ENERGY PERFORMANCE CERTIFICATES (EPC'S)
BMH have a fully trained Domestic Energy Assessor in house who can undertake EPC's for residential properties.
All domestic and commercial buildings in the UK available to buy or rent must have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). If you own a home, getting an energy performance survey done could help you identify ways to save money on your energy bills and improve the comfort of your home.
If you would like an EPC undertaking please contact us and we will be happy to arrange this.
What are EPC's?
Have you seen the Energy stickers that come on new appliances like washing machines and fridge-freezers? They generally show a scale with a rating indicated on them, indicating how energy-efficient the item is. EPC's are similar in that they let viewers know how costly a property will be to heat and light, and what its carbon dioxide emissions are likely to be.
An EPC also shows what the rating will be if improvements are made highlights cost-effective ways to better achieve a more favourable rating. Even if you rent, some improvements noted on the EPC may be worth implementing, such as switching to energy-efficient light bulbs.
An EPC is valid for 10 years from its issue date.
Why get an EPC?
An EPC needs to be available to potential buyers as soon as you start to market your property for sale or rent. The production of an EPC must be performed by an approved Domestic Energy Assessor.
