What is an Energy Performance Certificate?
An EPC is a survey completed by a qualified assessor who will visit your home and examine the energy measures currently installed, such as your heating system, loft insulation, double glazing etc. This information is inputted into a software application which then calculates and grades the efficiency of your home. A report is produced which will show the current energy rating graded on an A to G scale, A being most efficient and G being least.
What is a Green Deal Assessment?
A Green Deal Assessment is conducted on your home should you wish to consider improving your home’s energy rating through the Green Deal.
It consists of two main parts, an EPC and an Occupancy Assessment.
The Occupancy Assessment is an assessment on your personal energy consumption and will provide accurate information on the potential savings you can make through installing certain recommended measures. A Simply RES Green Deal Assessor will spend around two hours taking a thorough look at both the energy efficiency of your home and how you use energy. A Green Deal Advice Report will then be produced.
