Energy Performance Certification (EPC)
Buildings produce nearly half of the UK’s carbon emissions. How a building is constructed, insulated, heated, ventilated and the type of fuel it uses all affect the amount of carbon it emits.
The Government introduced Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) in 2008 as a way of showing how energy efficient a building is. An EPC is now required for new buildings and also for those being sold or rented.
At tadea, we have an expert team of accredited EPC assessors who can perform energy audits and produce Energy Performance Certificates and recommendation reports.
The certificates contain a wealth of important information regarding the current efficiency of your building – which will be designated with an energy efficiency rating between ‘A’ and ‘G’ (where ‘A’ is the most efficient). Also included is information on the potential savings that could be made, and the EPC’s recommendation report will set out the measures which will need to be taken if the building is to achieve its energy efficiency potential.
On top of helping to reduce their fuel bills and also their carbon emissions, those who follow the advice provided in the EPC report will be helping to making their properties more attractive to potential buyers or tenants – which means that getting an EPC is not only good for the environment, but it could be good for your financial future too.
