Are you are selling your house or renting it out? if so you need to provide an Energy Performace certificate. iSurveyor.com have a database of EPC inspectors who can provide reasonable quotes for your Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) needs. Your estate agent may have offered you an EPC, but you should at least check the costs compared with the no obligation quotes from the EPC list on iSurveyor.com. The EPC provides information on how energy efficient your property is and also some basic ways to make your home more energy efficient and reduce carbon dioxide emissions. All homes bought, sold or rented require an EPC.
Filling in the form above will give you a set of contact details from Energy Assessors who specialise in providing Energy Performance Certificates. You will be able to make direct contact with them to discuss your requirement in more detail, they will also receive the details you put on the form. Before appointing a Energy Certificate assessor and placing an order you should ensure yourself that your chosen supplier has the relevant qualifications, licences, experience and insurance to provide the level of service that you require. There is of course no obligation to use any of the property experts that you have been introduced to.
Below is an indication of the information provided in an EPC
Energy Performance Certificates – what they tell you
- information on your home's energy use and carbon dioxide emissions
- a recommendation report with suggestions to reduce energy use and carbon dioxide emissions
Energy use and carbon dioxide emissions
EPCs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions with potential figures that your home could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions would be if energy saving measures were put in place.
The rating measures the energy and carbon emission efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is 'D'. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
The detailed recommendation report shows what you could do to help reduce the amount of energy you use and your carbon dioxide emissions. The report lists suggested improvements, like fitting loft insulation, and gives the possible cost savings per year, if the improvements are made. It also shows how the recommendations would change the energy and carbon emission rating of the property.
