Energy Performance certificate

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a crucial document that provides essential information about the energy efficiency of a property. At Emit Zero, we offer professional EPC services to home owners and landlords. Our team of qualified assessors are committed to providing comprehensive and accurate assessments, ensuring that you have the knowledge and insights needed to make informed decisions about your property. 

An EPC rates a property's energy efficiency on a scale from A to G, with A being the most efficient (indicated by a green colour) and G being the least efficient (represented by the colour red). This rating considers the property's overall energy performance, heating and hot water systems, as well as the insulation. The certificate also includes valuable recommendations for improving the property's energy efficiency. 

EPCs are not only a legal requirement for property sellers and landlords, but they also play a vital role in helping property owners and tenants make informed decisions. By understanding a property's energy efficiency rating, you can identify areas for improvement, reduce energy consumption, and ultimately save money on bills. Moreover, an EPC provides a clear overview of the property's environmental impact, contributing to a more sustainable future.

FAQs

Answers to our most frequent questions

Why is an epc important?

Property owners may sometimes question the purpose of an Energy Performance Certificate, but the reason for its existence is straightforward: it is a legal requirement. The certificate serves to inform potential buyers and renters about the energy efficiency of the property, preventing them from unknowingly investing in a home that requires costly upgrades to meet energy standards. Similarly, renters can avoid paying high monthly heating and cooling bills for an inefficient property.

Does an epc have to be done?

Since 2008, it has been a legal requirement to obtain a Domestic Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) if you plan to sell or rent out your home. The purpose of this law is to provide prospective buyers or renters with information about the energy efficiency of the property.

What does an epc show?

The EPC not only outlines the current energy efficiency of the home but also offers recommendations on how to improve it. Before selling or renting a residential property, the landlord or seller must schedule an appointment for an EPC inspection. Moreover, to finance energy-saving upgrades, the government provides incentives like the Energy Company Obligation (ECO). However, to qualify for these funds, possessing an Energy Performance Certificate is a requirement.

What are the benefits?

Although a Domestic Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is legally required for homeowners who intend to sell or rent their property, it has numerous additional uses. One of the advantages of having an EPC for your home is that it enables you and potential buyers to assess the property's energy efficiency, not just in the present but also in the future. By following the advice provided in the EPC, you may increase the market value and desirability of your home by enhancing its energy efficiency. Furthermore, a Domestic EPC is simple and easy to understand, offering a quick summary of your property's energy efficiency.

How Long is an epc valid for?

The lifespan of a residential Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is 10 years. If you have had an EPC assessment within the past 10 years and there have been no major renovations to your home, it is unlikely that you will need another one. This means that if you are planning to sell or rent out your property within the 10-year period after the last EPC assessment, you may use the existing certificate. However, if you have made significant changes to the property that could affect its energy efficiency, you may need to obtain a new EPC. In summary, a residential EPC assessment is valid for 10 years as long as no significant changes have been made to the property.

WHAT DOES THE ASSESSOR DO AND HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?

Our energy assessor will require an amount of time at your property based on its size and accessibility requirements. The duration of the assessment may vary, as the assessor will need to complete a thorough examination of the property. During the assessment, our energy assessor will check several factors, such as the size of the property, lighting system, insulation in the loft and cavity walls, heating and hot water systems, thermal performance of the windows, and ventilation. By conducting a comprehensive review of these components, the energy assessor can accurately evaluate the property's energy efficiency and provide useful recommendations on how to enhance it. The assessor will be as efficient as possible while ensuring that every area of the property is thoroughly examined.
