What is an EPC?

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a legal requirement for any home being sold, rented or for certain subsidised renewable energy schemes. It can only be produced by a qualified and accredited Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA).

An EPC gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and is valid for 10 years. Making the recommended changes could make your property more attractive to a potential buyer or tenant by making it more energy efficient, hence lowering running costs.

How we conduct our performance assessment

In order for us to provide the most accurate energy rating for your property please make sure you prepare for our visit.

Access to loft space

We will need access on the day to your loft space to check insulation levels. If you have any documentation to show what insulation was installed, that will help.

Cavity Insulation

If you have cavity wall insulation or have had solar panels installed, let us see the paperwork.

Gas & Electric Meters

We need access to your gas and electric meters.


If you have had any extensions built, have the paperwork to hand so we can see when the work was done.

Double Glazing

If you have double glazing, let us see a copy of any FENSA registration.


We need to see your boiler and any hot water cylinder.

On the day of the assessment

The Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA) will need to visit the property to carry out the assessment and produce the EPC. Typically, the survey takes less than an hour depending on the property size and complexity. The DEA will collect relevant data about the property, taking measurements and photographs for data verification and audit purposes. Access is required to all rooms in the property and loft space if applicable, heating and hot water systems and their controls will also need to be seen. This data is then run through standard assessment software and the EPC is created and then lodged onto the Government’s database. We will then provide you with a copy for your records.

At Energy Shed we are fully qualified, accredited, DBS checked and insured. If you have pets, please make sure they are safely secured while we carry out our work.

EPC Developments

Rented Property Bill

Currently, any property in England, Scotland or Wales that is either being built, marketed for sale or let as an entire property requires an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). Since the 1st of October 2008, landlords must have a valid EPC rated at “E” or above to provide to prospective tenants. EPCs are valid for ten years. After this time, landlords are only required to get a new EPC if they are re-letting to a new tenant or the previous EPC has expired.

Compulsory Energy Performance

The Government’s proposal in the Rented Property Bill is that rental properties meet a compulsory energy performance certificate rating of band “C” on new tenancies by December 2025, and on all rented properties by December 2028. Consequently, these proposals must be taken seriously by all landlords in relation to property energy efficiency and EPCs.

Expert service from start to receiving the EPC. Energy Shed were helpful from the booking to the finished report. The rate for the service was very competitive. I would recommend them to anyone needing this service and will definitely use them in the future.
