EPCs on homes for sale or let are mandatory in order to advertise the property. EPCs are also produced in order to be able to install some renewable energy solutions. An Energy Performance Certificate, commonly known as an EPC, is a document that indicates the relative fuel efficiency of your property. You will probably already have seen forms of Energy Performance Certificates when you have been buying white household goods, such as fridges and washing machines. The relative energy efficiency of these goods is indicated by a colour coded sticker. Briefly, here's what you'll find in the home EPC Report's several sections: The EPC will be issued after an inspection, typically lasting under an hour, by a qualified Home Inspector or Domestic Energy Assessor. The certificate will contain the following information: Details of your property, its address, date of report and property size in square metres; A table with headline performance ratings calculated in terms of the average energy use per square metre of floor area, and its "environmental impact" based on carbon dioxide (C02) emissions; A table providing indicative costs to light, heat and provide hot water, making standard assumptions about occupancy, heating patterns and the location of the property. This will make any one property easy to compare with another. Energy use will include the energy used in the home and the energy it takes to deliver the fuel to your home. Service or maintenance costs for energy using devices such as white goods are not included. A summary of the property's energy performance features, with walls, roofs, floors, windows, heating systems, hot water systems and lighting rated as very poor, poor, average, good or very good. Recommended measures to improve the home's performance ratings. These may typically include putting a 160mm jacket on the hot water cylinder, upgrading loft insulation to the recommended 270mm thickness, fully filling wall cavities with fibre, or installing a more energy-efficient boiler. It will not state the cost of these improvements - which will vary according to the cost of local labour and the materials used - but it will contain estimated annual cost savings. What is the benefit of having an EPC? The EPC is required on all homes for sale or rent at the time of advertising. These can be bought through estate agents, but will be cheaper when bought through independent suppliers. EPCs are also required in order to install renewable technologies such as solar panels, heat pumps and biomass boilers. Following the EPC advice will reduce your fuel bills and make your home more comfortable. How can Bladen Consulting help you?
