At Energy Performance Solutions, we try to achieve the best possible rating for your property. We can provide the standard EPC certificate where you can see the energy efficiency recommendations, which are automatically set by the software that we energy assessors use. However, we can also offer a consultancy service where we assess your property and then provide energy efficiency improvements outside the ones stated in the EPC certificate. These extra recommendations cost much less to implement as the aim is to achieve a minimum of C rating, avoiding costly improvements such as wall insulation or double glazing. Whether it is a full property refurbishment or just a few adjustments, this service is highly recommended for who needs a C rating minimum at lower costs. Given the new regulations that will come into force in 2025, requiring properties to achieve a minimum of C rating, it is wise to always to consult with a specialist before making any changes to the property.

Who Needs Energy Performance Certificates: Since the introduction of the EU Directive on performance of buildings in 2007, it is a legal requirement to have a valid EPC when selling or renting a property. By law, prospective tenants or buyers must have access to a valid EPC; therefore, it is important to have a valid EPC before advertising a property. There are cases however where a property is exempt from the EPC requirements. To find out about these exemptions, please follow the link: A guide to energy performance certificates for the marketing, sale and let of dwellings (publishing.service.gov.uk) epc london
What is an EPC: The EPC certificate consists of the assessment of the energy efficiency of the property. The property is attributed a rating which varies from A to G - the most efficient is A and the least efficient is G. The survey takes into account the building's age, type of fabric, thickness of the walls, level of insulation, type of windows, heating system and its controls. The survey does not take into account your appliances, such as washing machines, microwaves or any heater that is not fixed.
