Energy Performance Certificates and EPC reports London
The Energy Performance Certificates are special documents, providing a rating scheme which compares your home's energy efficiency with the recommendable rates. It registers the current carbon dioxide emissions and the current energy efficiency of your property.
In order to measure the energy efficiency of your home, a special EPC report should be prepared either by certified inventory clerks or by a quality inventory company. Those home inventory reports are essential for every property, because a high energy efficiency rating makes it more attractive for rent or sale. Furthermore, these reports allow property owners to apply for special grants, in order to improve the energy efficiency index of their properties.
Once the EPC report is done, it will include information about the current energy efficiency and carbon emissions of your home, as well as charts for all the tested appliances. In addition, you will receive a couple of suggestions on how to improve your property's energy efficiency and carbon emissions, and what will be the impact of this rating on your home. Another special section in the EPC report will contain information about the possible savings per year, which can be achieved once all the recommendations are fulfilled.
Thus EPC reports should be provided when a property is rented out or for sale. It's better to refer to a certified London inventory clerk or an inventory company that can prepare such for you. Also, note that once issued, the Energy Performance Certificate is valid for 10 years, which could prevent a lot of issues, if you are planing to rent your property for a long term.
