Energy Performance & Renewable Technology Surveys

 

Domestic EPC Survey

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) for a domestic property will contain information on your home's energy use and carbon dioxide emissions.  The detailed recommendation report shows what you could do to help reduce the amount of energy you use and your carbon dioxide emissions. The report lists suggested improvements, like fitting loft insulation, and gives the possible cost savings per year, if the improvements are made. We will also offer guidance on what funding or grants may be available for the measures reported.

Commercial EPC Survey

If you have a commercial property that you are going to sell or rent out, you will need a Commercial EPC. If you have a public building and you require a Display Energy Certificate (DEC) then we will provide you with a list of Energy Assessors who are accredited to provide this service. 

 

ECO EPC Survey 

The Government Initiative ECO Scheme is designed to help those on benefits and suffering fuel poverty by offering free heating & insulation measures whilst reducing the carbon output of the UK's housing stock.  To qualify for the scheme you will need a full ECO eligibility & measures survey.  ECO Eligibility Surveys are conducted FREE of CHARGE to eligible property owners and private rented tenants.  To see if you qualify please complete the Online Survey for a 24 hour response.

 

 

 

Green Deal Survey

A Green Deal Survey will commence with a domestic EPC survey.  The domestic EPC is based primarily around the buildings structure and dynamics.  This is then followed by an 'Occupancy Assessment' which looks at how energy is consumed by the buildings occupants.  From this an Energy Performance Certificate and Green Deal Report will be produced. The Green Deal report will look at possible behavioural changes and physical upgrades as ways to improve energy efficiency, potentially at no upfront cost thanks to Green Deal Finance / Green Deal Grants.

 

 

Solar PV Survey

Since April 2013 all properties being fitted with solar PV panels are required to have an EPC rating of at least a D grade if they are to qualify for the higher rate Feed in Tariff (FIT). Solar PV EPC surveys can take place before or after the install. As the rating will be better with the panels in place, you may well want to wait and have the panels included in the Solar EPC, however before you place an order you want to be sure that the property will be capable of achieving that all important D grade.

 

 

 

On Construction & Predicted EPC Survey

If you are planning a new build and require a Predicted Energy Assessment (PEA).   If you have completed or are near completing the building of a new home, you will require an On Construction Energy Performance Certificate (OCEPC).  Surveyours can provide you with a list of Energy Assessors who are accredited to provide this service.
