Sheldrakeburman – Domestic Energy Assessors

We provide Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) for properties in Wivenhoe, Colchester and the surrounding area. The EPC can only be produced by accredited individuals, we are accredited by Elmhurst Energy. If you are either selling or renting your property and need an EPC please do not hesitate to contact us for a free quotation on 01206 820831 or 07762 560 328.

The aim of the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is to comply with the new EPBD directives implemented in the UK over the past 2 years. The certificate presents several key pieces of information. Ratings are represented with a chart with grades from ‘A’ to ‘G’, where ‘A’ is the most energy efficient and ‘G’ is the least.

Our Domestic Energy Assessors will suggest improvements to the building to make it more energy efficient. These suggestions are an indication only and the law does not require you to implement these suggestions. The aim is to provide prospective tenants and/or purchasers with up to date information on a building’s energy efficiency presented in a cost graph and also a CO2 emission chart to highlight environmental impact. A typical graphical illustration is below.


The law requires from 1stOctober 2008 that any Landlord will have to provide an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) for every property they let to their prospective tenants. Only qualified Domestic Energy Assessors (DEAs) can carry out the inspection and produce and EPC with recommendations to further improve the energy efficiency.
