We’ve all become accustomed to the handy performance stickers on appliances which allow us to make informed choices about energy efficiency before we make a purchase. An Energy Report, also known as an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), is effectively the same thing for properties.
Why do I need an Energy Report?
An Energy Report rates the efficiency of your building from A to G (the former being very efficient and the latter being inefficient) and its carbon emissions. It’s also an effective way of highlighting how home improvements could save you money on your energy bills and improve your building’s energy efficiency rating.
EPCs, which are valid for 10 years, are required by law if you are wishing to sell your property. They’re also important if you wish to take advantage of the Government’s Feed In Tariff for solar panels. You can find out more about EPCs on the Government website.
Our team of assessors can carry out an Energy Report to identify ways in which you could make improvements to the energy efficiency of your building. This could be through installing renewable energy solutions, such as solar panels and heat pumps or through roof and loft insulation, double glazing or simply by switching to energy-efficient light bulbs.
How you’ll benefit
- Reduce your utility bills – after an Energy Report has been carried out you’ll be able to identify what improvements are needed to make your home more energy-efficient and reduce your energy bills
- Improve the energy rating of your home – essential if you’re considering selling your property or would just like to make home improvements to reduce your heating bills
- Keep it green – by improving the energy efficiency of your building you’ll reduce its carbon emissions and reduce the harmful impact on the environment
