Domestic EPC  What is it?

Display Energy Certificates (DECs) show the actual energy usage of a building, the Operational Rating, and help the public see the energy efficiency of a building.

This is based on the energy consumption of the building as recorded by gas, electricity and other service meters.

The DEC should be clearly displayed at all times and clearly visible to the public, for example, in the reception area or entrance to the building.

A DEC is always accompanied by an Advisory Report that lists cost effective measures to improve the energy rating of the building.

What are the benefits to me as a landlord/owner?

The energy rating can help rent/market your property. By indicating to a prospective buyer or tenant the energy efficiency your property currently holds.
It should also provide information that may help to reduce the running cost of the property.

Who needs one?

Display Energy Certificates are only required for buildings with a total useful floor area over 1,000m2 that are occupied by a public authority and institution providing a public service to a large number of persons and therefore visited by those persons.


Who is responsible for providing the report?

The owner operator of the building and, within the organisation, the facilities manager or maintenance manager

What are the dates to comply with legislation?

The requirement for Display Energy Certificates came into effect on 1 October 2008.


How long is a certificate valid for?

They are valid for one year. The accompanying Advisory Report is valid for seven years.

Commercial EPC  What is it?

From 1 October 2008 when a building is sold, built or rented an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is required and is produced by accredited energy assessors. A Commercial EPC is also known as a Non- Domestic Energy performance certificate.

The certificate provides energy efficiency ratings between grades A-G and recommendations for improvement.

The ratings - similar to those found on products such as fridges - are standard so the energy efficiency of one building can easily be compared with another building of a similar type.

The European Commission's Directive on The Energy Performance of Buildings (EPBD) aims to promote improved energy efficiency through energy performance certificates. All buildings will be required to have an Energy Performance Certificate EPC before they can be marketed for sale or rent.

InterSept engineers will carry out a thorough inspection and provide you with an accurate energy rating. We can arrange a time that will cause minimal disruption.
