Darren Tait

Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne And Wear

I am a Domestic Energy Assessor, and Retrofit assessor based in Newcastle.  I cover the Newcastle and Gateshead areas supplying EPC assessments and floor plans, for landlords and owners. I take pride in my work and the quality and accuracy of my reports.  I am meticulous with appointments and you never have to worry about waiting all day for me call, as each appointment gets given a time slot.

Services

Appointment details


Upon confirmation of the service, an accredited Energy Assessor visits the property to collect the required data for assessing energy features based on the construction, type of dwelling, and relevant fittings (i.e, heating systems, insulation, windows, fixed outlets, lighting, etc). Please allow easy and full access for the assessor to inspect all heating and lighting fixtures/fittings including the boilers, hot water cylinders and the electric meter. The entire onsite process generally takes 30 minutes to 1 hour. Following the assessment, an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is generated using government-approved software, which typically takes 1-3 business days, and will be emailed to you once ready. Once the EPC is lodged it will appear on the national Domestic EPC register.


The EPC should not be read as a comment on the overall condition of the property, nor will it cover any items that would be included in a building survey.


An EPC is a legal requirement for the property to be marketed for sale or let. The certificate is valid for 10 years although it is recommended to renew the certificate every time works are carried out to the property that could improve its energy performance ie. replacement boiler/windows, loft or wall insulation. 


Our EPC prices are calculated on the number of bedrooms, location and availability and carried out by professional, verified assessors who are certified with the official EPC Register.



What does an EPC contain?


  • A record of how energy efficient a building is and its environmental impact
  • Information on the property’s typical energy costs
  • Suggested recommendations on reducing energy use and saving money
  • An energy efficiency rating of the property from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient)

Appointment details


Upon confirmation of the service, an accredited Energy Assessor visits the property to collect the required data for assessing energy features based on the construction, data, and relevant fittings (i.e, heating systems, insulation, windows, fixed outlets, lighting, etc). Please allow easy and full access for the assessor to inspect all heating and lighting fixtures/fittings including the boilers, hot water cylinders and the electric meter. Given the size and complexity of some commercial buildings, this inspection can take a number of hours or even days. Following the assessment, a Non-Domestic Energy Performance Certificate (which includes two documents: an EPC certificate and a separate Recommendations Report) is generated using government-approved software, which typically takes 1-3 business days, and will be emailed to you once ready. Once the EPC is lodged it will appear on the national Commercial EPC register.


A Non-Domestic EPC is a legal requirement for all commercial buildings exceeding 50 sq meters. The law states that a Non-Domestic EPC is required when you market the premises for let or sale, a building under construction is finished or where there are changes to the number of parts used for separate occupation and these changes involve providing or extending fixed heating, air conditioning or mechanical ventilation systems. 


The EPC must also be displayed in your commercial building if the total useful floor area is over 500 sq meters, the building is frequently visited by the public or an EPC has already been produced for the building’s sale, rental or construction

The certificate is valid for 10 years although a new certificate may be required if the building is subject to renovations, alterations, extensions etc. 


Commercial buildings are divided into three categories for EPC purposes, depending on size, heating and cooling systems, etc. For further information please get in touch with us.
