ECO WARMTH help you find out if regulations apply to you 

Solar Panel Grant in Perthshire

The Domestic Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES) Regulations is a minimum energy efficiency level for domestic private rented properties.

The Regulations apply to all domestic private rented properties that are:

  • let on specific types of tenancy agreement
  • legally required to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)

Answer these questions to find out whether your property is covered by the Regulations

1. Is your property let on one of the following types of domestic tenancies:

  • an assured tenancy?
  • a regulated tenancy?
  • a domestic agricultural tenancy?

2. Is your property legally required to have an EPC?

If the property you let has been marketed for sale or let, or modified, in the past 10 years then it will probably be legally required to have an EPC.

If you answered Yes to both these questions, and your property has an EPC rating of F or G, you must take appropriate steps to comply with the requirements of the MEES Regulations. We explain how to do this below.

What is an EPC?

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) measures the energy efficiency of a property on a scale of A-G. 

Energy efficiency is the measure of how good a house is at retaining heat.

Energy Performance Certificates were introduced in 2007 and are a legal requirement for a building to be sold, let or constructed. Eco Warmth issue EPC’s that are valid for 10 years. 

Who needs an EPC?

EPCs are required before a property is marketed for sale or rent

What homes get the best EPC rating? 

The most efficient homes – which should have the lowest fuel bills – are in band A. The Certificate will tell you on a scale of A-G, the energy efficiency of your home along with the potential scale after improvements are made, with ‘A’ being the most efficient home. Better-rated homes should have less impact through Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions. The EPC eco warmth have given you will show the amount of CO2 emissions produced by that property in tonnes, and on the amount this could be reduced by. 

Why do EPCs save you money on bills?

The average property in the UK is in bands D-E for both ratings. The Certificate eco warmth provides includes recommendations on ways to improve the home’s energy efficiency to save you money and help the environment

What is involved in an EPC survey?

Our very own ECO WARMTH Energy Assessor will need to access all rooms as well as the loft. They are also required to inspect heating systems and controls, take measurements and take photographs of all key data included in the survey. The survey is non invasive and a visual inspection is all that is required.  You can ask the assessor how long he expects to be as the time varies. 

How do I get an EPC

Contact eco warmth Scotland and we will be happy to assist you by completing an EPC for your property done by one of our fully trained domestic energy assessors. 

How much does an EPC cost?
