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 Rating?

EPC Rating is an important factor to consider when shopping for a new home. EPC rating is a review of a property’s energy efficiency and impact on the environment. EPC rating can help you make an informed decision about where to live. Here, we will explore what an EPC rating means for you as a consumer. We will also provide tips on getting the best EPC rating and discuss some of the common benefits of purchasing an energy-efficient home.

What Is An EPC Rating?

An EPC rating is a system for rating buildings’ energy efficiency and environmental performance in terms of carbon dioxide emission, energy and water use. Accredited assessors assign the ratings to a particular type of building, such as residential or commercial.

Assessors will give your building an energy-efficiency rating between A and G. A is the highest level for buildings with the best energy efficiency and least carbon dioxide emission impact. This rating reduces until it gets to the least efficiency-G. In most cases, the average EPC rating for a home in the UK is D. 

The ratings are expressed in terms of kWh/m²/year and depend on the following: 

  • The energy used per m². 
  • The amount of carbon dioxide emissions (given in tonnes per year). 

How To Get An EPC Rating

As mentioned, EPC ratings are expressed in kWh/m2/year and assigned by qualified and accredited assessors. The ratings are based on how much energy a building uses and how much money it costs to use that energy compared to other structures of the same size in the same area. 

How To Calculate An EPC Rating

There are many ways to calculate an EPC rating for a building, but the single-family residential (SFR) rating is the most common. This article will explain how an EPC rating works and its use.

An EPC rating is determined by calculating the energy the building uses over its lifetime and dividing that number by the energy required to build the structure. 

A qualified and accredited energy assessor visits the property to give it an EPC rating by examining crucial items such as walls, floors, insulation, and so on throughout the property to gauge the energy performance of your property. They input their observations into a program that calculates your home’s efficiency. The software tells you how much potential your home has to lower its environmental impact.

Benefits Of Getting An EPC Rating

EPC ratings can help someone make an informed decision about whether or not to buy a building. This rating can help property owners make informed decisions about upgrades or retrofits they may want to consider. They can also help them compare buildings against each other to see which ones are more energy-efficient.

Some benefits of getting an EPC rating include the following:

  • Knowing how much energy and water a building uses.
  • Being able to compare different buildings and choose the one that is most environmentally friendly.
  • It helps promote the sale of your property.

A good EPC rating will vary depending on your circumstances. For example, for buy- to let landlords, you are required to make sure your property has a rating of at least E or above before taking on any new tenants or renewing existing contracts. If you are unsure of your property’s rating, the EPC register and checker can help. 

The EPC register, a government database, can be used to search for an energy performance certificate by postcode. You can use this to look up your certificate and find the certificate for properties that interest you.
