What our clients say about our service
I’d like to thank EnergyPerformanceCertificates.co.uk for their efficient service. The whole process was very quick and from email to printing off my EPC it took just 48 hours. The energy assessor came round at the agreed time and was very friendly and professional too. If you need an EPC I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend EnergyPerformanceCertificates.co.uk, thank you.
I just wanted to thank you for for delivering my survey as quickly as you did. Was impressed with the service and the person that performed the checks was a pleasure to deal with.
No complaints here, you were great, thanks.
This is the first time we needed to order an EPC and it was quick and hassle free. We would be more than happy to recommend your service to others, thanks Belinda and David.
I choose EnergyPerformanceCertificates.co.uk because their website looked professional and they were cheaper than the price my estate agent quoted me. Sometimes when you pay less you can expect to receive an inferior service, but with Energyperformancertificates.co.uk the service was exceptional. I ordered my certificate online at 9pm, and the following day at 3pm it was completed. I couldn’t believe how quick and smooth the whole process was.
Great job from start to finish, thanks guys.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to provide you with some feedback, overall everything was great. If I wanted to be pedantic then the man who came to assess the property was 5 minutes late, however he did call me to say that there was the chance he could be late due to traffic. As I said overall a great service and more than happy to recommend. Thank you.
Who We Are
We at Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) are committed to providing high quality energy assessments and revisions directly to our customers for them to improve their energy efficiency levels.
We work with over 2,000 Domestic Energy Assessors nationwide, who are assigned to provide you with a professional, prompt and courteous service at a competitive price.
What is an EPC?
The Government is complying with the Energy Performance of Building Directive (EPBD) with the introduction of the Energy Performance Certificate.
The EPC shows a record of the energy efficiency levels and CO2 emissions of a building, by using a standard table from A to G (A being very efficient, G being very inefficient).
Firstly, the energy survey is performed by a qualified energy assessor who visits the property and examines key items within the premises such as loft insulation, domestic boiler, hot water tank, radiators, windows for double glazing, etc.
Once this information is obtained it is then placed into a software programme which carries out and calculates the level of energy efficiency and CO2 emissions.
This programme then proceeds to generate the level of energy efficiency in the property, with a recommendation report on the ways to improve the energy ratings by using cost effective and low and zero carbon generated systems. This will help improve your energy levels and ensure future savings on fuel costs.
There is a similar report which provides figures on the environmental impact. This report shows a table of estimated energy bills per annum and the potential for improved and lower fuel costs, but without any reference to the actual householder bills.
Who requires an EPC?
As of the 21st May 2010, if you decide to place your property on the market for sale or rent in England and Wales you will need to purchase an EPC.
Who is responsible for obtaining an EPC?
With a new build it is the responsibility of the person carrying out the work. They must provide the owner with the certificate and inform the Building Control Officer or Approved Inspector that this has been completed within the specified time.
When you are selling or renting your property, you, as the seller or landlord must provide the EPC. The certificate is available free of charge and should be given to the prospective buyer or tenant prior to entering into a sale or lease agreement.
The householder will have to pay for this survey and we offer extremely competitive prices.
The survey is entirely non-invasive as the information provided to the assessor is given directly from the householder. For example, whether the property has cavity wall insulation or not, even when there is no evidence of drill holes present.
Can I market or rent the property before I receive the EPC?
As long as you have already ordered and paid for an EPC then you are permitted to put your property on the market or advertise it for renting purposes. We will make sure you receive confirmation of your order immediately after booking the EPC.
How do I order my EPC?
You can easily place your order for the EPC via this website or call the number available.
What should I look for in an EPC provider?
You should make sure that you have full access to your EPC for 10 years from your purchase date, as this is the length of its validation. Once you have purchased your EPC, it should be made available free of charge for your perusal. We are happy to provide you with access to download your EPC on our website at any time for your convenience.
