Hi Niki was fine but you gave her the wrong date at the beginning to carry out the inspection so it was a week later than was arranged with you which was annoying for us having to take time off 2 weeks running!

Took a few days to get the certificate due to Bank hol and a software update but very friendly service. There was an email to explain about the software but it went to my spam so I hadn't seen it. I sent a text, which was promptly answered. I also received a text to inform me the cert had been sent, which was very helpful as that had also gone to my spam. This was at 7pm. So he had sent it out of normal working hours which, was really appreciated and shows he cares about his customer. Thank you!

Very satisfied with organisation, timeliness and performance during the visit. The process was low key and efficient to a level where my tenant was barely disturbed, having no adverse comments at all. Ensuing report was thorough and informative, issued in a reasonable timespan. Will happily use Furqan’s EPC services again in future, great work at a reasonable rate. Liked the website job request where I could add extra detail and requests, really useful as didn’t personally attend on the day.

Nirav did a great job, he was professional, contacted me ahead of schedule to arrange the logistics of his visit, was on time for the appointment and did his assessment in the allocated time and kept me informed on the necessary steps to take in order to successfully complete the assessment. I would recommend booking Nirav for your EPC.

Introducing The EPC Checklist

When it comes to construction, many different factors need to be considered to ensure a smooth and successful process. One of the most important things to remember is the EPC checklist. 

This checklist is designed to help you ensure that all the necessary steps are taken to achieve your property’s Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating. In the UK, selling or renting newly build properties mandates having an EPC rating. This blog post aims to provide a comprehensive overview of building an EPC checklist in the UK, including its definition, its necessity, and the steps to obtain one for your property. 

By the end of this post, you will gain a thorough understanding of the EPC checklist and how to ensure your property complies with the required standards.


What Is An EPC Checklist?

An EPC checklist is a list of energy-saving measures for your home or business. It helps you understand how your property uses energy and what improvements could be made to make it more efficient. When a property is built, sold or rented, an EPC is required by law and can be used to assess the cost of energy-saving improvements.


Information Contained In A Building EPC Checklist

A typical building EPC checklist will contain the following information:

  • The name and address of the property.
  • The type of property (e.g. detached house, semi-detached house, flat etc.).
  • The size of the property in square metres.
  • The date of the EPC.
  • The date of the certificate’s expiry.
  • The current energy efficiency rating of the property.
  • The potential energy efficiency rating of the property.
  • Recommendations on how to improve the energy efficiency of the property.

How To Prepare Your EPC Checklist

You can either create your own EPC checklist or use an online EPC calculator. Alternatively, you could hire a professional energy consultant to carry out an assessment of your property. A professional energy consultant will provide you with a tailored EPC checklist. Below are a few steps to guide you:

  1. Check the building for energy performance.
  2. Make a list of all the equipment and materials used in the building.
  3. Find out the energy efficiency of each item on the list.
  4. Select the most energy-efficient products and materials.
  5. Estimate the cost of implementing the selected products and materials.

How To Get Your EPC Checklist

If you need an EPC checklist for your commercial property in the UK, there are a few things you should know. First, an EPC is required by law if you are selling or leasing a commercial building. Second, the EPC must be conducted by a qualified assessor; third, the assessment must be registered with the government’s Landmark service.

The process of getting an EPC checklist is quite simple. First, you will need to find a qualified assessor in your area. You can do this easily through our platform. Once you have found an assessor, you will need to schedule an appointment with them to come to your property and conduct the assessment.

Once the assessment is complete, the assessor will provide you with a report outlining your property’s energy efficiency. This report will also include a list of recommended measures that you can take to improve the energy efficiency of your property. Finally, once you have implemented all of the recommended measures, you will need to register your property’s EPC with the Landmark service.


Benefits Of An EPC Checklist

An EPC checklist can help you save money on your energy bills, make your home more comfortable to live in and avoid expensive repairs in the future. Here are some of the benefits of having an EPC checklist:

  1. Cost Savings: You will save money on your energy bills.
    An EPC checklist can help you identify ways to improve the energy efficiency of your home, which can lead to lower energy bills by minimizing waste and improving the overall efficiency of their heating, cooling, and electrical systems. In addition, if you plan to sell your home, an EPC can help you get a higher price.
  2. Comfort Improvement: You will make your home more comfortable to live in.
    Improving your home’s energy efficiency can also make it more comfortable to live in. For instance, better insulation and efficient heating systems can improve temperature regulation within the property.
  3. Long-Term Planning: You will avoid expensive repairs in the future.
    Making changes to improve your home’s energy efficiency can also help you avoid costly repairs in the future. For example, upgrading to a newer model could save you money on fuel bills and prevent expensive breakdowns if you have an older boiler that is not very efficient.
  4. Market Differentiation: A high EPC rating can differentiate a property
    For rental properties or properties for sale, attracting environmentally conscious renters or buyers looking for energy-efficient homes.
  5. Environmental Impact: Reducing energy consumption is crucial for minimizing a property’s carbon footprint
    An EPC checklist encourages practices that are more environmentally friendly, contributing to the broader effort of reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
