Welcome to EPC Near Me, the #1 destination for homeowners and landlords across Leicester 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.

EPC assessments are generally accurate reflections of a property’s energy efficiency. They are conducted by accredited assessors who follow standardized procedures. However, the accuracy can depend on the information available and the complexity of the property. Sometimes, improvements or changes made after the assessment can affect the accuracy of the current EPC.

Yes, an Energy Performance Certificate is transferable and remains valid for 10 years, regardless of changes in property ownership. If a property is sold or rented out and the EPC is still valid, the new owner or landlord can use the existing certificate.

An EPC can be very useful when considering solar panel installations. The EPC report may provide insights into how much benefit solar panels could bring in terms of energy savings and efficiency improvements, helping owners make informed decisions.

Yes, there are different types of EPCs tailored to different types of buildings. In the UK, for example, there are domestic EPCs for residential properties and non-domestic EPCs for commercial properties. Each type of EPC assesses energy performance based on criteria relevant to the building’s use.

The recommendations in an Energy Performance Certificate are not legally binding. They are suggestions for improving energy efficiency. However, meeting certain EPC ratings can be a legal requirement for renting out properties in some areas.

An EPC assessor can determine the age of your property based on construction details, modifications, and available records. The age of the property is a factor in assessing its energy performance, as building standards and materials have evolved.

If you make significant improvements to your property after receiving a low EPC rating, it’s advisable to have a new assessment done. Improvements like better insulation, modern heating systems, or renewable energy installations can substantially improve your property’s EPC rating.
