What is an Energy Performance Certificate?

Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a legal requirement for all domestic buildings that are available to buy or rent in the UK. It demonstrates how efficiently a building uses energy, how costly it's heating/ lighting maintenance is, what its carbon emissions are and recommendations of how to improve the energy efficiency. It gives the building a rating from A (very efficient) to G (inefficient).

Why Do You need an Energy Performance Check?

EPCs are useful as they can show you what you need to do to improve the energy efficiency of your property. It is also beneficial in boosting the attractiveness of your property to potential buyers.

Not only does an EPC help to reduce your bills, but it will also instruct sellers on how to reduce theirs with cost-effective suggestions such as adding insulation or switching to energy-saving light bulbs in order to achieve a better rating. When it comes to selling your property, an EPC is needed to be shown to potential buyers. 

How can I benefit from one?

One of the most obvious benefits you will experience is the reduction in heating bills. This is because the systems that you will put in place will improve your overall energy efficiency and reduce the amount of heat that is leaked out from your property.

Does an EPC really increase my property value?

Yes. Having Energy Performance Certificates can increase the appeal of your property as it shows potential buyers that systems are in place to ensure that energy bills are cheaper. This helps to improve the appeal over a property that isn't energy efficient.

What Will Our Surveyor Do?

Step 1 - Property Measuring

Our professional will begin by surveying the property, measuring the size and type of construction. This will allow for an accurate measurement as to how efficient your property is. 

Step 2 - Light Fitting Check

Our surveyor will then check throughout the entire property and count how many light fittings are within your home and note which type of fittings they are. (CFT, LED or  Florescent) 

Step 3 - Loft Inspection

Our assessor will next carry out a full inspection of your loft space. They will check for the level of insulation present and the quality of this insulation.

Step 4 - Window Inspection

Our professional will next carry out a visual inspection of all windows on your property. This is to check for the level of glazing, single, double or triple. If your property has a conservatory, the surveyor will also check this. 

Step 5 - Heat System

Our team will next check through the efficiency of the boiler system, looking through the control and testing the thermostats in each room. If you have the original boiler book, this will be incredibly useful for our accessor. 

Step 6 - Photographs

Throughout all of the checks, our experts will take photos to compile into the report. One of the reasons for this is our reports receive random audits to ensure our inspections are the highest standard.
