A word from Adrian:
As a specialist in audio environments and having built my own recording studio, I knew quite a lot about the insulation of rooms and buildings. Keeping warmth (or sound) in and eliminating air escape are all part of the process. I was also used to dealing with clients in a professional manner and delivering an end product in a timely manner and to the customer’s satisfaction. With this in mind, it seemed a natural progression to go into domestic energy assessment, assessing dwellings and producing EPCs.
A dwelling must have a valid EPC before it can be put on the market—either for rent or for sale. Each EPC lasts for ten years but there are discussions in parliament to change that to five years. EPC’s are graded A to G, with A being the most energy efficient. Currently properties need to be at least grade E before they can be rented out by landlords, but new legislation planned for 2025 will bring that requirement up to C. All of this underlines the fact that EPCs have never been as important as they are today—and their role in the property industry is only going to increase in time.
EPCs started as an EU directive in 2003. When the UK left the EU the requirement was enshrined in new UK legislation. When your dwelling is assessed, not only does it receive an energy rating, but the certificate will contain specific recommendations to take the dwelling to a higher rating.
Some of the recommendations are large expensive jobs, such as internal or external insulation of walls. Or replacement ‘green’ boilers. Other more budget-friendly measures can include the fitting of thermostatic radiator valves, replacing incandescent lighting bulbs with low-energy alternatives, installing loft insulation, and adding a room thermostat in place of a simple boiler control.
Another little-known measure is to replace conservatory internal-type doors with external types. This means that the conservatory is, in effect not part of the main dwelling, and thus more of an outhouse.
Surprisingly, and contrary to common belief, double-glazed windows do not make much of a contribution to energy saving, while 200mm of loft insulation can make a significant difference.
A domestic energy assessor has to undergo extensive training and practical exercises before gaining the coveted certificate. All DEAs must be registered with a government-authorised accreditation, the largest and most well-known of which is Elmhurst Energy. DEAs must continue advancing their professional development which must be logged and available for presentation at any given time. So you know that your domestic energy assessor is always up to speed with current regulations and practices.
