energy audit and, if so, for how long. Once the audit is complete, you will receive an energy declaration that is valid for ten years.
Take the opportunity to get a quote and book the OVK inspection when you order the energy declaration.
Registering the declaration with Boverket is also part of the process. It is efficient to do the OVK inspection and the energy declaration at the same time. Take the opportunity to get a quote and book the OVK inspection when you order the energy declaration. Our goal is to make the process as smooth as possible for you. Fill in our simple form and make sure you have the documentation according to our checklist available when the energy expert arrives.
Frequently asked questions about energy declarations
How long is an energy declaration valid?
An energy declaration is valid for 10 years.
Who is responsible for ensuring that there is a valid energy declaration?
The building owner is responsible for ensuring that there is a valid energy declaration.
Why make an energy declaration?
Energy declarations became compulsory in 2006 (Act on Energy Declarations for Buildings 2006:985) and the aim is to promote efficient energy use and a good indoor environment in buildings.
How does an energy declaration work?
An energy declaration is drawn up by a certified energy expert. In order to draw up an energy declaration, the energy expert needs to collect evidence and carry out an energy audit.
What preparations need to be made for an energy declaration?
In our checklist, which you will receive when you get a quote and order an energy declaration, you can see what documentation the energy expert needs to have access to, including energy consumption, the latest OVK protocol and radon protocol.
What is done during the energy audit?
The energy audit, which is needed to draw up an energy declaration, starts with a review of the supporting documents. The building will then be inspected and you can choose whether or not to attend.
How long does the energy audit take?
The walk-through and energy audit takes one to three hours, depending on the size and complexity of the building. The energy declaration is then drawn up in the office of the energy expert.
Which spaces are energy audited?
The energy expert is most curious about the sub-central, fan room and other technical areas, as well as building components such as exterior walls, roofs and attics. This is to provide the best possible basis for the energy declaration. The exact spaces and parts of the building that need to be energy audited are assessed on site.
When will the energy declaration be ready?
Once the energy expert has gathered all the information and carried out the energy audit, he or she draws up an energy declaration and registers it with Boverket. A copy will be sent to you. The energy performance certificate indicates the energy class of the building and whether there are any proposed measures.
