Home Energy Advice

Whether buying or renting a property it must have an EPC – Energy Performance Certificates. This is a report on the energy performance of the property and the calculations that generate it are carried our using the SAP – Standard Assessment Procedure, in a similar way that Be Energy Smart will carry out your energy assessment using the information you enter online.

What is a DEA?

A Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA) produces Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) for existing dwellings.
An EPC is a measure of the property’s energy efficiency, and includes recommendations for improvements. The DEA undertakes a short, non-invasive inspection of the property before producing the EPC using dedicated software.

Why is an EPC needed?
In the UK you are required by law to produce an EPC every time a home is marketed for sale or rent. This is a law that stems from the EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive. It says that EPCs can only be produced by “suitably qualified and/or accredited experts”.

For marketed sales, the EPC was included in the Home Information Pack (HIP). With the suspension of HIPs, the EPC is still required and is now a standalone document. For rentals or Right to Buy sales, the EPC is made available by the landlord or estate agent. An estimated 1.5 million EPCs are needed every year.

In addition to these legal requirements, home owners who are looking to measure and increase the energy efficiency of their homes may choose to commission an EPC.
