Our survey will cover...
How can you improve your EPC?
A home with a good EPC rating will require less energy to heat and light, meaning it will be cheaper to run. This is beneficial to the occupants, and can make the property more appealing to potential buyers or new tenants.
The bullet points below list some things you can do before our visit to improve the outcome of your EPC assessment...
Change all lighting to low energy bulbs - This is a cheap and effective way to improve your EPC rating.
Find insulation installation documentation - If you've had insulation added, but it has now been covered with render or boarded up, your EPC assessor will need to see evidence in order to include it in the RdSAP software. If evidence is not available, the assessor must select "unknown" or "as built" which can reduce the EPC score.
Find window installation documentation - Often windows will have a date stamp, between the panes, indicating when they were manufactured. However, if your windows do not have this, and they were manufactured after 2002, you will need to provide documentation so that we can evidence this in our survey.
