A prerequisite of the Green Deal is that property assessments are carried out by an accredited advisor. The role of the advisor is to visit the property in question, assess the energy performance of the building and advise on appropriate energy efficiency measures available. As an advisor they will have access to a list of energy efficiency saving measures approved under the Green Deal. They will also be expected to follow a strict Code of Practice that specifies the products, materials and building standards suitable for use with the measures.
What is an EPC?
Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are needed whenever a property is:
If you’re selling or renting your home, you must order an EPC for potential buyers and tenants before you market your property.
In Scotland, you must display the EPC somewhere in the property - eg in the meter cupboard or next to the boiler.
An EPC contains:
- 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 it is valid for 10 years.
