Need to know where to start when it comes to making your home more energy efficient?
At Energy efficient you, we’re here to help you improve your energy efficiency. As certified energy assessors we are able to to offer Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) starting from just £60.
An energy performance certificate (EPC) is a document that provides information about the energy efficiency of a building. It is typically used for residential or commercial properties and is intended to help property owners, tenants, and buyers understand the energy performance and potential energy costs of a building.
The energy efficiency rating is on a scale from A to G, with A being the most efficient and G being the least efficient.
Energy rating certificates are required by law when selling, renting, or constructing a property. They help to promote energy efficiency and provide valuable information to potential buyers or tenants, allowing them to make more informed decisions regarding energy costs and environmental impact.
To get an energy performance certificate, you can reach out to us at Energy Efficient You. We are certified energy assessors that are accredited to carry out EPC assessments across the UK.
This is because the energy rating of your property needs to be either E, F, or G to qualify for a heating grant.

An Energy performance certificate is valid for 10 years.
It is highly recommended that you apply for an EPC assessment whenever there have been changes to your building that may have an impact on energy efficiency.
Changes that can have an impact on the energy efficiency of your building are:
During an Energy Performance Certificate assessment, one of our qualified energy assessors will visit your building to evaluate its energy performance and generate the EPC.
Here is the process of what happens during an energy performance certificate assessment.
Data Collection: Our assessor will collect information about the building, this can include its dimensions, construction materials, heating and cooling systems, insulation levels, lighting, and renewable energy sources. We also gather data on occupancy patterns, such as the number of rooms and people living or working in the building.
Visual Inspection: We will conduct a visual inspection of the building’s key components, such as the walls, windows, doors, roof, and heating/cooling equipment. The condition and quality of insulation and glazing will be assessed, as well as any other relevant features.
Measurements and Recordings: Our assessor will then take measurements of the building’s dimensions, such as floor areas, ceiling heights, and window sizes. We will also record details of heating/cooling systems, lighting types, and renewable energy installations.
Questionnaire: Our assessor will ask the building owner or occupant a series of questions related to energy usage, such as heating habits, occupancy patterns, and any specific energy-saving measures in place.
Data Analysis: The collected data, measurements, and observations are entered into specialised software approved for EPC assessments. The software calculates the building’s energy efficiency rating based on the provided information and generates the EPC.
EPC Report: Our energy assessor generates an EPC report, which includes information about the building’s current energy performance, potential energy-saving measures, and recommendations for improving energy efficiency. The report also provides an energy efficiency rating on a scale from A to G, with A being the most efficient.
EPC stands for Energy Performance Certificate. An energy performance certificate is a document that provides information on the energy efficiency of the building it is registered to.
Energy Performance Certificates are calculated using standardised methods based on the building’s characteristics and energy performance indicators.
Yes, an EPC is required by law to sell a house. The certificate needs to be ordered before the property is marketed for sale so it is available for buyers to see.
