Hi, I`m Paul, your EPC Near Me assessor in Carlisle.

Whether you’re a homeowner looking to improve your property’s energy efficiency, a landlord aiming to comply with EPC requirements for rentals, or someone planning to buy a new home and wanting to understand its energy performance, I’m here to help.

 

What is an EPC?

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a document that details the energy efficiency of a building. It uses a scale ranging from A to G, with A being the most energy-efficient and G being the least. An EPC will provide specific information about a property’s energy use and typical energy costs, as well as recommendations for improving its energy efficiency.

 

Benefits of an EPC

  1. Energy Savings: A primary benefit of an EPC is that it highlights the potential energy savings a homeowner or landlord could make. By implementing the recommendations provided, property owners can reduce their energy bills.
  2. Environmental Impact: An energy-efficient home or building reduces carbon emissions, contributing to a reduced carbon footprint and helping in the fight against climate change.
  3. Increased Property Value: Properties with better EPC ratings may be more appealing to prospective buyers or tenants, leading to potential increases in property value or rental income.
  4. Detailed Insights: The EPC provides detailed insights into the current energy performance of a property and areas that need improvement. This knowledge can guide property owners in making informed decisions about upgrades.

 

Upgrades for Carlisle Property Owners

  1. Insulation: One of the most effective ways to improve energy efficiency is to ensure a property is well insulated. This includes loft insulation, cavity wall insulation, and floor insulation.
  2. Double Glazing: Installing double-glazed windows can significantly reduce heat loss, leading to reduced energy bills.
  3. Energy-Efficient Boilers: Upgrading to a modern, energy-efficient boiler can make a substantial difference in a property’s EPC rating.
  4. Renewable Energy: Consider installing solar panels or other renewable energy sources to generate electricity or heat water. These can offer significant long-term savings and environmental benefits.
  5. Draught Proofing: Sealing gaps around doors and windows can prevent unwanted cold drafts and heat loss.
  6. Efficient Lighting: Switching to LED bulbs and installing energy-efficient light fixtures can reduce energy consumption.

 

Government Regulations

The UK government has set regulations regarding the need for an EPC. As of recent regulations:

  1. Every domestic and commercial property available for sale or rent must have a valid EPC.
  2. Landlords cannot rent out properties with an EPC rating below E unless they have a valid exemption.
  3. These regulations are in place to promote energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and ensure that occupants have a clear understanding of the energy performance of their potential new home or commercial space.

When selecting an EPC assessor, ensure they are properly accredited and registered with a recognised government body. Look for assessors with experience in your type of property and good customer reviews. It’s also helpful to choose someone familiar with your local area and its specific building styles and energy efficiency challenges.

To prepare for an EPC assessment, make sure all areas of your property are accessible, including lofts, basements, and heating systems. Have documentation available for any recent energy-efficient improvements, like new windows, insulation, or heating systems. A tidy and well-maintained property can also facilitate a smoother assessment process.

Delays in obtaining an EPC can occur due to incomplete or inaccessible areas during the assessment, lack of necessary documentation for recent upgrades, or the assessor’s schedule. In some cases, complex properties may require more time for a thorough assessment. Prompt communication and preparation can help minimise these delays.

The duration of an EPC assessment can vary depending on the size and complexity of the property. Typically, it takes about 45 minutes to an hour for an average-sized residential property. Larger or more complex properties, such as those with multiple extensions or non-standard construction, may take longer.

To verify the authenticity of your EPC, check the certificate’s unique reference number on the national EPC register. This ensures that the EPC was issued by a properly accredited assessor and contains valid information about your property’s energy performance.

What to expect when a Domestic Energy Assessor comes to your property

Every Domestic Energy Assessor / DEA will have their own order and format of carrying out the EPC depending on the software that they use and their personal preference to efficiency.
