Commercial EPC Surveys in Southport
Before we can provide you with an Energy Performance Certificate, we first need to perform a full property survey and assessment.
This will be done by one of our accredited energy assessors. They will visit your property and examine the various key areas that have an impact upon the building’s energy-efficiency. The information they gather during this inspection will be used to calculate your EPC rating.
Energy Performance Certificates in Southport
Once we have completed the EPC survey on your property, we are able to calculate your energy performance rating. This forms the basis of an official Energy Performance Certificate, which displays your current rating, along with details of the building’s address, type, and total floor area. The certificate also includes some information for your records, such as the date of inspection, date of certification, and your building’s unique serial number.

As well as providing you with an Energy Performance Certificate detailing your current rating, the team at Direct Energy Surveys will also provide you with our recommendations for improving your energy efficiency. This is part of our commitment to helping client mitigate their environmental impact.
Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards
All properties in England and Wales are subject to the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) with effect from the 1st April 2018. MEES makes it unlawful to grant new leases and lease renewals on properties that do not meet with these standards. If your EPC rating is lower than an E, your property will have fallen short of MEES. Here at Direct Energy Surveys, we can help our Southport clients, providing professional advice and assistance to improve your rating to MEES level.

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.
