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.

Why You Must Pay Attention To The EPC Inspection

The rise of the green building movement has brought about a new era of sustainable business practices. One such practice is energy performance certificate (EPC) inspection. Energy efficiency is key to preserving both our environment and our wallet, and EPC inspection is one way to make sure your building is achieving the most efficient results. 

Here, we will briefly overview what EPC is, why it's important, and some tips on achieving the most successful EPC inspection.


What Is The EPC Inspection

An energy performance certificate (EPC) inspection is the first step of the green building certification process and is a requirement for many certifications. The EPC inspection evaluates your building's energy use, emissions, and indoor air quality.

 The potential benefits of an EPC inspection include the following:

  • Improved energy efficiency. 
  • Reduced greenhouse gas emissions. 
  • Better indoor air quality. 
  • Higher property values. 

Ensure all required documentation is ready, including copies of the project plans, specifications, warranties and licenses; gather any photos or videos that may be useful during the inspection; review any updated HVAC/lighting system specs with your contractor(s), if applicable; and determine what changes you may need to make to your building in order to pass the inspection.


What Does An EPC Inspection Do?

An energy performance certificate (EPC) inspection is a process by which an energy consultant checks the efficiency of a building or property. The EPC is a voluntary certification scheme that sets out minimum requirements for buildings to improve their energy efficiency. 

An EPC inspection can help identify problems with your building's energy usage and give you the information you need to make improvements. An EPC also helps reduce your carbon emissions and save you money on your energy bills.


How To Acquire An Epc Inspection

The importance of energy performance certificate (EPC) inspection cannot be overstated. An EPC can help you identify and correct energy-inefficient practices in your facility, saving you money on utility bills and improving air quality.

There are a few things you need to know in order to obtain an EPC:

  • What type of equipment needs to be inspected: commercial or industrial? 
  •  How often should the equipment be inspected? Annually is typical, but some companies require more frequent inspections. 
  •  What documentation will be required? A signed declaration from the facility owner certifying that appropriate EPC testing was performed and documenting any findings. 
  •  What is involved in performing the inspection? The inspector will typically inspect the entire building, including mechanical, lighting, HVAC systems and windows/doors. Some companies provide pre-inspection reports which outline specific areas that need attention. 
  •  Pre-testing is also available for certain types of equipment; this allows you to identify potential problems before they become major issues. 

 Once you have determined the type of equipment that needs to be inspected and how often it should be checked, the next step is to get the documentation required for an EPC. A signed declaration from the facility owner certifying that appropriate testing was performed will suffice most times, but some companies may require additional documentation, such as diagrams or photos illustrating where improvements should be made. If pre-testing is being done, this information must also be provided in order.


What Is The Qualification For An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) Inspection

An energy performance certificate (EPC) inspection is a valuable tool that can help you identify and correct any deficiencies in your building's energy efficiency. 

The EPC inspector will walk through your building, checking for things like:

  • Insufficient insulation levels
  • Leaks in your building envelope
  • Inadequate lighting fixtures and luminaires

How Easy Is It Not To Be Found Guilty Of An Energy Performance Certificate (Epc) Inspection

One of the most important aspects of energy efficiency is verifying that your home or business is taking advantage of available energy savings. In order to do this, you'll need an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). The EPC inspection process can be tricky to adhere to if you need help figuring out where to start. 

Here are tips for making sure your EPC inspection goes smoothly: 

  • Make a List: Before starting the inspection, make a list of all the items you'll need from your inspector – including any paperwork or permits needed. This will help speed up the process and ensure no major mishaps occur.
  • Have All Documents Ready: Make sure all documents related to the property being inspected are in order, such as a current occupancy permit or building permit. Please have these documents ready to ensure the inspection and avoid fines.
  • Plan Ahead for Weather Conditions: If weather conditions are expected during the EPC inspection, be prepared by having parking clearances marked and any flammable materials well away from doors and windows – even if they're not open at the time of inspection.
  • Prepare for Privacy Issues: If there may be areas inside your home or business where people won't be allowed access, be aware that inspectors may need to take photos and/or video footage in these areas in order to complete their report correctly. Make sure everyone knows where these recordings will take place, so there are no surprises later on.

The Importance Of Energy Performance Certificate (Epc) Inspection

There are numerous reasons to take your energy performance certificate (EPC) inspections seriously, including the following:

  1. Properly maintained and inspected buildings can reduce energy consumption by as much as 20% on average. A properly maintained building is also more comfortable and less likely to suffer from health problems. 
  2. Energy efficiency measures reduce your carbon footprint. Reducing your carbon footprint saves you money and helps protect the environment. 
  3. Improper installation or maintenance of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) can lead to serious structural issues in a building, which could result in costly repairs or even loss of occupancy. 
  4. If there are any problems with your building's energy efficiency, a failing EPC inspection may be the first step in obtaining proper repair or replacement work.

Frequently Asked Questions

An EPC inspection is a professional assessment of a building's energy performance. The EPC assessor will look at all aspects of the building, from the design and construction of the structure to the way it is used and operated. This includes everything from the heating, cooling and lighting systems to waste management and recycling. An EPC inspection can be a valuable tool for businesses and homeowners alike. For businesses, an EPC inspection can help identify energy-efficiency opportunities that can be cost-effectively implemented. For homeowners, an EPC inspection can help protect their home's energy efficiency by identifying potential improvements. In addition to helping businesses and homeowners save money on energy costs, an EPC inspection can also help ensure that buildings are safe and compliant with local regulations. By addressing any potential issues early on, buildings can avoid expensive repairs or citations down the road.
When it comes to your property, it's always important to ensure that you're taking care of your energy needs and that your home is as energy efficient as possible. One way to do this is through the use of an energy performance certificate (EPC) inspection. Here's a quick overview of what an EPC inspection entails: First, a qualified inspector will visit the property and take measurements and readings of various aspects of the building, including insulation levels, airtightness, ventilation and ductwork. They'll also check out the electrical system and any appliances that may be using a lot of energy. After compiling their findings, the inspector will then produce an EPC report which will give you detailed information on how well your home is performing in terms of energy efficiency. By following the recommendations in the report, you can save money on your utility bills and improve your home's overall comfort and livability.

There is no one answer to this question, as it depends on your area's specific circumstances and the laws. However, generally speaking, if you own or operate a property that uses energy, you are obligated by law to have an EPC inspection performed on it. This means that an EPC inspector will visit the property to look for potential problems with how the building uses energy.

The benefits of having an EPC inspection performed on your property include the following:

  • Knowing where your property stands with respect to energy efficiency
  • Detecting any potential problems early so they can be fixed before they become bigger issues
  • Make sure you are complying with all applicable energy laws
