What is an EPC?
An Energy Performance Certificate
(EPC) is a legal document that provides information on how efficient your building is in terms of energy use. It measures the energy performance of your property by assigning it a rating from A to G, with A being the most efficient and G being the least efficient. The Energy Performance Certificate also provides recommendations on how to improve your property’s energy efficiency. For example, it might suggest installing double-glazed windows
or upgrading to LED light bulbs
Why Do Homeowners And Landlords in Kidwelly Need One?
In Kidwelly and throughout Wales, all rented properties must have an up-to-date Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). This applies to both new tenancies as well as renewals where any improvements have been made that could affect the rating since the last assessment was conducted. Furthermore, all landlords must now ensure their properties reach at least an E rating
before they can let them out – this minimum requirement came into force on 1st April 2018. In addition to this legal requirement, having an up-to-date EPC can help you save money on your utility bills due to increased efficiency and comfort levels in your home or rental property.
Benefits of Obtaining an EPC
The main benefit of obtaining an EPC is that it allows homeowners and landlords in Kidwelly to assess the energy efficiency of their property. This information can help them make informed decisions about how to improve energy efficiency
and save money on utility bills. The certificate also provides suggested improvements for reducing the amount of energy used by the home or rental property.
EPCs are also useful when it comes time to sell or rent out a property because they provide potential buyers/tenants with valuable information about how much energy use their new home will entail. Additionally, since there are government regulations requiring all homes to be accompanied by an EPC when sold or rented out, having one makes your property more attractive to potential buyers/tenants who may be looking for properties that meet government standards.
Your Domestic Energy Assessor will need certain documents in order to carry out your EPC assessment accurately and efficiently. These include identity documents such as passports/driving licenses; copies of relevant building regulations certificates; evidence of installation dates; details of any alterations made since construction; electrical installation certificates; boiler service records; and any other appliance documentation that may be relevant. Make sure these documents are ready when your assessor arrives so that they can get started right away.
Check the Property
Your assessor will need access to all parts of the property, including loft spaces or cellars where applicable. Make sure there is enough space for them to move around freely and safely, and check that all windows and doors open properly before they arrive. Your assessor should also be able to access meters easily so make sure any obstructions are removed prior to their arrival. Additionally, switch off any appliances that are not needed during the assessment – this will help save time.
Understand How Long it Will Take
The length of time required for an EPC assessment varies depending on the size and type of property being assessed but typically takes between 1-3 hours from start to finish.
