One of our accredited assessors will visit your property at the agreed time and perform a thorough visual inspection. After noting down all the relevant details and measurements, the assessor will calculate an EPC rating. In order to calculate an accurate rating and prepare a full report, the assessor will need to be able to access every part of the property.
When assessing a residential, commercial or public building and calculating an EPC rating, the following factors will be taken into account by your assessor:
The heating system installed in your property will have the most bearing on the EPC rating. In addition to noting the size and type of system installed, the assessor will note down the times that thermostats are set to turn the heating on and off and the temperature that each one is set to. It is important to leave each thermostat set to the times and temperatures that you normally use, otherwise the EPC rating will not reflect the true energy performance of your property.
Details of the lighting fixtures in your property will be noted by the assessor, including the number and type of fixtures present in each room. If you have not already done so, it is a good idea to replace any incandescent or CFL lighting fixtures with LED ones as they will help to reduce energy consumption in your property. You could improve the energy rating for your home or commercial premises by a point or two, simply by following this advice.
While heating will have the biggest impact on the final EPC rating, windows will play a bit part in the calculations too. Replacing any single glazing in your property with sealed, double-glazed units could help to improve the EPC rating significantly. The extra layer of insulation provided by double glazing makes buildings cheaper to heat in the wintertime because the property will be more energy efficient, which is good for your wallet and good for the environment as well.
This is another important factor in residential properties that the assessor will pay particular attention to. If there is currently no loft insulation in your property, a recommendation to have it installed is likely to be included in the report that you receive. It is estimated that as much as 33% of heat in a home can be lost through the loft if it is not properly insulated.
Other factors that the assessor will include in the EPC calculations include doors, hot water pipe insulation and any renewable energy technology that has been installed in your home or commercial property.
EPC ratings follow a similar format to the energy efficiency ratings that are given to modern kitchen appliances in the UK. Each property is awarded a rating between A and G, with A being the best rating possible and G the worst. If you want to let a property out in the UK, it needs to achieve a rating of C or better by 2025. If it does not, you could be liable to pay a substantial fine.

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 the UK you will need to purchase an EPC. This includes both residential and commercial properties. Since April 2018 it is also a legal requirement for the EPC rating to be a minimium of an 'E' rating in order for that property to be let to a tenant. For more information on EPCs read our ultimate guide to EPCs.
Who is responsible for obtaining an EPC?
When you are selling or renting your property, you, as the seller or landlord must provide the EPC. The certificate should be given to the prospective buyer or tenant prior to entering into a sale or lease agreement.
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.
The owner/ landlord will have to pay for this survey and we offer extremely competitive prices.
The survey is designed to be a non-invasive visual inspection and all information is to be gathered whilst on site. If there are any measures that cannot be seen i.e. cavity wall insulation, we will require the associated documentation to include this within our certificate.
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 by clicking here.
Should you have any questions or would rather place an order over the telephone you can call our team on 0203 397 8220. Our opening times are Monday - Friday 9am - 6pm.
