Frequently Asked Questions

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a document that provides information about the energy efficiency of a property. It rates the building’s energy performance on a scale from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and offers recommendations to improve energy efficiency.

An EPC is a legal requirement for most properties in UK. It is necessary when selling or renting out a property to provide potential buyers or tenants with information about its energy efficiency. Additionally, it helps to identify ways to save energy and reduce utility bills.

Typically, you will receive your Energy Performance Certificate within 24 to 48 hours after the assessment. We strive to provide a quick turnaround to ensure you have the necessary documentation for your property.

In UK, an EPC is valid for a period of 10 years. After this period, you will need to renew the certificate if you plan to sell or rent out the property again.

Absolutely! Our EPC assessors are qualified professionals with extensive experience in energy efficiency assessments. They follow standardized procedures and use reliable data to ensure the accuracy of the EPC rating and recommendations.

Yes, definitely! Improving your property’s energy efficiency not only helps the environment but also brings several benefits to you as the owner. It can lead to reduced utility bills, increased property value, enhanced comfort for occupants, and a positive impact on the property’s marketability.

While most residential and commercial properties require an EPC, there are a few exemptions. Some buildings, such as places of worship, certain listed buildings, and temporary structures with a planned use of fewer than two years, may be exempt from obtaining an EPC. It’s best to consult with our team to determine if your property falls under any exemptions.

Yes, you can obtain a Predicted Energy Assessment (PEA) for properties that are still under construction or have not yet been built. A PEA provides an estimated energy rating based on the building’s design and specifications. Once the construction is complete, you can update the PEA to a full EPC.

Yes, failing to provide a valid EPC when selling or renting out a property can result in penalties. The specific penalties may vary depending on local regulations, but they can include fines or delays in the property transaction process. It’s essential to ensure your property has a valid EPC to avoid any legal complications.

Absolutely! The EPC recommendations are valuable guidelines to help you make your property more energy-efficient. They may include suggestions like installing better insulation, upgrading heating systems, or using energy-efficient lighting. Implementing these measures can lead to cost savings and a more eco-friendly property.
