The certificates are commissioned by the seller (or their agent) from an accredited Energy Assessor, who visits the property to collect the relevant data and creates the certificate. This data includes the date, construction and location of the house and relevant fittings (heating systems, insulation or double glazing, for example).
Energy Performance Certificates tell you how energy efficient a home is on a scale of A-G. The most efficient homes - which should have the lowest fuel bills - are in band A.
The Certificate also tells you, on a scale of A-G, about the impact the home has on the environment. Better-rated homes should have less impact through carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
The average property in the UK is in bands D-E for both ratings. The Certificate includes recommendations on ways to improve the home's energy efficiency to save you money and help the environment
We provide a professional and reliable energy surveying service, with a prompt and efficient turnaround. We are fully accredited and fully insured.
Our business provides EPCs (Energy Performance Certificates) to homeowners, landlords, housing associations and agents of property of all sizes, from the smallest flat to the largest family home.
We seek to arrange the energy inspection with the home owner or tenant on the same day that we receive your instruction. We aim to produce the EPC within 24 hours of completing the inspection.
If you wish to go ahead we can make an appointment for a qualified and accredited Domestic Energy Assessor to visit your property.
To produce the certificate the inspector will measure the overall dimensions of your house or flat, and need access to all rooms to examine the windows, boiler, heating appliances, electric and gas meters and the loft or cellar space. All give vital indications to ascertain how well your house is performing - and how much money you may be wasting. This will take one to two hours depending on the size of the property.
We cover the whole of the Merseyside area.
