What Is An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)?

Back in 2007 the Government introduced a scheme to record how energy efficient and environmental competent your property is. This ensured that the government complied with the Energy Performance of Building Directives (EPBD).

You are no longer allowed to sell or rent your property if you have not ordered or possess an up to date Energy Performance Certificate. They provide the owner or landlord with a record of the level of energy efficiency and CO2 emissions that are present in the building.

The information is derived from questions a local assessor will ask you following an inspection of key items in your property, such as hot water tanks, domestic boilers, double glazing etc. These details are processed by using a rating table from A to G (A being very efficient).

A separate Energy Performance Certificate is required if your property is a ‘New Build’ called an On Construction certificate. This must be arranged by the person carrying out the work in order to complete the Building Regulations.

An Energy Performance Certificate is valid for 10 years, however, if changes are made within this period, an up to date amended certificate is advised. In order for the highly experienced local assessors to compare buildings of the same type, they have adopted a standard style and method of calculating the level of energy used and the competence of the CO2 emissions in your building.

The purpose of this is to allow any potential buyers, tenants or present owners an insight into how they may be able to reduce their fuel costs and emission levels by simple introducing a few key changes and incorporating them into the agreement.

Together with the Energy Performance Certificate the local assessor will also attach a relative recommendation report. This is a detailed list on how to convert your property into a cost effective building with lower fuel bills and low or zero rated carbon generated systems by following the stated proposals. The certificate will also include a rating information schedule, and this will show you how these recommendations will increase your energy efficiency levels to a higher grade making the sale or renting of your property more appealing.

A green deal scheme has now been developed whereby the costs that you incur to improve your rating and energy levels can be offset from the savings on your fuel and household bills

What is a Domestic Energy Assessor?

A Domestic Energy Assessor, often abbreviated to DEA, is an individual that works out the energy efficiency of domestic buildings, such as flats and houses, and provides their suggestions on how this can be improved. Their findings are presented in a Domestic EPC – Energy Performance Certificate.

When assessing a building, there are various factors that will be considered. The Domestic Energy Assessor will look at the building type, the number of floors, the age of the building, and heating and hot water systems, as well as the size and number of fireplaces, windows, corridors, and rooms. This information will be put into a software programme, which will calculate an EPC and an energy efficiency rating. The Energy Assessor will then explain this rating to the homeowner. They will also provide thorough and practical details on how energy efficiency can be improved.

 

The benefits of hiring an Energy Assessor

As you now know, you need to supply all potential buyers and tenants with an EPC. Therefore, it is critical that you achieve a good rating on your Energy Performance Certificate. Through hiring a Domestic Energy Assessor, you will have a realistic overview of the efficiency of your property and you will know where changes can be made. This will help you to achieve a good rating before you put your property on your market. This will make your property more attractive to potential buyers and tenants because they will know that your home costs less to run. This is imperative when you consider the fact that an increasing number of people are comparing energy costs when they look for a property to rent or buy.

You may find that you can actually increase the value of your house if you improve your EPC rating. At the moment, approximately half of the domestic properties in the United Kingdom have a rating of D. This shows that there is room for huge improvement. This can lead to an increase in the value of your home by approximately six per cent, although this does differ depending on where your property is situated. Aside from this, if you are thinking about investing in renewable energy, and you wish to benefit from the Feed-In Tariff (FIT) that is offered by the government to recoup your investment, you will only be able to do this if your property is rated as D or above. And, of course, the obvious benefit is that you will be able to reduce energy expenditure, and thus save yourself a significant degree of money, while improving the environmental friendliness of your property.

 

 

Responsibility

The responsibility for the provision of an EPC rests with the owner, seller or landlord. With a new build the person carrying out the work must obtain an EPC and inform the building control officer or approved inspector this has been completed in the specified period.

A seller or landlord must pay for the initial EPC inspection, providing the prospective buyer or tenant with an EPC prior to entering into a sale or lease agreement.

A simple procedure, the householder must book an EPC inspection with a local Domestic Assessors who will visit the property and examine key items such as loft insulation, windows for double glazing etc. These observations are calculated, whereby an EPC is issued with a recommendation form attached.

The certificate shows the energy efficiency levels and environmental carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions with a recommended value of the potential for improvements.

Key Points To Look For

When you choose an EPC inspection company, you should ensure that the after care and information access is easily obtainable. The organisation should be able to provide you with full access to your EPC for the next 10 years, the length of its validity.
