What is A Domestic Energy Survey/EPC?
A Domestic Energy Survey or EPC as it is otherwise known, sounds very technical, but it is actually incredibly simple. EPC stands for Energy Performance Certificate. In order for Tempo to install any grant funded (or sometimes non grant funded) measures in your home we need to obtain an up to date EPC, which can be carried out by our qualified surveyors.
When you apply via our website or by phone, a surveyor will come to assess your property, take the required measurements in your home and enter the information into a software in order produce a certificate containing your energy costs and energy usage. An energy rating will be displayed on the EPC, containing an energy performance score between A (the most energy efficient) to G (The least energy efficient).
The EPC will also give recommendations of what measure would benefit your property in order to save you as much energy and money as possible. With your permission, we can then go ahead and install the measures required providing the correct measures are recommended.
What Does An EPC Involve? In order to produce an energy performance certificate, a surveyor will have to thoroughly assess your the energy usage in your property. For this the surveyors will most likely need good access to every room in your home. The surveyor will also be required to take some pictures (as evidence) and measurements in your property. The assessment in total should take no longer than 45 minutes. There are a few must do's and must haves when it comes to EPC's though:
Choose a time that suits you best and a member of our team can come round and carry out and assessment.
We will carry out a detailed assessment of your home and talk you through the next stages to begin saving energy and money in your home.
The installation can be carried out as soon as we get the go ahead from yourselves and you can start saving!
