Course overview

It is the role of the DEA to collect data on the dimensions, construction, heating and hot water provision of a property. They then enter the information into an approved software programme. This, in turn, will produce the EPC.

The first part of the certificate is a benchmarked measure of the home’s energy performance on a scale A to G, where A is very efficient and G is at the other end of the spectrum.

The second part of the EPC is to produce cost effective recommendations for improving the energy performance of the home. Information on renewable energy and recommendations on energy efficient behaviour are also aspects.

It is the role of the Domestic Energy Assessor to interpret whether these are practical for his/her client.

What is an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)?

The Energy Performance Certificate will look broadly similar to a certificate on a refrigerator. Its purpose is to record, in a clear unambiguous format, how energy efficient the home is as a building.

Using colour charts, the EPC records the current rating and compares this with the rating at which the owner or tenant should aim.
