What Are Energy Performance Certificates?

Since every property in the UK, since the 1st of October 2008, it has been a legal requirement for an energy performance survey to be carried out, producing an energy performance certificate. This is not just for properties in Dorset but for properties across the UK. The energy performance certificate must be created by the requirements set out in the European Union Directive 2002/91/EC.

Our team, based in Dorset, will carry out energy-efficient testing and provide energy performance certificates with our results; this will include an energy efficiency rating similar to domestic appliances.

How the energy efficiency is monitored is through a scale that goes from A to G, it will also give you the energy rating that the property could be if you used low energy options in the home. Giving you some idea on the cost energy bills will be.

What Will The Energy Efficiency Assessor Do?

Here at Dolphin Media in Dorset, we offer an efficient service regarding the EPC survey; one of our assessors will come to the property and determine the construction of the buildings, look at any extensions and work through the home's energy efficiency and thermal efficiency.

We can determine your EPC rating by looking at the heating systems, cavity wall insulation and other aspects. The measurements are also taken from outside the home; once we have collected all the information we need, we will file the information and produce a certificate for you within 48 hours.

How Long Does An Energy Efficiency Rating Survey Take?

When you choose Dolphin Media to come to your home and carry out the SAP calculations, you are choosing the most efficient team in the area; we try and carry out the EPC survey to the highest standard without disrupting your day for too long.

It depends on the size of your home; however, a standard property of 3 bedrooms takes around 45 minutes to one hour, along with the administration time off-site to compile the report.

When Do You Need An EPC Survey & Certificate In Dorset?

When selling your property or even having a rental property, you will need an EPC survey and certificate to allow potential buyers or tenants access to the legal paperwork they need.

Energy performance certificates (EPCs) are required when a property is;

  • Built
  • Rented
  • Sold

This allows any parties involved to look at the energy use and energy costs associated with a specific property in Dorset. Most of the similar buildings will have the same rating as an average. The colour graph you will receive as part of the report will give you a visualisation of the energy rating of your property.

Once you have the EPC report, it will be valid for ten years.
