is the purpose of an EPC?
The Energy Performance Certificate is a legal requirement which tells
the potential buyers or tenants of your property how energy efficient it is. The energy efficiency rating is a measure of
the overall efficiency of a property and is represented on a scale of A-G , with ‘A’ being the highest score and
‘G’ being the lowest. The higher the rating the more energy efficient the home is and the lower the fuel bills
What to expect
when the Energy Assessor visits the property:
To ensure the inspection runs as smoothly as possible:
- The Energy Assessor will be taking internal/external
measurements of the property, drawing floor plans and making site notes.
- It will be necessary to photograph some aspects of the property
and appliances. Our assessors are regularly audited to prove compliance and photographs provide evidence
of the assessment.
- Access is required to all rooms in the property to assess the methods of heating, lighting and ventilation
in the home.
access is required to meter cupboards, heating systems and their controls, i.e. boilers, timers, hot water cylinders, thermostats,
inspection of loft spaces (if accessible) is required to assess insulation. There is no need to move or remove any items
stored in the loft.
- It might be necessary to open windows and doors to determine wall thicknesses.
- For the average 3 bedroom property, the inspection
will take approximately 1 hour - longer if the property is larger or of unusual complexity.
- The Energy Assessor is a qualified professional
- insured, accredited, licensed and bound by Codes of Conduct under government recognised Accreditation Schemes. Full details,
together with a comprehensive complaints procedure, are available upon request from your Energy Assessor.
- Please leave clear access to the areas indicated above to facilitate the inspection. The Energy
Assessor must not move furniture or personal items during the inspection. If the Energy Assessor has to limit
their inspection in any way because of obstructions, this might have a detrimental effect on the energy rating your property
you will not be present for the inspection, please be mindful that the inspection cannot take place if there are juveniles
under the age of 16 in sole charge of the property.
- The assessor will not enter a property where dogs or other animals that
could pose a hazard are unaccompanied or unrestrained.
- It is important that the assessor is allowed to carry out the inspection
in their own time and without distraction, to ensure none of the data vital to the production of the certificate is missed
and that mistakes are not made.
