It couldn't be simpler
Canterbury Domestic Energy Assessors are experienced at carrying out energy assessments having been doing them since there introduction 12 years ago. A simple call or email to arrange an appointment within a few days. The assessment takes about an hour and the certificate is uploaded to the national register the same day with a copy emailed to you. If you also require a floor plan it’s cheaper to have them done at the same time. Payment can be made by cash, cheque or card, if more convenient by bank transfer on receipt of invoice.
what does it involve?
The survey takes around an hour to gather the date needed to produce the epc report. A basic floor plan is drawn to work out the floor area. Photos are taken of the different elements to verify and have been identified for Audit purposes.
- The loft inspected (if present)
- Heating systems
- Hot water system
- Wall thickness measured
- Window type identified
- Utility Meters checked
- Renewable technologies
Paperwork that may be required
It would be useful to have available certificates/guarantees for double glazing (fensa certificate) cavity or loft insulation. Please be aware that the survey is non invasive and if any element can’t be seen it’s assumed it’s “as built” which means the date the building was constructed so if you’ve had loft insulation but it’s can’t be seen because the loft is boarded either a board has to be removed prior to inspection or a certificate supplied to show insulation is present.
Converted properties and Roof Rooms.
If your property is a conversion (ie a pub, hospital or large house turned into flats) The Certificate of Completion is required which will show the property was converted in compliance to the building regulations of the time. If this isn’t available the original date of the building is used in conjunction with visible evidence (if any) for various elements such as floor or wall insulation.
