After previously considering my Overall Dimensions, Heating Requirements and Internal Gains, I am now able to complete my Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) calculationsby looking at my final three categories: 9a_Energy Requirements, 10_Fuel Costs, and 11_SAP Rating.
My SAP calculations for energy requirements can be seen below:
My SAP calculations for my fuel costs can be seen below:
My SAP calculations for SAP Rating can be seen below:
To double-check these figures (and increase my level of confidence), I contacted BRE’s Energy Team, who were kind enough to review my calculations. After a few exchanges, I believe we have managed to spot and correct most, if not all, of the errors to arrive at a pretty realistic SAP score. This means that I am able to test scenarios and see the impact any improvements have on Tŷ Crempog.
Now that my calculations are complete, I am happy to share them:
- 7001-BBH-ZZ-ZZ-CA-Z-00001 – SAP Calculation
Having these calculations in Google Sheets is great because I am able to share and test these results.
It is so easy, I am issuing a challenge:
What are the most cost-effective thermal improvements that could be undertaken?
Using the structured information provided in my Calculation Sheet and SAP Documentation, what improvements can you test and suggest back? The best suggestions will feature in next month’s blog post!!! For example:
So, let your creativity flow, and see what solutions you can think of:
And there we have it. Having now completed my SAP Calculations using Tŷ Crempog‘s information model, I should now (with your help) be able to determine the most cost-effective thermal improvements that could be undertaken. In doing so, PLQ 3.4 will be complete!
Operation and Maintenance
3.1 What are the sizes and condition of the windows & doors? 3.2 What assets are in a poor condition? 3.3 What costs can be attributed to my assets?
- 3.4 What are the most cost effective thermal improvements that could be undertaken?
Now that my SAP rating has been calculated, Let’s see what potential improvement works you lot have suggested…
