EPC in Widnes
Why Do I Need An EPC?
Before a home in Widnes can be sold or rented, you'll need to get an Energy Performance Certificate. Its the law to have one when the property is marketed for sale or rent. To get an EPC in Widnes, we've made it really easy. We're based in Warrington and cover Widnes and the surrounding areas.
We'll have your EPC complete in no time!
What is an Energy Performance Certificate?
An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a document that shows information about how energy efficient your property is. Your estate agent or solicitor will need the EPC before your home can be sold. Its also the law to have a valid EPC when a new tenancy starts. Your home will be given a rating on a scale of A (best performing) to G (worst performing). Its purpose is to give potential buyers or tenants information about how well a property uses energy and to give an indication of how much it will cost to run.

We understand that moving home is a hectic time so don't worry about having a spotless home. We can assure you, we've seen messier houses than yours!
It would be helpful if you can make sure we can access every room including any cellars and loft spaces. We'll also need to take a quick pic of the gas and electric meters which can sometimes be a challenge
If you've had any alterations completed on your home, such as extensions, new windows or cavity wall insulation, any documentation will be helpful. This helps us to date the upgrades and you'll come out with a better score!

Local EPC Assessor for Widnes Landlords
If you need an EPC for your rental property, we can help! We've been working closely with Widnes landlords. Specifically around the potential rule changes making the minimum energy efficiency score for rentals a band C.
Recently we worked with a local landlord who needed a new EPC and wanted to future proof his investment. We assessed his house and ran some mock EPCs to show which energy saving upgrades would get it to a band C. The reports showed that adding solar panels would land him comfortably in a C band. We reassessed the property once they had been installed and now he has a compliant EPC that will last until 2033. As an added bonus the solar panels let him take advantage of the Smart Export Guarantee and sell excess energy back to the grid. This offsets the upfront costs of the solar system.
If you need to improve the EPC score on your rental, give us a call on 01925 699 321.
Fantastic service from Ian. Called for an EPC, it was done the following day. Exceptional! Highly recommended. Will be keeping his number saved! Thank you again.

How to Get a Commercial EPC in Widnes

Give us a call on 01925 699 321 and we'll arrange a site visit at a time that suits you and your business. If its easier for us to visit on an evening or a weekend, that's no problem.
The time a site visit will take depends on the size of your building and how many rooms it has. We've given a rough indication below
- EPC for a Cafe: Single Floor with 3-4 rooms - Approx 45 minutes
- EPC for an Office: Two Floors with 8-10 rooms - Approx 1.5 hours
- EPC for a Care Home: Multiple floors with 15-20 Rooms - Approx 2-3 hours
- EPC for a Hotel: Complex layout with 30-40 rooms - Approx 4 Hours
- EPC for a Warehouse: Large Building with multiple rooms - Approx 2 Hours
Once the onsite commerical EPC assessment is complete, we'll need around 24 hours to complete the calculations and register the certificate. Again, this is dependant on the size of the building. Smaller buildings will be ready faster, whilst large EPCs could take a little longer.
Cost of a Commercial EPC Widnes
The cost of a Commercial EPC in Widnes is dependent on the complexity of the project. It's not all about size. For example, there is less work involved for us to complete a 5,000m2 warehouse with 20 rooms than a 1,000m2 Hotel with 50 rooms.
Our Commercial EPC price in Widnes starts at £150. We like to have a good chat with our customers prior to generating a quote to make sure the price for your EPC is accurate.
We will provide you with an all inclusive price that gives you everything you need to tick the Commercial EPC compliance box. We never add any extras or change the price once agreed.
A Commercial EPC Can Help Your Business
Many businesses are looking to reduce overheads. Energy usage is a particular concern at the moment with energy prices on the rise.
For our Widnes customers, our commercial energy certificate will give practical advice on how to reduce energy consumption. The EPC is a highly specific report for your building with recommendations to match. That could be replacing an old boiler to improve your EPC score or adding solar to the roof to generate your own electricity. Your EPC recommendations are a road map to a business that consumes less energy.
By reducing your energy consumption, not only do you save money on energy bills, you also become less reliant on the grid and the fluctuating costs. This will help with business continuity and keeping steady prices for your customers.

Improve Your EPC Score
There are a few things that most home owners are able to do quickly with little cost that will improve the EPC rating of their home as well as making it warmer and cheaper to run.
- Energy Saving Light Bulbs: Before your EPC assessment make sure you've got energy saving light bulbs in every fixed light fitting. Sometimes one bulb can be the difference between a Band C and a Band D. Energy saving lightbulbs are either the older CFL ones that take a while to warm up or more modern LEDs.
- Loft Insulation: Topping up your loft insulation to the current building regualtions levels will stop you losing excess heat through your roof and keep your home warmer. This is 270mm. If you have this amount, you'll get top marks on the EPC in this area.
- Heating Controls: When completing an EPC, we're looking for a room thermostat, a programmer and TRV valves on the radiators. A new programmable thermostat installed by your local plumber is an inexpesive way to tick two of these three off and gain some extra points on the EPC.
If you want to vastly improve your EPC score, give us a call for some personalised advice but in general, you need to make sure the boiler is efficient, all your external walls are insulated and consider adding a renewable energy source like solar panels.
