Does your place have an EPC?

As a species, humans have survived for several millenniums due to our adaptive nature. However, this survival has also lead to some downsides for our environment due to direct and indirect effects of human activity. Take the example of carbon emissions and you will realize how much we have harmed our planet and continue to do so. Several measures have been taken to keep these activities in check and strict measures are being enforced today in various parts of the world. When it comes to our daily lives, it is needless to say that we need to keep our house’s energy efficiency in check at all times. If you are confused about how this can be done then there is no need to break a sweat as Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) serves this exact purpose.

Today it is compulsory for any owner to get this performance certificate done if he/she plans to sell or rent the place to anyone else. Without a valid EPC, it would not be possible to get into a deal with tenants or buyers. This reflects the high importance that one faces related to necessarily having evaluated the energy friendliness and efficiency of your place at all costs. Moreover, getting this thorough analysis done also gives you a good idea about where your house or building stands when it comes to energy efficiency and what can be done about the same. Needless to say, the carbon emissions emanating from your home will have a great influence on what EPC certificate grade you get for your place. These grades on your EPC range from grade A to grade G with ‘A’ being the most energy efficient and ‘G’ being the least energy efficient. So depending upon your grade, you will be able to get a better idea of where your house stands and how far you can improve it.

If you do not have any plans to get an EPC certificate for your house then it is strongly suggested that you hire a reputed agency and get it done as early as possible. This will help you avoid further trouble in the future and you can take necessary measures to save up on energy related expenses. Look for a company that offers highest level of professional service as it will be very much worth the effort. In little time, your house will have its Energy Performance Certificate and you will have a better view of any services, or compliance issues that you may be facing for your property.
