Residential SAP & EPC

ERS have been involved in the provision of SAP Calculations and EPC’s for several years across many, varied property types.

Dwellings energy performance calculations, as required by UK Part L Building Regulations.

Since 2006 SAP (Standard Assessment Procedure) has been required on all new dwellings in the UK. This is a mandatory assessment method that takes into account insulation levels, heating efficiencies and carbon emissions and shows how a building's predicted emission rates compare with mandatory requirements under current building regulations.

ERS consultants are experienced in the delivery of SAP calculations and efficiently achieving the ‘pass’ rating that you require. We ease your passage through the complicated requirements by providing a high quality, hassle free service at very economical rates.

We provide SAP residential services for:

  • New Dwellings (flats and Houses) – Part L1A
  • Existing dwellings or buildings converted to dwellings and over glazed extensions – Part L1B

Part L Building Regulations changed on 6th April 2014 which, in effect, means that all new dwellings must have a 6% carbon emissions improvement on 2010 regulations.

We will need some information from you to assist the calculations. Please download our list of Information Required for SAP Calculations to see what this includes. Contact us today on 01865 378885.

We also provide the equivalent calculations for commercial buildings. If you need these, please visit our SBEM page.

Residential EPC’s (Energy Performance Certificates)

An energy performance certificate demonstrates the energy efficiency of a building on a scale of band A (most efficient) to band G (least efficient). EPC's are required by the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive applicable to England and Wales, and they are accompanied by advice on how to improve the buildings energy efficiency.

We have a dedicated team of fully qualified assessors and we provide free technical advice and an instant quote over the phone. ERS have many years of experience in the application of both commercial and residential Energy Performance Certificates. Our consultants can review your plans, provide initial advice for free, conduct the calculations and issue certification at the best industry rates.

We’re more than happy to talk you through our services and the broader energy considerations of for your projects, how to gather the information required for EPC’s or SAP assessment.
