Over 1 Million homes go on the housing market each year, all require an Energy Performance Certificates. Only accredited and suitably qualified Domestic Energy Assessors (and existing Home Inspectors) will be allowed to carry out the Energy Assessment.

All rental properties with a new tenancy, along with sold houses in England and Wales will also require an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

DEA’s will collect data on the dimensions, construction, heating and hot water provision of the property, and enter the information into an approved software programme.

This, in turn, will produce the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). The first part of the certificate is a benchmarked measure of the home’s energy performance on a scale A to G, where A is very efficient and G is at the other end of the spectrum.

The second part of the EPC is cost effective recommendations for improving the energy performance of the home, information on renewable energy and recommendations on energy efficient behaviour. The Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA) will have to interpret whether these are practical for his/her client.

What is an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) ?

The Energy Performance Certificate will look broadly similar to a certificate on a refrigerator. Its purpose is to record, in a clear unambiguous format, how energy efficient the home is as a building. Using colour charts, the EPC records the current rating and compares this with the rating at which the owner or tenant should aim.
