Finding a domestic energy assessor

A domestic energy assessor is a Pro that specialises in evaluating the energy efficiency of a property. They are trained to assess different parts of a property so that they can provide an accurate Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), a legal document that must be updated every ten years.
When you need an EPC, you want to know that you are being taken care of by a top quality professional. Plentific can help you find your ideal candidate in no time at all: all it takes is to post a job with to have some of the best domestic energy assessors in your local area contact you with custom quotes. There is no pressure to accept a quote; in fact, you can take all the time you like and you can even visit each member’s profile to view their qualifications and past projects. Each and every job booked via Plentific will also be covered by the Plentific Guarantee.

What does a domestic energy assessor do?

A domestic energy assessor's job is to assess a property's energy efficiency in order to create an EPC. Wasting energy is not just dangerous for the environment, but it is also highly expensive. Homes with a high energy rating will be cheaper to heat and keep running, while homes with a low rating will inevitably waste money.
Your home’s EPC will be based around several different factors, including the property’s age, building type, the number of floors, the type of heating system, the number of rooms, ventilation and so on. All of this information will be collected and then put into an approved software programme to generate an EPC rating, which will range from A (best) to G (worst).
Domestic energy assessors can also be asked to create a ‘New Build EPC’. This is similar to a normal EPC, but is aimed at newly built dwellings, as well as dwellings that were created by a change of use or conversion. As well as doing the normal checks, a domestic energy assessor will also go over a build’s architectural plans and details of construction in order to produce a new build EPC, which must be provided to the owner within five days.
When a domestic energy assessor produces an EPC, they will also provide practical information on how a property’s rating can be improved. This could include installing insulation, buying energy-efficient appliances or simply changing bad habits.

What do you need to know about hiring a domestic energy assessor?

The first thing to check before hiring a domestic energy assessor is whether or not you actually need one. An EPC remains valid for ten years, even if the property in question changes hands. However, an entirely new one can be required following a conversion or extension project, especially if it creates additional dwelling space.

If you are trying to sell or rent out a property, you will need to make the information from your latest EPC available to any interested parties. A solid copy should also be provided to the final buyer or tenant. When you are trying to raise interest in your property, it can pay to get an up to date EPC even if you do not need to, especially if you have had work done on the property since your last assessment. The better your rating, the more attractive your property will look to buyers.

The second thing that you should keep in mind is that you should always be sure to properly screen your potential candidates when hiring a domestic energy assessor. To practice, a domestic energy assessor must have a Level 3 certificate in domestic energy assessment, as well as membership in the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) accreditation scheme. By law, a domestic energy assessor must also have an active professional indemnity insurance policy.

Keep a close eye out for any candidates that belong to a national tradesmans’ organisation, such as the Energy Managers Association (EMA). Groups like this have strict entry requirements and members will be required to deliver top quality work on every job.

Another valuable way to screen your candidates will be to look over reviews from their previous customers. This is key for learning about how a candidate behaves on the job: do they turn up and complete their work on time? Are they polite? Do they provide useful and practical advice?

How much does it cost to hire a domestic energy assessor?

Typically, the cost of hiring a domestic energy assessor to create an EPC will be between £60 and £120. This can vary depending on the size and other elements of a property, such as the number of windows and ease of access. Where you live in the UK can also be an important factor. Tradesmen charge regional rates, with areas in London and the south of England usually having higher prices than those elsewhere. To make sure that you get a competitive rate, collect quotes from at least three different candidates.
