An EPC is an indication of how much energy a property uses and how much it costs per annum. It also gives an indication or 'recommendation' of how to improve your energy performance.
How is an EPC inspection completed?
To complete an EPC a domestic energy assessor (DEA) is required to attend the property. The DEA is required to inspect the property in person, this can not be completed as a desk top exercise.
When on site a DEA will need to complete the following:
Measure the area for each floor
Check all openings
Check all walls
Check the roof (and insulation by accessing the loft if necessary)
Check the heating system (eg. boiler)
Inspect the heat emitters (eg. radiators)
Inspect conservatories if applicable
Check all heating controls
Check hot water cylinder (if applicable)
Inspect gas and electric meters
Inspect all lights
The Energy assessor will also need to take pictures of all of the above. If you have completed any work (for example floor insulation) the DEA will need evidence of this as they will not be able to see this usually.
