The EPC is an electronic certification which shows the energy rating of your property on a scale from 0 to 100 with 0 being very low and 100 being the best. Also, it makes use of a scale of A (green) to G (red) with A being very energy efficient and G being very poor. The EPC cert takes into consideration the energy consumed by lighting, heating and hot water. It also provides an estimate of the properties annual energy costs.
What happens during EPC check?
To produce an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) you will need to hire a qualified individual known as Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA). The assessor will visit your property at the agreed time in order to survey and record aspects of the property such as the fabric and services (gas or oil). The DEA is required to take photographic evidence of the glazing, lighting, insulation, radiators and heating control systems.
As part of the home energy check the Domestic Energy Assessor will measure the property in order to produce the total area and heat loss perimeter.
