Hi, my name is Aziz and I am an accredited Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) assessor based in Aylesbury.

With a solid background and a real passion for the work, I love guiding my clients towards energy savings and more environmentally friendly choices. It doesn’t matter if you’re living in your own home, leasing properties, or involved in property development – I’m here to provide you with reliable and high-quality help for all your energy needs.

 

What Is an EPC?

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is required when selling or renting out a property. It contains two ratings—an energy efficiency rating from A-G, where A is the most efficient, and a rating for environmental impact from A-G, where A is the least impactful. These ratings provide information about how much energy your home uses and its environmental impact. The report also includes recommendations for making your home more energy efficient.

 

Why Do Homeowners Need an EPC?

If you’re selling or renting out a property in Aylesbury, you must have an up-to-date EPC before marketing your property. This ensures that potential buyers or tenants have all the necessary information they need before deciding whether to purchase or rent your property. Having an up-to-date EPC can also help increase the value of your property by highlighting any potential savings they could make through improved energy efficiency measures.

 

Why Do Landlords Need an EPC?

Landlords who rent out their properties in Aylesbury must have an up-to-date Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). This is required by law as part of their legal obligations as landlords. An accurate and up-to-date EPC helps ensure that tenants are aware of their rights when it comes to energy efficiency in rental properties and can provide valuable insight into ways to improve the efficiency of rented accommodation.

 

What Happens After an Epc Assessment Has Been Completed?

The EPC assessment provides a property with an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient), and it’s valid for 10 years.

Once an EPC assessment is completed, the following happens:

  1. Receiving the EPC Report: The property owner receives an EPC report that includes not only the energy efficiency grade of the property but also an estimation of the energy cost of the property, and suggestions for improving its energy efficiency.
  2. Understanding the Report: The property owner should take the time to understand the report. If any parts of the EPC are unclear, they should get in touch with the energy assessor for clarification.
  3. Implementing Improvements: The report will contain recommendations for improving the energy efficiency of the property. These could include things like improving insulation, upgrading the heating system, or installing renewable energy technologies. The property owner is not legally required to implement these recommendations, but doing so could save money on energy bills and increase the property’s EPC rating.
  4. Resale or Renting: If the owner is planning to sell or rent out the property, they must provide the EPC to any potential buyer or tenant. It’s worth noting that as of April 2018 in the UK, rental properties must have a minimum EPC rating of E.
  5. Reassessment: If significant energy efficiency improvements have been made to the property, the owner may wish to get a new EPC assessment done to reflect these changes.

The floor area of a property can impact its Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating. Larger areas may require more energy to heat and cool, potentially lowering the efficiency rating if not counterbalanced by energy-saving features. However, the EPC rating is also influenced by how well the space is utilised and insulated, the efficiency of heating and cooling systems, and the presence of energy-saving measures. Therefore, a larger property with excellent insulation and energy-efficient systems could still achieve a high rating.

 

Yes, in many cases, you can use your EPC to qualify for green energy incentives or schemes aimed at improving energy efficiency. Governments and energy companies often offer grants, loans, or rebates for properties with certain EPC ratings or for those looking to make improvements that will enhance their rating. It’s advisable to check local and national programs for which your EPC might make you eligible.

 

While the general methodology for calculating an Energy Performance Certificate is standardised, recommendations may be somewhat tailored to specific climates or regions, reflecting the local environmental conditions and common building practices. For example, in colder regions, there might be a greater emphasis on heating efficiency and insulation, while in warmer areas, the focus could be more on cooling and shading.

 

EPC assessment criteria can be updated periodically to reflect advancements in building technology, changes in energy standards, and evolving environmental policies. Assessors need to stay informed about these updates to ensure accurate and up-to-date assessments. Property owners might also benefit from understanding these changes, especially if they’re considering making improvements or reassessing their property.

If your property receives the lowest Energy Performance Certificate rating, it indicates very poor energy efficiency, which could have several implications. In some regions, it might restrict your ability to rent out the property, and it could potentially decrease the property’s market value. However, the EPC will also provide recommendations for improvements, which, if implemented, could significantly enhance the property’s rating, efficiency, and appeal.

 

The estimated savings on an EPC are based on average energy prices and typical usage patterns. While they provide a good indication of the potential savings from making recommended improvements, actual savings will vary depending on actual energy prices, individual usage patterns, and how well the improvements are implemented and maintained.

Yes, if you’re selling a property at auction in regions where an EPC is legally required, you must have a valid EPC available for potential buyers to view. Having an up-to-date Energy Performance Certificate is important, as it informs bidders about the property’s energy efficiency, which can influence their bidding decisions.

 

Renovating a listed building might require a new EPC, especially if significant changes are made to the heating system, insulation, or other features affecting energy efficiency. However, listed buildings may have certain exemptions or considerations due to their historical significance. It’s crucial to consult with local conservation authorities and EPC assessors who have experience with listed properties to understand the specific requirements and options.
