Who needs Commercial EPC?
Commercial EPC is necessary if you’re selling or leasing a commercial property. It’s the responsibility of the landlord or agent to obtain a reliable energy performance certificate before the selling or leasing process. To make it easy for buyers or tenants to get a good idea of the property’s energy efficiency. However, there are some premises that are exempted from the regulation of EPC which are listed below:
- Worship places.
- A structure that is temporary and expected to last less than two years.
- Properties with a floor area of less than 50 square metres are stand-alone.
- A property for which a demolition order has been issued and is due for demolition.
- Low energy demand properties like livestock shelters.
what does a commercial EPC involve?
A Commercial EPC involves multiple inspections and steps. First, our qualified energy assessor will visit your property to conduct a comprehensive survey. They will collect data from several points of view, such as the property’s construction, size, materials, heating, ventilation, and lighting systems.
After analyzing different factors, they will begin collecting data and evidence. Data will include information about heating and cooling systems. They will also check utility bills for comprehensive inspections. After that, they will calculate the EPC rating and evaluate the building’s energy efficiency using specialized software. These calculations will determine the EPC rating, which the assessor will grade between A and G.
The certificate will also come along with recommendations to address potential issues. After completing all steps, the EPC will be issued to the property owner with the typical validity of 10 years. The building owner must make it available for the potential buyer or tenant while letting or selling.
Benefits of a Commercial EPC
Commercial EPC doesn’t only provide you with legal cover, also beneficial for several reasons. After having an accurate commercial EPC, you will get detailed information about the energy efficiency of your property and factors that are increasing your utility bills cost. The report will also come with cost-effective solutions to solve all identified problems.
Demonstrating adherence to energy efficiency and sustainability through a high-rated EPC can also enhance a company’s corporate social commitment profile. It also ensures energy-saving and saves high utility costs. It may also qualify the property for grants and incentives that promote energy efficiency.
Who can do a commercial EPC?
The assessment of a commercial EPC is quite complicated and requires the expertise of a commercial EPC assessor (NDEA). The person must be qualified for the level of the survey and must meet the government-set standards. Moreover, the firm must be approved by the relevant authorities. The property owner should hire someone who can provide an Energy Performance Certificate in accordance with the approved standards.
how are commercial EPCs calculated?
EPC rating is usually calculated by using specialized software. An energy assessor inputs data about a building’s thermal mass, insulation levels, air leakage rates, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, solar panels, and wind turbines. After the software inputs all necessary information, it will start calculating the energy efficiency of the building and grade it on a scale which varies from A to G.
how to improve commercial EPC rating?
Having a Commercial EPC survey is the first step to improving the EPC rating of your commercial building. This allows you to identify potential problems in your property and provides you with the necessary awareness about areas of concern that require immediate attention. The EPC report also includes recommendations to fix the problems identified in the survey. After addressing all those issues, your building EPC rating will significantly improve and help you get the potential value if you’re looking to sell or let your property.
To Book a Commercial EPC
Having a valid EPC before selling or leasing a property is the responsibility of the landlord or agent. You can face legal inconveniences if you lack a valid CEPC. The time frame is shorter than the previous 28-day grace period established before the April 2012 legislation. The new regulations impose stricter criteria regarding EPC law.
