Home Energy Efficiency Reports - (EPC)
Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) were introduced to help improve the energy efficiency of home and buildings.
From 4th January 2009 EPC's will be required by law whenever a new building is built, sold or rented out. The EPC Certificate provides an 'A' to 'G' rating for the home/building, with an 'A' rating being the most energy efficient and a 'G' rating being the least efficient. Did you know the average rating is only a 'D' but with a few inexpensive changes you can improve your rating greatly.
Our accredited energy assessors produce EPC's alongside an associated report which will recommend improvements to make a building more energy efficient and the most cost effective way to do this.
What is an energy efficiency rating?
The "energy efficiency" rating is a measure of the overall efficiency of a home. The higher the rating the more
energy efficient the home is and the lower your fuel bills are
likely to be.
The "environmental impact" rating is a measure
in terms of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions. The higher the rating the less impact it has on the environment.
What else does the certificate tell you?
The ratings are measured using the same calculations for all homes, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties. Part of the EPC is a report which lists the potential rating that your home could achieve if you made
the recommended changes.
The EPC report suggestions may include things such as upgrading Loft Insulation, Insulating water pipes, fitting energy efficent light bulbs etc.
It will also include the approximate costs & possible cost savings you could make per year if the improvements are made and how this would
improve the energy and
carbon emission rating
of your property, and
make it more attractive
for Sale or Rent by
more energy efficient
and cost effective to run.
