An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) provides home owners, tenants and buyers with information on the energy efficiency of their property. It gives the building a standard energy and carbon emission efficiency grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’ with A being the most efficient and G the least.
All homes are measured using the same assumptions and calculations, so that a tenant or purchaser can easily compare one home with another.
The EPC is required by law when building is constructed, sold or put up for rent. Landlords and owners are only required to produce and EPC for a property that is self-contained, and the certificate is then valid or 10years. An EPC is not required if a tenant rents a room with shared facilities.
Upon request we are happy to provide you with full details on the approved methodology for the delivery of EPC’s and their subsequent lodgement of the Governments national database.
Only Government approved and accredited Energy Assessors can produce Energy Performance Certificates. All assessors at CPL Services are accredited with Elmhurst Energy Systems Ltd.
