PAS 2035

PAS 2035 is a standard, not a certification

We get many enquiries asking how to gain certification for PAS 2035.

That’s the first main misunderstanding. PAS 2035 is a standard, however it is not a certification.

The reason behind PAS 2030:2019 and PAS 2035

Existing properties in the UK are the least energy efficient dwellings in Europe. With more than 50% of existing properties being built before 1965, the Government and large energy providers recognised that funding would be required to encourage home owners to make their properties more energy efficient.

This ‘Retrofit’ scheme needed to be created to ensure that funding would only be used on high quality installations, therefore PAS 2030 was introduced.

What is PAS 2030?

PAS 2030:2019 is the latest standard that was released in July 2019, with only a small number of certification bodies, including Simply, offering certification.

The standard sets out a range of requirements that need to be met to gain certification. Having this certification then allows installers to register onto the Green Deal Orb. Only if you are listed on the Green Deal Orb can your customers benefit from the Green Home Efficiency Scheme, which a property owner can get up to £5,000 of funding towards the cost of a new installation.

What is PAS 2035? 

In a nutshell it is the specification and guidance to the retrofitting of dwellings for improved energy efficiency. Every installer, to gain PAS 2030:2019 needs to demonstrate their ability to have a ‘whole house approach’ i.e. be able to plan an installation that considers the whole of the house; there is no point in getting a brand new boiler if the windows are performing poor.
