FR5 Software

FirstRate5® house energy rating software

FirstRate5® is an easy-to-use interactive tool with a graphic user interface that enables designers and thermal performance assessors to generate energy ratings for a home by tracing over floor plans. The software integrates the AccuRate calculation engine to estimate the annual heating and cooling energy and can be used to rate an existing design or as an interactive tool to optimise the design beyond compliance.

Changes to the generation of the FirstRate5 preview certificate

by FR5 | Nov 08, 2019
Changes have been introduced to enhance the security of the FirstRate5 preview certificate.

From Friday 8 November 2019 (11:45 AM) preview certificates generated on the FirstRate5 website will be converted to images and a greater area of each page will be covered by the preview watermark. These changes will increase the file size of a preview certificate to approximately 1 MB.
 
Please note that these changes will not affect the production of the final purchased certificate in anyway.
