EPC REPORTS AND CONSULTATION
EPCs contain information about the properties energy use and typical running costs and as a result, there are also recommendations on how to reduce the cost of utility bills by improving your home.
We are local and independent surveyors and energy assessors based in Nanpean, just outside St Austell. Covering a lot of Cornwall, including St Austell, Truro, Newquay, Bodmin, St Agnes, Perranporth and Fowey.
We’ve been producing Energy Performance Certificates for over 10 years and our domestic energy assessors are fully insured with regular DBS (formally CRB) checks.

My property has received an A/B/C/D/E/F/G rating on the EPC, what does this mean?
What details are available on an EPC?
- Certificate number
This is the number that relates your EPC certificate to your property, its unique.
- Valid until date
Your EPC will be valid for 10 years and this is this is the day it is valid until (providing that there haven’t been any changes to the property).
- The energy rating
At a glance, the current energy rating is displayed at the top and further down, you can see the potential rating based on certain improvements.
- A breakdown of the property’s energy performance
The elements of the property’s makeup are shown with their description and rating of how effective they are.
- The environmental impact your property
One of the biggest contributors to climate change is carbon dioxide (CO2). This section shows you your property’s annual production of carbon dioxide.
The certificate will show recommendations that can be made to the property to create a more efficient home. These can vary in cost and complexity.
- Your estimated energy use and potential savings
The estimated cost shows how much the average household would spend in the property for heating, lighting and hot water. It is not based on how energy is used by the people living at the property.
