Found Nirav on MyConstructor and as the reviews were positive and his pricing super-competitive, I chose him to carry out an EPC and floor plan for my newly refurbished flat that I was renting. Nirav contacted me immediately, explained the process, met me at the property on time and was tidy, friendly, very polite and quick! I explained to him that I was in a hurry and within 36 hours I had both the EPC and floor plan (Jpeg and PDF). That is very impressive! I would not hesitate in recommending.

What Is An EPC Certificate?

EPC as an acronym which means different things in different fields. In the UK, EPC means Energy Performance Certificate. Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a mandatory building standard in the United Kingdom. It is also known as an Energy Rating Certificate (ERC). 

EPC is a certification that shows how energy efficient a building is. It is required by the government to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. An EPC can help you (a potential tenant or buyer) save money on your energy bills and improve the energy efficiency of your building. It can also help protect the environment. 

Find out more about EPCs and how they can help you here.

If you’re not familiar with the term EPC you may wonder what is an EPC Certificate.

An EPC is a certificate that shows how energy efficient a property/building is. An EPC is a rating scheme which summarizes the energy efficiency of a property. The building is given a rating from A to G. When a building is rated A it means the building is energy efficient while a rating of G means the building is not energy efficient.

What Does Energy Efficiency Rating Mean?

The Energy Efficiency Rating of a building is determined by the Energy Efficiency Rating of the appliances used in the building. The energy efficiency rating of an appliance shows the amount of electricity an appliance needs to perform as compared to other models of the same capacity. An appliance that uses less electricity is more efficient and increases the EPC rating of a property.


How To Get An EPC Certificate?

Now that we have covered what is an EPC certificate, the next important thing is how to find one.

There are two types of EPCs: 

Standard and Gold. The Standard EPC is valid for five years, while the Gold EPC is valid for 10 years. Businesses can get both types of EPCs, but households only can get the Gold EPC.

To get an EPC, businesses must first enroll in the program and then submit an application. The application process includes submitting information about the building, such as its size and type, as well as data about how much energy it uses and how it can be improved.

After applying, businesses will receive a confirmation letter from the government specifying when their EPC testing will take place. Testing will involve visiting the building and measuring its energy efficiency using different methods. Once testing is complete, businesses will receive their EPC certificate.

In order to get a good EPC certificate, a building must meet specific targets relating to energy performance, renewable energy use and CO2 emissions.

Benefits Of Having An EPC Certificate

A good EPC certificate is important because it confirms that a building meets the minimum energy efficiency requirements set by the government. 

There are many benefits to having an EPC Certificate, including:

  • Improved energy efficiency:
  • Your property will use less energy, which can save you money in the long run.

  •  Reduced environmental impact:
  • Using less energy can have a positive environmental impact, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and contributing to climate change mitigation.

  • Increased value:
  • An EPC Certificate may improve the marketability of your property and help you achieve a higher selling price.

The benefits of having an EPC certificate are clear: not only will your property save on its energy bills, but it could also be eligible for financial incentives such as grants or tax breaks.
