Why Do You Need A Commercial Epc Certificate?
An energy performance certificate (EPC) shows the landlord or the owner of a property the energy rating of that premise. The scale for rating of a property goes from A (best) to G (poor) energy efficiency. Purchases and sellers of property are required to have an EPC certificate which lasts for 10 years. Landlords require EPC certificates to ensure their properties are energy efficient before leasing them.
Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) use a rating system from A to G to determine how energy efficient a property is, with ‘A’ being the most efficient and ‘G’ being the least. When compared to a comparable building, an EPC is calculated from standard information on the energy efficiency levels and carbon emissions present in the building.
A recommendation report is produced, outlining how to make modifications that will result in an upgrade in the energy rating. A Commercial EPC Certificate lasts for ten years or until a newer version comes out. Due to the regulatory obligation, a skilled and accredited non-domestic energy assessor must perform all commercial EPC checks.
What Is The Benefit Of A Commercial Epc
An EPC certificate has the benefit of highlighting areas of high energy usage. Landlords are then able to accurately target areas that can help to save tenants money by increasing the energy efficiency rating. EPC’s will also show a landlord the best properties prior to purchase.
Before putting their commercial property on the market or renting it out, landlords or sellers must obtain an EPC certificate for commercial property. You must send the EPC to a prospective tenant or buyer no later than the actual viewing, together with any other written information. You will be fined if you fail to provide an EPC to potential tenants or buyers. If you are selling or leasing your business property or have done any work that could influence its energy rating, you must have a valid EPC evaluation. Offices, warehouses, hotels, and retail buildings are all examples of commercial buildings. If your property is a “New Build,” you’ll need another Energy Performance Certificate called an On Construction Certificate. To comply with the Building Regulations, the individual doing the work must plan for this.
The necessary level (three to five) for commercial EPC Certificates is dictated by the kind of building. A modest building with heating systems of less than 100kW and cooling systems of less than 12kW is classified as level three. Level four is a purpose-built structure with heating and cooling systems that exceed 100 kW and 12 kW, respectively. The heating and cooling systems in level five buildings will be comparable to those in level four, but the design and shape will be more sophisticated.
