Welcome to EPC Near Me, the #1 destination for homeowners and landlords across Canterbury seeking to obtain an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) for their property. Our easy-to-use platform connects you with accredited local EPC Assessors, ensuring a smooth and efficient assessment process. Here’s what you need to know:

 

What is an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)?

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a crucial document that provides an overview of the energy efficiency of a property. It ranks the property on a scale from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and is a legal requirement for anyone selling, renting, or building a property in the UK. The EPC not only gives potential buyers and tenants insight into the energy performance and potential heating costs of a property but also outlines recommendations for improving its efficiency.

Accreditation

All our Energy Performance Certificate Assessors are fully accredited and have undergone rigorous training to evaluate your property’s energy performance. They are equipped with the knowledge and tools to provide you with a comprehensive and accurate assessment.

 

Domestic Energy Assessors (DEAs)

Our DEAs are experts in analysing residential properties. They play a crucial role in the assessment process, offering you peace of mind that your EPC rating reflects the true energy efficiency of your home.

The Assessment Process: Booking an assessment is simple. Once you’ve found your local assessor on our site, you can book an appointment online. The assessor will visit your property to examine key elements such as insulation, heating systems, and windows. This non-invasive process typically takes 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the size and complexity of your property.

Expectations and Limitations: While our assessors strive to provide a seamless and thorough evaluation, it’s important to understand that the assessment focuses on the energy performance of the building itself. Personal energy usage habits are not taken into account in the EPC rating.

Ratings and Recommendations: Following the assessment, you’ll receive an EPC that includes a rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient). The certificate also offers recommendations for improving your property’s energy efficiency, which could help reduce your energy bills and environmental impact.

Lodgement: Your EPC will be lodged on the national register, making it accessible to potential buyers or tenants as required by law. This ensures transparency and provides valuable information on the energy performance of properties.

Exemptions: Some properties may be exempt from requiring an EPC. These include listed buildings, temporary structures, and places of worship, among others. Our assessors can advise you on whether your property qualifies for an exemption.

Validity: Your EPC is valid for 10 years. It can be used multiple times within this period, whether for selling, renting, or assessing energy performance improvements.

Expiration: As your EPC nears expiration, or if you undertake significant modifications to your property, a new assessment will be necessary to accurately reflect its current energy performance.

An Energy Performance Certificate provides an estimate of a building’s carbon footprint, which is calculated based on its energy use and efficiency. The lower the EPC rating, the higher the carbon emissions, indicating a larger environmental impact. By following the recommendations in the EPC to improve energy efficiency, property owners can reduce the building’s carbon footprint, contributing to environmental sustainability.

Yes, an EPC can influence your decision to purchase solar panels. The recommendations in the Energy Performance Certificate often include the potential benefits of installing renewable energy sources, like solar panels. If the EPC suggests that solar panels could significantly improve your property’s energy efficiency, it can be a compelling factor in deciding to invest in such systems.

In multi-unit buildings, each separate unit typically requires its own EPC to be sold or rented individually. Common areas may not need an individual EPC, but the overall energy efficiency of the building can impact each unit’s rating. Energy Performance Certificates for multi-unit buildings must consider shared heating systems, insulation quality in individual units, and the efficiency of communal areas.

When assessing properties with extensions, the EPC assessor considers both the original part of the building and the extension. Each section is evaluated based on its specific features, such as insulation, windows, and heating systems. The final Energy Performance Certificate rating reflects the combined energy efficiency of the entire property, taking into account any differences between the original structure and the extension.

 

After making significant home improvements that enhance energy efficiency, you should arrange for a new EPC assessment to update the certificate. Contact a qualified EPC assessor who will re-evaluate your property, taking into account the improvements made, such as added insulation, new windows, or an updated heating system. The new EPC will provide an updated rating and reflect the increased efficiency of your property.

 

An Energy Performance Certificate may include recommendations for smart home technologies if they can improve the property’s energy efficiency. This could involve smart thermostats, energy-efficient heating controls, or other devices that help manage energy use more effectively. However, the primary focus of the EPC is on the physical aspects of the property and its inherent energy efficiency.
