Commercial EPC For Energy Assessment
EPCs were introduced as part of Europe's commitment to the Kyoto Agreement in order to help improve
the energy efficiency of commercial and residential buildings. It is one part of a wide range of measures
across Europe to address the issue of climate change and reduce the dependence on fossil fuels. Letting
agents and tenants intend to occupy a residential property or commercial premises must obtain a
certificate within seven days of the marketing commencement.
Domestic or residential EPC for house sale, letting or renting are specifically designed to address the
needs of homeowners who are selling, renting or letting out their property. It contains summary
information on the construction elements, the amount of insulation and the types of heating for
determining the energy estimate and cost.
Commercial EPC addresses the requirements of the multitude of different commercial premises, from
shops, offices, hotels, pubs, restaurants and industrial units. The certificate produces an energy rating as
well as recommendations to improve the energy efficiency. Not all buildings require EPC. Places of
worship, temporary buildings, buildings due for demolition, industrial workshops; and non-residential
agricultural buildings are exempted from energy assessment.
Domestic Energy Assessors or DEAs would assess a property by examining key items such as loft
insulation, hot water tanks, radiators, windows used with double glazing among others. Observation are
then fed in a software program that calculates and outputs energy efficiency. The program gives the
rating of energy efficiency for domestic or commercial premises in the range from A to G and suggests
potential improvements to minimize the energy usage and bring down the cost. Along with the
consumption rating, DEAs also generate report suggesting recommended changes to the property that
would enhance its energy performance rating.
Surrey based energy assessment service providers are committed to work towards conserving energy and
reducing carbon emissions. Commercial epc surrey, employs different formulas and computerized
calculative methods to accurately measure energy performance of premises and suggest improvements.
An EPC reflects the energy performance and thereby helps dwellers to know which appliances and things
consume more energy and what suitable measures to be undertaken for efficient energy consumption.
Renewable energy sources are also sought to fulfill country's energy requirements. Renewable energy
suppliants such as fixing of solar heating panels, application of hydro power, geothermal and wind power
are considered to reduce harmful carbon emissions to support green environment.
