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

Adding solar panels to a property is likely to improve its Energy Performance Certificate rating because solar panels generate renewable energy, reducing the property’s reliance on non-renewable energy sources and decreasing its carbon emissions. The improvement in the EPC rating will depend on the size and efficiency of the solar panel system relative to the property’s energy needs. Solar panels are especially effective in enhancing EPC ratings for properties that consume a lot of electricity, as they can significantly offset energy use with clean, renewable power.

In EPC assessments, the installation of triple glazing can provide a greater improvement in energy efficiency ratings compared to double glazing due to the additional layer of glass and insulating gas, which further reduces heat loss and external noise. Triple glazing is particularly beneficial in colder climates where heat retention is crucial. However, the incremental benefit in the EPC rating when upgrading from double to triple glazing may not be as significant as the initial upgrade from single to double glazing, given diminishing returns in insulation improvement. The specific impact on the EPC rating also depends on other factors such as the property’s overall insulation and energy efficiency.

The orientation of a property can influence its EPC rating because it affects natural light and heat gain. A south-facing property, for example, can benefit from more sunlight during the day, potentially reducing the need for artificial lighting and heating, which can improve energy efficiency. During the assessment, the EPC assessor considers the property’s orientation as part of the overall evaluation of its energy performance. However, orientation is just one of many factors assessed, and its impact on the final EPC rating varies depending on the property’s design, insulation, and other energy efficiency features.

A property’s EPC rating can indeed affect its eligibility for green finance products, such as green mortgages or loans for energy efficiency improvements. Many financial institutions offer preferential rates or terms for properties with higher EPC ratings, recognising them as lower risk and more aligned with sustainability goals. Properties with higher EPC ratings are often more attractive to lenders because they are likely to have lower operating costs and be more resilient to future increases in energy prices. Property owners should check with lenders for specific eligibility criteria related to EPC ratings when considering green finance options.
