What Is an EPC?
An Energy Performance Certificate
(EPC) is a document that provides information about the energy efficiency of a property. It measures how much energy the building uses compared to other similar buildings, as well as its potential to reduce energy use. The certificate also includes recommendations on how to make the premises more energy efficient
. An accredited assessor will be able to carry out an assessment and generate an EPC report.
Why Do Homeowners and Landlords in St Clears Need Them?
In Wales, all homes have to have an EPC before being put up for sale or rented out. An EPC helps prospective buyers or tenants make informed decisions about which properties are most eco-friendly. For homeowners/landlords in St Clears who are looking to sell or rent their properties, having a good EPC rating can make their property more attractive than other similar properties on the market with lower ratings. It could also potentially increase the value of their home as well as reduce their energy bills over time if they decide to make any suggested improvements.
Benefits of Having an EPC
Getting an EPC for your property comes with several benefits for homeowners and landlords alike. Firstly, having an up-to-date Energy Performance Certificate can help you market your property better as prospective tenants will be able to easily assess the energy efficiency of your property before deciding whether or not they want to rent from you. Secondly, having an EPC means that you can avoid any potential fines resulting from non-compliance with government regulations. Finally, having an EPC helps you save money on energy bills since it will provide you with clear advice on how to make your home or building more efficient through insulation upgrades

In Wales, government regulations require all properties being built, sold, let or rented out from April 2018 onwards must meet minimum energy efficiency standards
set by the Welsh Government – this includes having an up-to-date Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). Homeowners and landlords who do not comply with this regulation are subject to fines of up £4,000 per violation of these standards. Therefore it is important for homeowners and landlords in St Clear to get an EPC before putting their property up for sale/rental so that they can avoid any potential penalties from the government due to non-compliance with these regulations.
Gather All of Your Documentation
The first step in preparing for your EPC assessment is to collect all of your relevant documents. This includes the deeds to the property, any planning permissions you may have received, warranties from appliances, and any other paperwork related to the building itself. You should also provide your energy assessor with access to any relevant utility bills so they can get a full picture of how your home uses energy.
Clean and De-Clutter Your Home
The energy assessor will need access to all areas of the property in order to properly inspect it, so make sure it’s clean and free of clutter before they arrive. Remove any furniture or decorations that could potentially block their access or obscure their view of certain features such as windows, radiators, boiler flues, and electrical outlets. This will ensure that they can carry out their inspection quickly and efficiently without having to move things around or search for hidden features.
Check All Appliances Are Working Properly
Your assessor will need to check that all appliances are working properly before completing their assessment. Make sure all light fixtures are functioning correctly, test that the heating system works as designed, and check that all windows open easily without jamming or sticking. If any appliances need repairs or replacements prior to the assessment, now is the time to do them so there are no delays on the day of the inspection.
