ENERGY PERFORMANCE CERTIFICATES – EPCs
ecoEPCs provide both Residential and Commercial Energy Performance Certificates for properties throughout Surrey, Middlesex, Sussex and SW London. We have been providing EPCs since August 2007 when legislation was first introduced requiring all domestic properties to have a Residential EPC. In the following year EPCs were required for all commercial premises and ecoEPCs added the Commercial energy assessment survey to its range of services.
EPCs were introduced as part of Europe’s commitment to the Kyoto Agreement in order to help improve the energy efficiency of commercial and residential buildings. It is one part of a wide range of measures across Europe to address the issue of climate change and reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.
If you are intending to sell or let a residential or commercial property you will need a certificate within 7 days of the commencement of marketing. The Energy Certificate will need to be included on the property details in any marketing material or brochures. The certificate provides an energy rating from ‘A’ to ‘G’ depending on the efficiency of the building. The certificate will also provide recommendations to improve the efficiency the property.
EPCs can only be produced by accredited energy assessors who have the necessary skills to survey the many types of residential and commercial premises in the UK. ecoEPCs are fully accredited to provide EPCs for both residential and commercial properties.
