Domestic Energy Performance Certificates

EPC Graph

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is required for all domestic and commercial buildings in the UK that are available to rent or buy. Getting an EPC survey completed on your own home can help you find ways to save money on your energy bills and improve the comfort of your home.

EPCs and feed-in tariffs

The Government feed-in tariff (FIT) is available to customers in England, Wales and Scotland who have solar PV fitted in their properties. Your building’s EPC rating must be band D or above to qualify and the certificate must be less than 10 years old.

How much?

We offer a simple pricing structure for EPCs

If you live in the DE, NG, S or SK postcode areas the cost of the assessment is £40!

Simple single price.

We offer our services further afield however there is an additional charge for this.

If however you have multiple properties in an area or are interested in our services on a contract basis please get in touch.

Useful Information

The EPC certificate tells you how efficient a building is at using energy. In simple terms the EPC survey takes into account the age and construction of the building, its heating and lighting, any insulation and any renewable technologies. These are then calculated alongside some base heating and usage patterns to give the rating; A to G (very efficient to inefficient). Most properties in the UK fall inside the bands C to E. It is a guide to whoever uses or lives in the building how expensive it will be to heat and light as well as the likely carbon emissions.

In addition to describing the current energy efficiency of the building, the EPC survey also shows how much the rating can be improved if certain improvements are made. These may include using energy-efficient light bulbs, lagging the loft space and insulating cavity walls.

It is an offence to not have an EPC certificate available to potential buyers as soon as you begin marketing your property and failure to supply a valid certificate can result in a £200 fine.

If you intend to sell or rent your property, either marketed or privately you are legally obliged to have an EPC. However there are some exemptions such as listed buildings, some HMOs and properties with limited habitation.

The certificate lasts 10 years, but should ideally be replaced if major works are undertaken. You can easily check if your building has a valid EPC certificate using the Landmark website
