What is a Commercial EPC (Energy Performance Certificate)?

Commercial EPCsAlan Rance Surveyors are experts in Commercial EPC services in Dunstable and the surrounding area. The purpose of a commercial EPC is to provide an energy rating for a building, based on the performance potential of that building in particular. The rating is given two grades between A – G; A being the most efficient, G being the least efficient. The ‘current’ grade, is the grade the building is currently operating at, with the ‘potential’ grade achievable through the use of energy saving methods, such as switching to a renewable energy source or upgrading a boiler. Services such as lighting, heating and ventilation are taken into account as well as the way in which these services are controlled.

This rating may then be used by potential buyers or tenants to make comparisons between properties, as an EPC gives the buyer an indication of any central heating or electricity costs based on the grade given. Our commercial EPC is also accompanied by a secondary report that provides recommendations on how the energy performance of the building could be enhanced. This is provided together with an indication of the payback period. These recommendations are provided in four categories, all relating to the payback period.

When is a Commercial EPC Required?

Energy Performance CertificatesA Commercial EPC is required whenever you are selling, renting out or building a commercial property. The EPC must be up to date and failure to provide a recent commercial EPC could result in a hefty fine. Commercial Energy Performance Certificates provided by Alan Rance ensure that our clients have everything they need whether they are looking to buy, rent or even build new commercial premises. Our expertise ensures that your company is in safe hands.

Like residential assessments, our assessor has been trained to the highest of standards to assess the recommendation report and amend recommendations where appropriate. This makes the report much more suitable to your specific needs. Our experience in commercial property and energy assessment methods enables us to offer the very best and most up to date information.
