Energy Performance Certificates (Domestic EPC)
ABBE & City and Guilds Accredited & Stroma Certified
Energy Performance Certificates are a requirement when you buy, sell or rent a home. You now also need an EPC when performing many energy upgrades and installation of many renewable energy products such as solar PV. The survey/assessment can take up to 2 hours (depending on your house size etc.) and the assessor will need access to all areas of the house to make detailed measurements and identify key energy components. The assessor will also need access to the loft, he will also need to take many photographs for evidence purposes. We will run through a full requirement questionnaire over the telephone before we arrive.
We provide a comprehensive service carried out by fully qualified Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA) accredited by ABBE, City and Guilds & Stroma. Quality assured.
