Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) are official documents that illustrates the energy efficiency of domestic and commercial properties. These are issued by qualified accredited energy assessors after an energy assessment of the building and include information on the fabric of the building, lighting, heating, cooling and ventilation systems. The EPC is a legal document that every property in UK is required to have and display. It contains a certificate reference number, the address of the property, an energy rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient), technical information regarding the property and benchmarks against which the energy efficiency could be measured and improved.
An EPC is required if your are selling or leasing a property, when you are applying for grants, loans or Green Deal Finance or when you want to reduce your energy costs. The benefits of obtaining a professional EPC are numerous, from certifying the energy efficiency of a property to providing access to government financial support. However, whether you are a commercial or domestic property owner, getting a professional EPC from an accredited energy assessor like Nexus Energy Solutions has even more benefits.
