Energy Performance Certificates (EPC)

All new dwellings are required to achieve an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), ask which is a certificate that represents the cost and environmental impact from the regulated energy consumption. The EPC provides an illustration using an A to G energy rating.

New dwellings have their EPC produced from the having Part L SAP Calculations. You can find our service here.

New non-residential buildings & commercial premises have their EPC produced from a Part L SBEM Calculation.

Understanding EPCs

Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) give information about a home’s energy efficiency and CO2 emissions, and includes a rating which grades them from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. Because all homes are measured using the same calculations, comparisons between different properties can easily be made.

EPC certification

To achieve final certification, we start by submitting each dwelling’s SAP Design-Final outputs (SAP worksheet, Building Regulations checklist and Predicted Energy Assessment report) for Building Regulations approval. Once the dwellings have been completed on site and the air pressure testing carried out, we update the SAP ratings and produce an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) for each dwelling, as well as the As-Built SAP worksheets and Building Regulations checklist. We then issue these final certificates directly to you.
