What is an Energy Performance Certificate?

An Energy Performance Certificate is needed before any residential property is sold, leased or rented. An EPC is a record of the actual and potential energy saving aspects of a particular property. The property is assessed using the UK's Standard Assessment Procedure. Its performance is rated in terms of energy use per sq metre of floor area. Energy efficiency is based on fuel costs and environmental impact based on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

The resulting Energy Performance Certificate issued to you will provide you with clear information on the energy performance of the property and cost effective means for improvement. The results are recommendations for your consideration or for the future owner or tenant to consider.

What things are checked during the EPC inspection?

A site visit will be arranged to suit the client, then one of our Energy Assessors will travel to your property. The only significant factor to be aware of is that our Assessor will need access to the loft space and your boiler. An internal and external inspection of the property is carried out for the purpose of the EPC.
