Energy Performance Certificates
An EPC is legally required for any domestic property if it is being sold, rented and may be required if you are applying for energy grants for improvements such as heat pumps or solar panels.
An EPC gives prospective buyers or tenants information about the energy efficiency of the building they’re buying or renting and will also include recommendations on how to improve the efficiency of the property and reduce energy use.
An assessor will visit the property and conduct a detailed assessment which includes measuring the property, taking notes on the heating and hot water system, and inspecting the levels of insulation in the loft and walls. Most surveys take no longer than 30-60 minutes to complete and the report will usually be emailed within 24 hours.
If the property is being rented, the property must comply with the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) and achieve a minimum rating of an E. We can help you identify what cost effective improvements can be made for properties that fall below the minimum standard.
