As energy costs continue to escalate, there is an increasing interest in understanding the energy performance of a property.

All properties sold or let in the UK are legally obliged to have a valid EPC (there are a few exceptions to this requirement, including some listed buildings and detached buildings of less than 50sqm).

We have a team of specialist assessors who can provide a range of EPC and energy advisory services.

Types of EPCs

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is intended to provide vital information on a building’s energy efficiency and environmental friendliness, using categories on an A-G scale (A being the most efficient, G being the least efficient) and numerical ratings out of 100 to indicate prospective heat and power costs and levels of CO2 production. The certificate also indicates the level of improvement that can realistically be expected from having recommended changes to the property made.

A Commercial Energy Performance Certificate is required every time a non-residential dwelling is constructed, sold or rented out. A commercial EPC contains information about a property’s current energy use and typical energy costs as well as a list of recommendations about how to reduce energy use and save on running costs.
