information about a property’s energy use and typical energy costs

recommendations about how to reduce energy use and save money

An EPC gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and is valid for 10 years however for your EPC to be eligible for the Domestic RHI, it must not be older than 24 months. Your EPC also needs to accurately reflect information about your property at the time you apply. If you’ve undertaken construction work on your property, you may need to get a new EPC to ensure it reflects your property correctly at the point you apply to the scheme.

How much will it cost?

Every property is different and therefore we provide estimates based on floor area, other heat sources, age of property and levels of insulation. Ground Source Heat Pumps tend to be a little more expensive than Air Source and have additional ground work costs. Solar panels cost less but we’d advise the add on of a battery storage unit. A Heat Pump is likely to cost more than a standard heating system but should be an investment due to potential savings on fuel bills, plus proposed and current grant schemes. For independent advice about likely running costs and potential savings contact the Energy Saving Trust www.energysavingtrust.org.uk. Please pop us an email or give us a call and we will be happy to give you an idea of cost based on your own installation requirements.
