Domestic EPC and Floorplans

Future Energy has extensive experience of producing domestic Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs). An EPC rates the energy performance of a building on a scale of A to G, where A is the highest level of energy efficiency, Right now, the average grade is D.

An EPC must be produced whenever a building is:

  • Constructed
  • Sold
  • Let
  • Wanting to claim FIT (Feed-in-Tariff) for Solar P.V.

Future Energy have assessors that can assess any residential development, from single dwellings through to major construction projects and multiple property portfolios. Our client base ranges from housing associations, letting agents, contractors and developers to private landlords, owners and occupiers.

Our accredited energy assessors are qualified to undertake domestic energy assessments for both new and existing buildings. They evaluate proposed construction details or carry out a detailed survey of the building, perform the necessary SAP calculations and generate the certificate, before lodging it on the Government database, Landmark. The EPC is accompanied by an Recommendations Report, which outlines energy-saving measures and recommendations for securing a higher EPC rating.

What happens during an EPC?

Your Energy assessor will inspect the following:

  • Measure your property
  • Take photos
  • Construction Type and Energy Impact
  • Doors and Windows
  • Heating and Ventilation
  • Amount of Insulation
  • Ask questions regarding your property.

This information will allow the assessor to generate an energy performance certificate. The certificate will establish the energy consumption efficiency of your entire property.

The assessor will create an SAP rating value.  This is done using a computer system that uses the Reduced Data Standard Assessment Procedure, (RDSAP).

Current energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions are compared per EPC ratings.  The comparison will show you what your home can achieve.  The potential numbers are based on estimates of what your home’s energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions could be with the implementation of energy saving measures.

The same calculations are used to grade all homes, so different properties can be compared for energy efficiency.

As a landlord, it is your responsibility by law to provide your tenant with an EPC.  Failure to provide your tenant with an EPC can lead you to a heavy fine. Our domestic EPC certificate prices start from £50, for more information, please click on our contact us page or give us a call.

The person selling the house, the landlord or the letting agent must show you the EPC if you’re buying or renting.
