Please read this advice before we attend your property
Try and make sure as many of your fixed light fittings as possible have low energy bulbs fitted. This will improve the epc rating.
Loft insulation. If I cannot gain access to the loft or if the loft is boarded over I have to report insulation as ‘unknown’ which could have a negative effect on the epc rating.
In those instances if possible please look to have any paperwork available to prove loft insulation is fitted.
If you have a hot water tank that doesn’t have factory insulated foam attached, make sure there is plenty of jacket insulation around it. Good insulation can make a significant difference to the epc rating.
Cavity wall insulation can have a substantial impact on the epc rating. If you have cavity wall insulation which is not visible due to the property having been rendered after installation this can lower the epc rating as we have to assume there is none. Please make sure you have the paperwork available if your cavity walls have been insulated
Boiler information: To ensure the efficiency of the boiler / heating system can be established. I will look to identify the exact make and model of your boiler / heating system. This is likely to give a higher epc score than the software default setting for the type of boiler / heating system. Occasionally the boiler details / heating system details are not available from a visual inspection.If you feel this could be the case please have any information manuals or service history available.
