Energy Performance Certificates (EPC’s)

All domestic and commercial buildings in the UK available to buy or rent must have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)

An EPC records how energy efficient a property is as a building and provides A-G ratings. They are produced using standard methods and assumptions about energy usage so that the energy efficiency of one building can easily be compared with another. This allows prospective buyers, tenants, owners, occupiers and purchasers to see information on the energy efficiency and carbon emissions from their building so they can consider energy efficiency and fuel costs as part of their new property investment.

Our team of locally based assessors are accredited by STROMA and Elmhurst energy ensuring all assessments are carried out to the highest standard.

We can provide commercial and domestic EPCs throughout the UK. We use a team of fully accredited domestic and commercial energy assessors. We pride ourselves on providing a fast and friendly EPC servicing at a highly competitive price.

Once we have completed the survey we will endeavour to have your reports available within 72 hours.

How is an EPC done?

The energy performance assessment needed to complete an EPC assessment will be performed by a qualified and accredited energy engineer who will inspect the property for key energy indicators. This will include the inspection of things like a cavity wall, floor and the insulation fitted in your loft cavities, the hot water tank or domestic boiler, radiators, windows, and heating controls, to rank the property from A (being the best), and G (being the worst). 

How do I get a EPC certificate?

Getting an EPC rating done is easy, simply contact us or fill out our quote form and we’ll send a qualified energy performance specialist to your property or commercial building and we will provide you with your reports within 72 hours of our survey completion. 

How long does an EPC take?

We would usually suggest that an EPC survey of the property should take between 45 minutes to an hour depending on the size of the property or the premises. An EPC is then valid for 10 years, unless you get work done to the property during this period, in this case you may want to re-do your EPC survey to help with selling your property whenever you choose to. EPCs are regulated by the energy performance of buildings regulation 2012 and the survey will be conducted by domestic energy assessors and engineers.

What is the purpose of an energy performance certificate?

Getting an EPC rating professionally will provide you and future property owners with an indication as to how much it will cost to heat and provide energy to a certain property. Obviously, the higher the EPC rating, the lower it will generally cost to heat the property since it will already be well insulated. EPC surveys also include recommendations for energy-efficient property improvements to boost the EPC rating. This will include various insulation boosting techniques, the cost to carry them out, and the savings these changes could generate long term.

FAQs

Your EPC, or energy performance certificate, is valid for 10 years. After this time, your building or property will need to be reassessed in order for it to receive a new energy performance certificate.

Yes. Whether you are renting or selling your property, you will need to provide the tenants or potential buyers with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) certificate. This will tell them how energy efficient the property is and any energy savings they could make.

No. Energy Performance Certificates are rated from A to G, with A being the most energy-efficient and insulative type of property. If your property is not very energy-efficient it won’t fail, it will have an EPC of G.

In the UK properties with an EPC rating of F or G cannot be rented out due to Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES). You will need at least an EPC of E in order to rent out a property and it will also be a lot more challenging to sell a property with a low EPC as well.
