What we offer

Covering the UK, Focus 360 Energy has 10 years’ experience offering energy performance certificates (EPC’s).

We offer both residential and commercial EPC certificates to a vast number of clients including estate agents, solicitors, property landlords, facility managers and the general public.

We can issue your EPC Certificate on the same day as your survey.

All residential buildings that are available to buy or rent must have an EPC Certificate.

It is the landlord’s or seller’s responsibility to obtain an EPC Certificate from an approved Domestic Energy Assessor. The energy assessor will need to access all rooms as well as the loft. They are also required to inspect heating systems and controls, take measurements and take photographs of all key data included in the survey.

Landlords in England and Wales are required by law to get an EPC rating of band E or above to let their properties to new tenancies or renewals.

What is a Residential EPC?

A Residential Energy Performance Certificate records the energy efficiency of buildings and displays the rating on a graph from A-G.

The best result achievable is an A banding, with the lowest being G. The rating graph is similar to the labels you see attached to new appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines.

Throughout the UK Energy Performance Certificates are produced using standard methods and energy assumptions which allows buildings to be compared with another fairly. By doing this it allows owners, prospective buyers or tenants to view the projected energy consumption and carbon ratings over a yearly basis, so they can consider the overall energy efficiency and fuel costs as part of their investment or living expenses.

All Energy Performance Certificates are accompanied with a recommendations report which outlines cost-effective measures that can be put in place to improve the overall energy efficiency rating of a given property. A typical recommendation could be to upgrade a building’s heating system, increase insulation levels in a loft space or to upgrade single glazed areas to double glazing.

The Energy Performance Certificate is important as more than 50% of the UK’s energy consumption and carbon emissions are produced by the way that we light, heat and generally use buildings. Relatively small changes such as installing low energy or LED lighting in all outlets of a building can have a profound effect on energy consumption.

  • A (92 plus)
  • B (81-91)
  • C (69-80)
  • D (55-68)
  • E (39-54)
  • F (21-38)
  • G (1-20)

The lower your score, the higher your efficiency!

Residential EPC FAQs

When is an Energy performance certificate required?

Your property’s EPC needs to be available to potential buyers as soon as you start to market your property for sale or rent. EPC Certificates became a regulatory requirement in April 2008.  You must get an approved Domestic Energy assessor to produce the EPC.

Residential EPC Certificates are a requirement on all domestic properties, that are either being sold, built, or rented, and must be provided to a prospective buyer or tenant free of charge.

Are there any cases whereby my building may be exempt?

The answer is yes! The following situations deem your property exempt.

  • Some listed buildings
  • Building due for demolition resulting in site due for redevelopment
  • Building to be sold or rented out with vacant possession
  • Places of worship
  • Industrial sites, workshops and non-residential agricultural buildings that have a low energy demand.
  • Stand-alone commercial buildings with a total useful floor space of less than 50m².

What are the penalties for not having an EPC?

As from the 1st April 2018, there will be a requirement for any properties rented out in the private rented sector to normally have a minimum energy performance rating of E on an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). The regulations will come into force for new lets and renewals of tenancies with effect from 1st April 2018 and for all existing tenancies on 1st April 2020. It will be unlawful to rent a property which breaches the requirement for a minimum E rating unless there is an applicable exemption. A civil penalty of up to £4,000 will be imposed for breaches.

When do I pay for my survey?

You do not pay anything until the survey is has been fully carried out and that you are happy with the service. Invoices will be issued at this point.

What is your Energy Performance Certificate process?

  1. Upon arrival to the property, the energy assessor will introduce themselves, explain the process and carry out a health & safety risk assessment for safety purposes.
  2. The assessor will require access to all of the rooms in the property, including (where applicable) loft hatch, room in the roof, extensions, conservatory, electric and gas metres.
  3. The assessor will draw a sketch plan of the overall floor area of the property. Once this is done they will work through each room taking precise measurements and capturing all relevant data (Property age, construction materials, Wall thicknesses, heating systems & controls, hot water cylinder details, water cylinder insulation, Secondary heating systems (if applicable), Floor construction, glazing type and low energy lighting.

Please note that we respect your home at all times and will ensure that it will be left as it was before we conducted our survey.
