Andrew Kelly & Associates have trained professionals who can provide you with all the information you need about Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs). We have qualified Domestic Energy Assessors who will visit your home to undertake a full assessment of the property. Our professionals will be on hand to explain the “in and outs” of the process and discuss energy ratings and recommendations where appropriate.
By choosing Andrew Kelly EPCs as your EPC provider you are guaranteed a personal service. There is no “outsourcing” to external companies. We control the quality and production of your EPC from start to finish providing an efficient, friendly and experienced professional who will be able to provide you with advice and answer your questions on all aspects of the EPC.
Producing the EPC is a natural extension of the Andrew Kelly marketing process and therefore benefits from the Andrew Kelly Group’s commitment to high levels of customer service. The process is more efficient and easier to control when we deal with all of the tasks that must be completed prior to marketing.
An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is required for all homes whenever built, rented or sold. If you are buying or selling a home it is now law to have a certificate. They are also required on construction of new homes and are needed for rented homes the first time the property is let after 1 October 2008.
The certificate records how energy efficient a property is as a building and provides A-G ratings. These are similar to the labels now provided with domestic appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines.
They are produced using standard methods and assumptions about energy usage so that the energy efficiency of one building can easily be compared with another building of the same type. This allows prospective buyers, tenants, owners, occupiers and purchasers to see information on the energy efficiency and carbon emissions from their building so they can consider energy efficiency and fuel costs as part of their investment.
An EPC is always accompanied by a recommendation report that lists cost effective and other measures (such as low and zero carbon generating systems) to improve the energy rating. A rating is also given showing what could be achieved if all the recommendations were implemented.
The certificate is important because nearly 50 per cent of the UK's energy consumption and carbon emissions arise from the way our buildings are lit, heated and used. Even comparatively minor changes in energy performance and the way we use each building will have a significant effect in reducing energy consumption.
