What Is an EPC?
An Energy Performance Certificate is a document that gives information about the energy performance of a building. It also provides recommendations for improving energy performance and reducing energy consumption. An EPC must be carried out by an accredited Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA), who will inspect the property and compile a report based on their findings. The report will include ratings for energy efficiency, environmental impact, fuel costs, and recommendations for improvement.
Benefits of an EPC
An EPC can help homeowners and landlords in Llanelli save money on their energy bills by identifying ways to make their properties more efficient. It can also help them meet government regulations related to energy efficiency, such as the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). Additionally, an EPC can provide valuable information about how to reduce emissions from buildings which help contribute towards meeting emission targets set by local councils. Finally, it can help improve the quality of life in your home or rental unit by identifying areas where there are issues with air quality or ventilation.
The Welsh Government has set out several requirements regarding energy assessments for domestic properties that are rented out within Wales. These regulations state that all domestic rental properties in Llanelli must have an up-to-date EPC at least every ten years and whenever there is a change in tenant or landlord – this includes new lettings, periodic renewals, and assignations/subletting agreements – otherwise they may face fines from local authorities if not compliant with these regulations.
