To produce an EPC report for your property, an assessment will need to be carried out. The survey would take on average 45 minutes. This would involve taking notes relating to the construction and energy related facets of the property. Where possible, we will also view any loft spaces as well as creating a brief floor plan of the property. Click here to learn more about whats involved.
Digital photographs will be taken of specific parts of the property which relate to energy efficiency, this is for audit purposes Please note that this is purely a ’visual’ assessment and no energy related items, such as the heating system or lighting, are tested.
The data collected is then input into the government approved software back at our office and your EPC is created, and lodged on the Landmark Registry system, via an accreditation body, within 24 hours of the property assessment.
