The EPC market can be a very odd one. It’s often consists of additional 3rd parties getting a piece of the pie. So for instance say you do a Google search since you need an EPC. Almost all of the advertisements at the very top are simply marketing companies that sell on the lead to someone in that area and take a commission cut from the price they have charged the customer.

Are you aware that the majority Estates Agents don’t actually carry out your EPCs. It’s not worth it for them because the EPC is a low priced product in a competitive sector. They simply sub contract it out to an actual provider like ourselves, and then charge you double for the privilege. In reality your Agents is likely to make more from the EPC than we do.

So if you wish to avoid paying other people commission then book direct with us. Save yourself money and get a better service.

The EPC Visit - What You Should Expect

More Info

Typically the average visit takes between 20 and 30 minutes. The Assessor will need access to all areas. Your Assessor is going to take dimensions of your property, and then will go around room by room and gather details about the current heating, lighting, glazing and insulation

Your Assessor needs to take photographs of specified things within the house. The photographs are of things like, the boiler, the heating controls, insulating material inside the loft etc. These pictures are required for audit reasons and have to be given to an auditor as proof to support the information that were entered into the program.

It may be helpful when you can give invoices or warranties for any of these:

Windows
Wall insulation: internal, cavity, external
Solar installation
Loft conversions

The EPC Rating

More Info

Once the Assessor has gathered all the needed information, the information has to be entered into accredited Government software to generate the Energy Performance Certificate.

An Energy Performance Certificate will give suggestions about energy saving upgrades that can be made to the home which can help to lower it’s energy running costs. It will also provide an energy score from 0-100, with a G representing 0, the lowest and an A 100 representing the highest. {-}

If the home rates higher than an A100 then it means that it is carbon neutral and it is actually putting energy back into the grid. This is certainly achieved if your home has renewal technologies for example heat pumps and solar systems installed.

It is a legal prerequisite that each rented homes has to attain an E energy rating. If it doesn’t then the landlord must make endeavours to get it to an E or submit an application for an exemption when there is a valid reasons to do so.

For home sales, there are actually no legal minimum ratings to be attained. The owner must simply give the certificate for the purchaser to make their own judgements.

Your Energy Performance Certificate is valid for a period of ten years.
