What Are Domestic Energy Performance Certificates?
A Domestic Energy Performance Certificate will allow you to see how energy efficient your property is. A rating system is used with ‘A’ being the most efficient and ‘G’ being the least efficient. The higher your rating, the lower your fuel bills will be. You are legally required to have an EPC if you are building, selling or renting out a property.
What is a Domestic Energy Assessor?
A Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA) is a person who has undergone training in the energy performance of buildings using the Reduced Data Standard Assessment Procedure (RdSAP) methodology. This enables the EPC assessor to produce a domestic EPC.
How is a Domestic EPC Created?
One of our DEAs will need to visit your property and examine the exterior and interior of the property and identify any risks.
- Examine the interior and exterior of your property.
- Assess the dimensions of the property as well as any heat loss between walls and ceilings.
- Inspect your boilers, room heaters and fireplaces.
- Examine any extensions and the type of building materials used.
- Inspect the construction of your property.
- Look at any un-separated conservatories.
- Inspect the insulation between walls and lofts.
- Examine the glazing and low energy lighting.
All of this information will be recorded and analysed with a special computer programme. When the report has been created, the DEA will outline their findings with recommendations should the property have a low rating. These recommendations will include cost effective options as well as more expensive options that are less value for money.
