About CPL Services

CPL Services can provide all your energy performance requirements for your property, from planning through to completion and if necessary to sale or rental. CPL Services was established in 2004 in response to the increasing demand for energy conservation in the construction sector.

Our energy assessors are professionally trained & fully accredited to provide air tightness testing, SAP calculations & Energy Performance Certificates for new builds and existing dwellings. Our energy assessors will work with you to achieve compliance on all your energy requirements.

Based in County Tyrone we are central to Northern Ireland but also work in the Republic of Ireland and the UK.

Based in Northern Ireland we can help with:
  • Air Tightness Testing
  • SAP Calculations
  • Energy Performance Certificates
  • Spillage Testing / Appliance Spillage Testing

Airness Tightness Testing
Building Regulations now require Air Tightness Testing and certification to show compliance with current legislation.

CPL Services will test your building to ATTMA TS1 standards using UKAS calibrated equipment and if necessary assist you to identify any air leakage paths which may need to be sealed. CPL Services is BINDT registered and our engineers are fully accredited.

Building regulations from April 2006 require that new buildings comply with ‘Part L’. This means that a percentage of new houses need to undergo air tightness testing, air leakage testing and air permeability testing.

Air tightness testing is the procedure to trace any unwanted draughts and uncontrolled airflow through the house. Too much air leakage leads to heat loss resulting in higher C02 emissions. Reducing C02 emissions is the purpose of ‘Part L’ of the new building regulations through air tightness testing, air leakage testing and air permeability testing.

Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) – New Builds
The Standard Assessment Procedure is adopted by government as the UK methodology for calculating the energy performance of dwellings.

CPL Services can provide design SAP and provide as built SAP calculations. Our energy assessors are fully accredited through Elmhurst Energy Systems.

SAP is the Governments 'Standard Assessment Procedure' for energy rating of dwellings. SAP was designed to be included in the 1995 Building Regulations and it is now a compulsory component in Part L of the Regulations. Every new house has to have a SAP rating. 'SAP' can be defined as follows:

SAP provides a simple means of reliably estimating the energy efficiency performance of dwellings. SAP ratings are expressed on a scale of 1 to 100 the higher the number the better the rating. Thus SAP is similar to the fuel consumption of a car under standard driving conditions.

SAP is calculated by a procedure contained in the Building Regulations, which predicts heating, and hot water costs. These depend on the insulation and air tightness of the house and the efficiency and control of the heating system. The calculation uses the Building Research Establishment's Domestic Energy Model (BREDEM).

The procedure for calculating SAP is defined by the published SAP worksheet - though in practice most people calculating SAP use one of the approved SAP calculation programs. These are computer programs, which are approved by the Building Research Establishment (BRE).

SAP programs are used to enter data on the size of the house, its insulation levels, its ventilation system and its heating and hot water systems. SAP rating can then submitted for Building Regulations approval and is checked by the local Building Control department.

(EPC) Energy Performance Certificates
The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) gives home owners, tenants and buyers information on the energy efficiency of their property. It gives the building a standard energy and carbon emission efficiency grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’, where ‘A’ is the most efficient and with the average to date being D.

Appliance Spillage Testing in Northern Ireland
CPL Services can carry out a spillage test to OFTEC guidelines on an appliance fitted in the same room as an extractor fan to establish if the fan can cause a spillage of combustion products from the appliance into the room.
