A really good service from Antony and Jane at Coventry Property Surveys. The survey booking was handled quickly. Antony arrived on time, was very efficient, happy to give me advice, and supplied the completed EP certificate timely. I would definitely recommend and will certainly use Antony’s service again.

Anthony and his team are very efficient. We use their company often for floor plans, HMO’s. They are always punctual, honest, best serving and accommodating to dates and times. Turn around is also great, within 24 hours! No waiting ages for a document you desperately need. Thanks so much for making it easier for us.

Energy Performance Certificates FAQ

What is an energy assessment?

An accredited Energy Assessor visits the property to collect only the data required for assessing energy features, and generates an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) using government-approved software. The assessment is based on the construction and type of dwelling and relevant fittings (heating systems, insulation or double glazing, for example). It is not a structural or building survey, condition report or property valuation.

The costs shown on the EPC are higher than my actual energy bills for the year, why is this?

EPCs use standardised assumptions so as to make properties directly comparable while still reflecting the features of individual properties. The EPC costs are based on a number of assumptions: a standardised heating pattern, number of occupants, hot water usage, etc. These factors vary appreciably between different households even if living in similar properties.

Why are the potential heating costs greater than the current heating costs when the EPC recommends low energy lighting is installed?

This occurs when low energy lights are recommended and there is no recommendation for improvements to the heating system (usually because an efficient system is already installed). Standard light bulbs generate more heat than low energy light bulbs; by replacing standard bulbs with low energy bulbs the heat generated by the lighting is reduced and the heating system has to make up the difference. The reduction in the lighting cost is appreciably greater than the increase in the heating cost, so there is a net reduction in energy costs for the property.

My recent EPC makes the recommendation of changing my current boiler to a new condensing boiler, but I have only recently had my boiler changed – why is this?

The EPC provides an indication of the potential energy performance of the property and in this case has identified that the current boiler is not the most efficient boiler available. The recommendation to improve the boiler to a more energy efficient boiler is made purely on the energy efficiency rating of the boiler and is not a reflection of the age or condition of the currently installed boiler. This recommendation identifies that there are more efficient boilers available and that a homeowner should consider this when they next have to replace the boiler.
