Fulfilling the properties energy saving potential could render significant beneficial monetary results in the future

In these worrying financial times, every effort must be made to be frugal and intelligent with capital. As well as cutting out unnecessary luxuries such as holiday and clothing, the cost of life’s necessities can be cut without the services being compromised.
One such technique is having new and old property undergo a thorough energy performance check to obtain an Energy Performance Certificate. The EPC highlights where in a property, whether it be personal or business, energy is being wasted, lost and not utilised to its maximum.
A team of Building Surveyors, Home Inspectors, Domestic and Commercial Energy Assessors carry out numerous condition surveys to determine the energy performance of a property. This specialist team will discover where energy is being wasted and the intensity of the waste.
The certificate simply outlines the waste in a clear to understand manner. The over performance is ranked from A-G with A being the highest grade available and the most desirable. The higher the grade, the more efficiently the energy is used and subsequently the energy bills will be cheaper due to the retention of energy within the property. This is particularly important with the cold winter months approaching.
Also demonstrated on the certificate is the potential grade that can be achieved. Not all properties have the capacity to achieve an A grade due to the position or build. Using an EPC can help the property fulfil its potential.
A Commercial EPC is especially important in large properties due to the generally larger size, greater capacity and increased productivity within. New and old buildings could prosper from checking the energy performance. Fulfilling the properties energy saving potential could render significant beneficial monetary results in the future.
As important as the financial benefit of the EPC is the environmental benefit. Wasted energy and carbon emissions escaping from business and personal properties can lead to negative effects upon the earth and its atmosphere. Around 50% of carbon emissions in the UK are emitted by private and commercial buildings; far more than planes and cars produce. The construction, heating, air conditioning, ventilation and insulation of buildings all contribute to energy emissions. Buildings realising their energy performance potential can help decrease harmful emissions.
EPCarlson are a professional team of qualified Building Surveyors, Home Inspectors, Domestic and Commercial Energy Assessors with years of experience surveying personal and commercial buildings. The team uses the most effective techniques available including Thermal Imaging which helps detect energy emitting from a property.
