Stacey Surveys Ltd
All commercial buildings require an Energy Performance Certificate EPC on sale or rent, this includes all buildings in the Newport area. We can supply a commercial certificate from £135, dependant on the size of the building.
Sales or lettings advertisements in the commercial media should show the EPC rating of the property being advertised. This may be an estate agent or letting agent in Newport, or a national Company.
The commercial EPC looks similar to the energy labels now provided with vehicles and many household appliances. Its purpose is to indicate how energy efficient a commercial property is. The energy cert will provide an energy rating of the commercial building in Newport from A to G, where A is very efficient and G is the least efficient. This allows potential purchasers or tenants to see information on the energy efficiency and carbon emissions from the non-domestic building, so they can consider energy efficiency as part of their investment.
Non-domestic EPC certificates and the accompanied recommendation report, is important because nearly 50 per cent of the UK’s energy consumption and carbon emissions arise from the way our buildings are heated and used, including the lighting it uses. Small changes to the commercial property in Newport, could have a significant effect in reducing energy.
Commercial EPC certificates are produced using standard methods and assumptions about energy usage, so that the efficiency of a property in Newport, can easily be compared with another building in Wales and England.
A Commercial EPC report is required by law if you are selling or renting a nondomestic building.
