To gain a valid rating for your tenancy, you will need to engage a qualified NABERS Accredited Assessor.
Accredited Assessors are professionals who have been trained and accredited by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage to perform NABERS ratings. They collect and verify all the data for a rating according to rules and protocols and are skilled in the management and operation of buildings.
As with any service, ensure you seek a number of quotes.
If you are a program Signatory, be sure to check your chosen Assessor submits your CitySwitch Administration Fee discount at the time of rating lodgement. You can request a narrowed-down list of Assessors who have carried out NABERS Energy ratings for CitySwitch program Signatories from your local program manager.
Prior to enlisting the services of an Assessor, your CitySwitch program manager can also help you conduct an indicative rating to better understand how your building is currently performing. This indicative rating is an approximate estimate and only fully accredited ratings may be publicised.
Your program manager can also help you utlise the online NABERS reverse calculator to find out some of the potential actions necessary to increase an existing star rating.
