At Direct Energy Surveys, we are committed to helping our clients reduce the energy output (and subsequent environmental impact) of their commercial properties. Our EPC reports will include recommendations for improving your energy efficiency. Not only will this help bolster your company’s green credentials, it will also save you energy and money.
Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards
Both commercial and domestic properties are subject to Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES). From the 1st April 2018, it is unlawful to grant new leases or renew existing leases on properties that fail to meet these standards. While EPC ratings run from A to G, only properties rated from A to E will have met MEES. At Direct Energy Surveys, we can provide professional advice and assistance on how to achieve this standard.

Looking for Domestic EPC information?
If you’re selling or renting your home, a domestic EPC is legally required.
Your EPC helps potential buyers and tenants make an informed decision based on the energy efficiency and running costs of your property. Similarly, if you’re selling, marketing or renting business premises to new owners or leaseholders, you’ll need a commercial EPC. Commercial energy assessment helps to determine the building’s energy rating. Want to find out more? Browse our EPC assessment FAQ, which includes typical EPC costs.
