Assessments and Energy Performance Ratings

Energy Performance Certificates

An Energy Performance Certificate is required for properties when they are built, sold or let. It provides details of the energy performance of a property – information about a property’s energy use and typical energy costs. It also includes recommendations about how to reduce energy use and save money. 

If you own your home, having an energy performance survey done could help you to identify ways to save money on your energy bills. You will need an Energy Performance Certificate if you want to apply to certain government funding schemes, such as the Renewable Heat Incentive

Plumb-Line can arrange for an accredited assessor to complete the Energy Performance Survey, producing an Energy Performance Certificate. This states how energy efficient a building is and gives it a rating from A (very efficient) to G (inefficient).  The EPC also gives an indication of heating and lighting costs and carbon dioxide emissions. It states how you can make changes to improve the energy performance rating. Once produced, Energy Performance Certificates are valid for 10 years.
