SAP (Standard Assessment Procedure)

Trust Our Years of Experience

Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) is the Government’s Standard Assessment Procedure for Energy Rating of Dwelling. It’s used to demonstrate the compliance for dwellings with Part L of the Building Regulations.

It is a legal requirement that a Design Stage SAP calculation is completed before any construction begins.

The principal steps in undertaking a SAP calculation are as follows:

  • Determine the overall dwelling dimensions
  • Calculate the rate of ventilation
  • Calculate the heat losses
  • Calculate the water heating energy requirements
  • Determine the internal gains
  • Determine the solar gains
  • Determine the mean internal temperature
  • Determine the degree days
  • Calculate the useful space heating requirement and then the delivered energy for this and for water heating
  • Determine the fuel costs from the delivered energy figures
  • Calculate the SAP rating
  • Calculate the carbon dioxide emissions
