EPC London - Energy Performance Certificate Commercial/Domestic

Commercial EPC London Property Certificate

If you have bought, sold or rented a property, it’s a legal requirement to have a valid EPC. Energy performance certificate (EPC) is a document which provides information about the energy efficiency of your property. It includes information on lighting, insulation, your heating system and more. So, whether you are renting or selling your domestic or commercial property, by carrying out an EPC and making the recommended changes you will increase its energy efficiency to a higher rank.

How much does an Energy Performance Certificate cost?

Wondering how much an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) cost? There’s no fixed rate, so you can expect to pay upwards of £59{EPC (1 – 3 bed property)} and around £120 for commercial property. This is why gathering a number of EPC quotes is tantamount to paying the right sum of money.

Energy Performance Certificates – Know More!

If you are a landlord or property owner in London and Wales, you are required by law to provide an EPC to prospective tenants or buyers. The authorized technician will test the energy efficiency of your property, on a scale of A to G, and tell you how energy-optimized your property is. The most efficient property with the lowest energy bills will be placed in band A.

If your property is not found to be energy efficient, the technician will give you suggestions to improve the ratings with few strategic solutions. In addition to reducing your energy bills, this approach can help reduce Carbon-di-oxide emissions.

EPC is now a legal requirement for all dwellings in the construction stage. The EPC is valid for 10 years. If there are any changes or repairs to thermal elements carried out during this time period, an updated EPC should be issued.

I have added insulation to my home, but it is not reflected in the EPC. Why is that?

Energy assessment for EPC is non-invasive. If roof, floor or wall insulation is to be taken into account during energy efficiency testing, there should be documentary or visual evidence to support. In the absence of this, it cannot be included.

Are storage heaters better than conventional electric heaters, with regards to energy efficiency?

Storage heaters are cheaper to run, making use of low rate night-time electricity. However, the total amount of electricity used by storage heaters are higher than that of conventional panel heaters. So, while energy efficiency is improved due to low running costs, high energy use worsens the environmental impact. Usually, storage heaters are recommended in EPC suggestions.

Is EPC a necessity to list a property in the market?

Yes! Since 9th January 2013, all advertisements for selling or renting property must clearly show energy rating of the building. If this is not complied with, it can lead to fines upto £200

What is the minimum EPC rating that qualifies a building for a new tenancy agreement?
