All 5 domestic energy assessments arranged during the course

Only accredited and suitably qualified DEAs (and existing Home Inspectors) will be allowed to carry out the Energy Assessment of the 1 million plus homes which come to the market each year all rental properties with a new tenancy in England and Wales will be required to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

DEAs will collect data on the dimensions, construction, heating and hot water provision of the property, and enter the information into an approved software program.
This, in turn, will produce the EPC. The first part of the certificate is a benchmarked measure of the home's energy performance on a scale A to G, where A is very efficient and G is at the other end of the spectrum.

The second part of the EPC is cost effective recommendations for improving the energy performance of the home, information on renewable energy and recommendations on energy efficient behavior.

What is an EPC?

The Energy Performance Certificate will look broadly similar to a certificate on a refrigerator.
Its purpose is to record, in a clear unambiguous format, how energy efficient the home is as a building. Using colour charts, the EPC records the current rating and compares this with the rating at which the owner or tenant should aim.
