What Is An EPC?

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a document created by an accredited assessor that outlines the energy efficiency rating of a property. The assessment takes into consideration the building’s age, size, and construction materials used for its walls, roof, windows, and doors. The assessor also looks at any insulation present in the building, as well as its heating system type and efficiency level. After considering all these factors, the assessor assigns your property an energy efficiency rating between A-G (where A is most efficient).

 

Why Do Homeowners And Landlords in SW19 Need An EPC?

The primary reason homeowners and landlords in Wimbledon need an EPC is that it’s legally required when selling or renting out a residential property in England or Wales. If you fail to provide potential buyers or tenants with an EPC before marketing your property for sale or rent, you could be fined up to £5,000. An EPC can also help both parties understand how much money they might be spending on energy bills each year. For example, if your house has an A-rating for its energy efficiency level then potential buyers know they won’t have to spend as much money on heating compared to a house with a G-rating.

 

Benefits of Having an EPC

Having an EPC comes with many benefits for homeowners and landlords in Wimbledon, Colliers Wood, Morden and Merton Abbey. For starters, it allows buyers to compare different properties more easily when they are shopping around for their next home purchase. In addition, having an up-to-date EPC can help potential buyers make informed decisions about whether or not they would like to proceed with making a purchase. Lastly, it helps identify areas of concern within a home that may require repair or replacement before any sale takes place. This means that prospective buyers will have fewer worries when considering purchasing your property since they know exactly what needs improvement before signing any contracts!

 

What Does an Assessor Look for When They Visit a Property?

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) assessor is responsible for assessing the energy efficiency of a property in the UK. During a visit to a property, the assessor will typically look for several specific things, including:

  1. The age and construction of the property: The assessor will assess the age of the property and its construction type to determine its energy efficiency.
  2. The insulation of the property: The assessor will check the quality and quantity of insulation installed in the property, including the loft insulation, wall insulation, and floor insulation.
  3. The heating system: The assessor will assess the type and age of the heating system, the boiler efficiency, and the heating controls.
  4. The windows and doors: The assessor will check the age and quality of the windows and doors, including their energy efficiency rating.
  5. The lighting: The assessor will assess the type of lighting in the property and its energy efficiency, including the use of low-energy lighting such as LED bulbs.
  6. Any renewable energy sources: The assessor will check if the property has any renewable energy sources, such as solar panels or wind turbines.
  7. The air tightness of the property: The assessor will assess the air tightness of the property and check for any draughts.

All of this information is used to calculate the energy efficiency rating of the property, which is then displayed on the EPC certificate. The certificate also includes recommendations for improving the energy efficiency of the property, which can help reduce energy bills and carbon emissions.

An Energy Performance Certificate plays a crucial role in sustainable development by promoting energy-efficient buildings. By providing a clear rating system and actionable recommendations, an EPC helps property owners understand and reduce their carbon footprint. Implementing the suggested improvements can lead to significant energy savings and contribute to broader environmental goals, such as reduced greenhouse gas emissions and more sustainable resource use.

 

The assessment for an EPC is quite detailed. It involves an accredited assessor visiting the property to examine key elements like insulation, heating systems, windows, and lighting. The assessor also considers the property’s size, layout, and construction details. This comprehensive evaluation ensures the Energy Performance Certificate provides an accurate reflection of the property’s energy efficiency.

 

Yes, multiple EPCs can be issued for a single property over time, especially if significant changes or upgrades have been made. Each new Energy Performance Certificate will reflect the property’s current energy efficiency status, taking into account any improvements or alterations since the last assessment. Property owners often update their EPC after major energy-efficient renovations to accurately represent the property’s improved status.

If you lose your Energy Performance Certificate document, you can typically retrieve it from the national EPC register where it was originally filed. In the UK, for example, you can access your EPC online using your report reference number or property address. It’s important to keep this information handy as you might need to present your EPC when selling or renting your property.

While an EPC rating itself may not directly affect your insurance premiums, the factors that contribute to a better EPC rating, such as a more secure and efficient heating system, updated electrical installations, and improved structural integrity can be viewed favourably by insurers. These enhancements can indicate a lower risk profile for the property, potentially leading to more favourable insurance terms.

For properties under construction, an EPC isn’t required until the building is completed. However, a Predicted Energy Assessment (PEA) is often provided during the construction phase to give an estimate of what the final EPC rating is expected to be. This is particularly useful for new builds and is often required to sign off on the building control stages.

 

An EPC is one of several green building certifications and assessments available. While it provides a specific focus on energy efficiency and carbon emissions, other certifications like LEED or BREEAM offer a broader evaluation of a building’s environmental impact, including water usage, materials, and waste management. Property owners seeking comprehensive green credentials might consider pursuing multiple certifications to highlight different aspects of sustainability.

What to expect when a Domestic Energy Assessor comes to your property

Every Domestic Energy Assessor / DEA will have their own order and format of carrying out the EPC depending on the software that they use and their personal preference to efficiency.
