What is an EPC?

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a certificate that provides information on the energy efficiency of a property. It grades a property’s energy efficiency from A to G, with A being the most energy efficient and G the least. The certificate also contains recommendations on how to improve the property’s energy efficiency and reduce its carbon footprint.

 

Benefits of an EPC

There are several benefits to obtaining an EPC. Firstly, it helps potential buyers and tenants to make more informed decisions when choosing a property. It provides them with an indication of the energy efficiency of a property, giving them an idea of how much they might be spending on energy bills each year. Additionally, an EPC can help homeowners and landlords identify areas where they can make improvements to their property’s energy efficiency, which can lead to cost savings in the long term.

 

Why do Homeowners and Landlords in Bingham Need an EPC?

It is a legal requirement for anyone selling or renting out a property in Bingham to have a valid EPC. Failure to obtain an EPC can result in fines of up to £5,000 for landlords and homeowners. Moreover, having a valid EPC can make a property more attractive to prospective buyers and tenants, as it demonstrates that the landlord or homeowner takes energy efficiency seriously.

 

Government regulations

In April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency standards (MEES) regulations, came into force, which require privately rented properties in England and Wales to have an EPC rating of at least E. If your property has an EPC rating of F or G, you must make energy efficiency improvements before you can legally put your property on the market. Furthermore, if your property is not compliant with MEES regulations, you could face fines of up to £5,000 or 10% of the value of the property, whichever is greater.

 

How to Obtain an EPC

To obtain an EPC in Bingham, you will need to contact a certified Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA) who will carry out an assessment of your property. The DEA will examine the property, looking at features such as insulation, heating systems, and lighting. Once the assessment is complete, the DEA will provide you with your EPC, which is valid for ten years.

 

Preparing For Your EPC Assessment

The DEA will start by looking at the outside of the property. This is to determine its age, construction type, roof type, and number of extensions and detachments. They will also examine the brickwork for signs of insulation. Without access to the outside, the assessment cannot be completed accurately, and the EPC certificate will not be valid. Therefore, it’s essential that you provide access to the assessor to avoid delays in acquiring your EPC.

If your property is currently occupied or has goods stored within it, the DEA will need to examine each room to get an accurate reading. That’s why it’s important to give the assessor access to every part of the house, including the loft and cellar if you have one. For those who use a locked room as a storage space, it’s important for them to provide keys or to be available to unlock the rooms for the DEA to make a thorough check.

It’s also important to know that home fixtures and components like boilers, hot water systems, radiators, and electrical meters are best accessed during the assessment. That way, the DEA can examine them for signs of wear and tear or any performance issues that could contribute to a low energy rating. So don’t worry about clearing up – let the assessor take care of it.
