What is an EPC?
An EPC is a certificate that shows how energy efficient a property is. The certificate is valid for 10 years and must be renewed every 10 years. By law, the certificate must be obtained by a qualified assessor who will visit the property and assess its energy efficiency. The assessor will then provide a report which will be used to generate the EPC.
The EPC will give the property a rating from A (very efficient) to G (inefficient). The rating will take into account the property’s insulation, heating, ventilation, and lighting. The report will also include recommendations on how to improve the property’s energy efficiency. These recommendations could include installing loft insulation, double glazing, or solar panels.
Why Do Homeowners and Landlords in Mitcham Need One?
EPCs are required by law for all homes and buildings that are rented out or sold in the UK, including those in Mitcham, CR4. This means that if you are a landlord or homeowner looking to rent out or sell your home, you must have an up-to-date EPC before doing so. An EPC is valid for 10 years but if changes are made to the building that could impact its energy performance (i.e., new windows or insulation), then a new one may be required sooner than 10 years later.
The Benefits of Having an Energy Performance Certificate
Having an up-to-date EPC has many benefits for both landlords and homeowners alike. For starters, it can help identify areas where improvements could be made to reduce energy costs over time, helping save money on bills each month. Secondly, having an up-to-date certificate when selling or renting out a property will demonstrate that the building meets current regulations and standards set by law. Lastly, having a high rating on your certificate will make your home more attractive to potential buyers/tenants who may be looking for homes with lower running costs over time!
What Access Does an EPC Assessor Need?
An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) assessor typically needs access to various parts of a property during an inspection in order to assess its energy efficiency and generate an accurate EPC. Here are some of the areas and items that an EPC assessor may need to access during an inspection:
- All rooms: The assessor will need to enter and assess the energy efficiency of each room in the property, including bedrooms, living rooms, bathrooms, kitchens, and any other spaces.
- Heating and cooling systems: The assessor will need to inspect the property’s heating and cooling systems, including boilers, radiators, air conditioning units, and any other systems.
- Insulation: The assessor will need to check the level and quality of insulation in the property’s walls, roof, and floors.
- Lighting: The assessor will need to assess the energy efficiency of the property’s lighting fixtures, including light bulbs and fittings.
- Windows and doors: The assessor will need to inspect the condition and energy efficiency of the property’s windows and doors.
- Energy meters: The assessor may need to access the property’s energy meters in order to gather data about the property’s energy consumption.
In order to gain access to these areas and items, the EPC assessor will typically need to be given full access to the property, including any keys or security codes needed to enter the property and access different rooms and areas. It is also helpful if the property owner or occupant can provide the assessor with any relevant documentation or information about the property’s energy systems, such as service records or instruction manuals.
