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!

Paula arrived at my house and knocked at the doors back and front with no answer.She rang me to say she was unable to gain access to the property,I asked her to open the door and shout for my daughter in law.There was no reply and she entered and called out up the stairs, my daughter daughter in law was in a bedroom.Paula explained that she was there to carry out the EPC survey and did so.Paula rang me again to say it was complete and I would receive my certificate online.

Andrew was brilliant, he happily changed the time of my appt that I had requested, he was very nice, easy to talk to and I was very satisfied with the job. Definitely got the right person, would fully recommend using him.

Emma was very professional and helpful. The inspection was thorough and efficient and the link to the certificate was available before Emma even left the property!
Kat F.
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!
Mark S.
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.
Z C.
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.
Jeremy C.
Aran provided a call on the morning to confirm his arrival time, he arrived promptly and explained the process fully and completed the work quickly and professionally.

Very professional. Called me to confirm the time, notifies me of a slight delay. Friendly and personable during the appointment. The report was ready less than 24 hrs later. Definitely recommend

How To Improve EPC Rating

To achieve high ratings for your buildings from the Building Research Establishment, you need to understand how EPC rating works. Here, we will provide you with an overview of EPC and some tips on how to improve EPC rating. From analysing your building’s energy use to improving ventilation and insulation, you will learn everything you need to ensure your business is running as efficiently as possible.

Why You Should Improve Your Home’s EPC Rating

Improving your home’s EPC rating can help:

  • Reflect the environmental benefits of your home and lead to a reduction in your electricity bill.
  • Increase your property’s rating and value in the market and help increase the number of interest in your property.
  • Lead to a higher Return on Investment (ROI).
  • By reducing energy costs and saving money on your monthly utility bills, you will be able to improve the living conditions in your home.

How To Improve EPC Rating Of Your Home

There are several ways you can improve your home’s EPC rating. One way to improve your home’s EPC rating is to reduce the energy used by appliances such as TVs, air conditioning units, light bulbs and computers. You can also improve the insulation of your walls and roofs and install green energy technologies such as solar panels and wind turbines.

There are a few things that you can do to help improve your home’s EPC rating, such as:

  • Wall Insulation
    Installing wall insulation can be a really simple way to increase your EPC rating. There are two types of insulation - internal and external - and around one-third of all heat lost in an uninsulated home escapes through the walls. To make your house more energy efficient, you should insulate your walls from the inside or outside. Your walls will retain their warmth better if they are built with cavity-wall construction instead of solid walls, so that is another option you have available.
  • Floor Insulation
    Floor insulation is another way to reduce your heating bills further and increase your EPC rating. Whether you live in a house, bungalow or ground-floor flat, you can seal the gaps between floors, skirting boards and walls to reduce draughts. You will need a tube of coloured sealant to give your building a quick fix.
  • Loft insulation
    Whether you live in a ground-floor apartment or have an inconveniently located loft, insulating your roof can help. All you need to do is top up nearly half an inch of insulation. And once the process starts, there is no reason why it should not be easy. Many lofts have no dampness or condensation problems and are easily accessible with minimal effort.
  • Low energy lighting
    Replacing traditional and halogen light bulbs with energy-efficient LEDs will boost your home’s EPC by a wide margin.
  • Replace boilers with new condensing boilers
    A modern and efficient A-rated boiler with thermostatic radiator valves will typically cut costs and increase your EPC rating. Plus, it provides a lot more security for your family’s safety.
  • Replace single-glazed windows with low-E double-glazed windows
    The best ways to save energy in your home are by insulating it and making your windows more energy efficient. Installing double glazing is the most popular option. By choosing A-rated double glazing for a partially single-glazed semi-detached gas-heated property, you can significantly reduce energy bills and feel warmer in your home.
  • Install Renewable Energy Sources
    Solar power could be a good move if you want to make big changes to your home and improve your environmental footprint. These most common renewable energy sources will significantly reduce your energy bills once installed.
