Energy Performance Certificates

DW Hampshire Ltd are accredited with Stroma and Elmhurst Energy to assess existing domestic properties and produce Energy Performance Certificates. We are able to produce EPC's at competitive prices for landlords and letting agents in Southampton, Winchester, Eastleigh, Fareham, Gosport, Portsmouth and the surrounding areas.

What is an EPC? An EPC looks similar to the energy performance labels provided on household electrical appliances. Energy Performance Certificates are used to give an indication of how energy efficient a building is. An EPC will grade a property from A to G where A is the most energy efficient rating and G is the least energy efficient. The energy efficiency rating of a property will vary according to many factors such as age, heating, lighting, ventilation, building fabric and insulation. An EPC will give some recommendations on energy performance improvements which can be made to a property and will also give an indication of the cost and savings which can be made in fuel bills. When is an EPC required? From 2008 an EPC is required for all domestic properties being sold or rented to tenants. An EPC is not required for the following: Listed buildings which are listed by English Heritage Temporary buildings with a planned usage time of two years or less Residential buildings which are intended to be used less than four months of the year Standalone buildings with a floor area less than fifty metres square When renting out individual rooms in a H.M.O property
Property Assessment To produce an accurate energy performance certificate for your property it is essential that we have the most accurate information possible. We will need to know the age of the property and any extensions. If there have been any energy improvements to the property such as double glazing, solar panels, cavity wall insulation or other improvements it would be appreciated if we can see the documentation for this. We will need to draw a floor plan of the property, carry out a survey and take some measurements which will mean it will be necessary to have access to all rooms of the property. We will need to see items such as the electricity meter, boiler, hot water storage tank, heating controls, radiators and lights so that we can take accurate details. If a loft is present with an access hatch we will need to look in the roof space to see if there is insulation and measure the depth of the insulation if present. We will provide our own ladder so there is no need to worry about providing one for us. Finally we will need to take a photographs of the exterior elevations of the property and some interior photos as evidence that we have performed the survey correctly. When we visit your property we will either remove our shoes or wear shoe covers so that we do not tread dirt into your property. Once we have completed the property survey, clients should have access to their EPC within 24 hours. For more details and prices please visit our EPC website at:
