What is an EPC (Energy Performance Certificate)?

EPC Luton - Energy Performance Certificate

Alan Rance Surveyors draw from over 30 years’ experience in providing EPCs and Commercial EPCs in Dunstable and the surrounding areas to offer expert advice to all clients. An Energy Performance Certificate is a document that provides an energy rating for a building or property, based on its current output and its performance potential. It is a European Directive and is a legal requirement for marketing a property. It has also been widely considered an important tool in the fight against climate change.

The rating itself is given on a scale of A-G, A being the most energy efficient, G being the least. This is to tell any potential buyers how energy efficient the property is by collecting data which includes the age of the property and any extensions, construction, insulation and relevant fittings. An EPC will also give recommendations on ways to improve the energy efficiency, save money and thus help the environment.

When is an EPC Required?

Energy Performance CertificatesAn Energy Performance Certificate is required by law whenever you are planning on buying, selling or renting out a property. You are also required to provide an up to date EPC upon request when selling or renting out a property. Failure to do so can result in a hefty fine. Energy Performance Certificates provided by Alan Rance Surveyors offer clients a wealth of information concerning the efficiency of the property in question, ensuring that they can make an informed decision on a property purchase where needed.

Our licensed Surveyor will assess your property using RdSAP methodology; the Government approved standardised system for energy surveys on existing dwellings. The survey is non-invasive and can take between 0.75- 1.5 hours. They will explain the procedure and answer any queries you might have. We also provide Energy Performance Certificates for those not selling at the moment. This is ideal for those looking to request a detailed energy assessment with the purpose of reducing their energy costs.
