Domestic Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs)
Whether you are in Wellingborough, Kettering, Northampton or any of the surrounding Northamptonshire villages our Domestic Energy Assessor will be happy to supply your Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). Our Domestic Energy Assessor would need to visit your property and will be looking at the construction type of external walls and floors, the construction dates of the original building (and any extensions), the type of windows you have, how your home is heated, how your hot water is supplied, what type of lighting is used and the nature of any insulation to walls, floors and roofs. An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) inspection typically takes approx ¾ hour to 1 hour depending on the complexity of the property.
Non Domestic Energy Performance Certificates
Our Commercial Energy Assessor can provide non-domestic Energy Performance Certificates (commonly called a commercial EPC) throughout Wellingborough, Kettering, Northampton, Corby, Bedford, Peterborough and similar areas. The information our Energy Assessor will require to provide your Energy Performance Certificate relates to the building as a whole together with an understanding of any specific zones or individual spaces (such as retail areas, office space, storage space, kitchens, operations rooms etc). To complete the Energy Performance Certificate our assessor will also need the dimensions of the building as a whole together with a breakdown of the dimensions of the individual zones. Additional information that our Commercial EPC assessor will need will include the heating and ventilation services for each zone, lightings and controls used in each zone, the materials used to construct the building and any information on the thermal efficiency of those materials such as the roof, walls, windows, doors and wall insulation. Any plans of the building, if available, are a great help to our Commercial Energy Assessor. If there are no plans we may need to survey the building and gather information which may add to the overall cost. Any records that relate to the original construction of the building together with any subsequent modifications would also be very helpful. Due to the complexity of commercial buildings a Commercial Energy Performance Certificate assessment can take several hours.
