Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) – What is it?
The Government is complying with the Energy Performance of Building Directive (EPBD) with the introduction of the Energy Performance Certificate. The EPC shows an accurate record of the energy efficiency levels and CO2 emissions of a building, this is always done by using a standard table using A-G. A being very efficient and G being very inefficient.
All our energy surveys are performed by a fully qualified energy assessor who will visit the property and examines several key factors within the premises such as loft insulation, domestic Boiler, hot water tank, radiators, widows for double glazing and more. Once the information is obtained it is then inputted into a software program that will then carry out and calculate the level of energy efficiency and CO2 emissions.
The programme then proceeds to generate the level of energy efficiency in the property, this will also come with a recommendation report on ways to improve the energy rating, Assessortech can help you get the property to a good level, this will help improve your energy levels and ensure future saving on fuel costs.
There is a similar report which provides figures on the environmental impact. This report shows a table of estimated energy bills per annum and the potential for improved and lower fuel costs, but without any reference to the actual property energy costs.
