By UK law, a domestic Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) must be obtained prior to marketing when a property is built, sold or let. An EPC contains information on how energy efficient a property is, its impact on the environment and the typical costs involved in running it.
In addition, and EPC provides recommendations on how to reduce energy use and save money. Energy efficient homes are shown to be more appealing to buyers and tenants due to their lower running costs.
In an average size property, an EPC assessment takes around an hour to complete. The Domestic Energy Assessor will be looking at features such as property age/type/size, heat sources, windows and light fittings.
The Domestic Energy Assessor will need to survey every room, including any loft space if possible. The assessment process is designed to be non-intrusive, so it is not necessary to provide access beneath flooring or within walls.
At Roost we provide a simple, efficient service at a competetive price. All you need to do is contact us using our booking form and we'll help you arrange a time for a qualified domestic energy assessor to visit and survey your property.
