Energize Wales Ltd has been established as a result of the conscious and growing need to reduce our energy consumption both in terms of cost to the consumer and CO2 levels in the atmosphere, which in some part contributes to global warming and its associated effects. 
The way in which we light, heat and use our buildings all contribute to this. Even small improvements to the energy performance and the way we use our buildings could have a significant effect on our fuel bills and carbon emissions.

Energy Performance Certificates
Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) have been introduced to help improve the energy efficiency of all buildings. If you are buying, selling, leasing or renting a home or commercial property it is now law to have an Energy Performance Certificate.
The certificate records how energy efficient a property is as a building and provides A-G ratings. Similar labels are now provided with domestic appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines and even new cars.

Energize Wales Ltd offers energy assessments to local and regional clients in both domestic and commercial sectors. An energy assessment means the preparation and issuing of an energy performance certificate (EPC) and the accompanying recommendation report (RR), and the carrying out of any inspections undertaken for the purpose of issuing the EPC or RR.  We are also happy to offer 'On Construction Energy Performance Certificates' for those involved in the construction of new build homes.

From October 2008 all commercial and domestic properties (with little exception) for sale, lease or rent must have available an energy performance certificate. This work is part of European legislation - the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD).

EPC Compliance
The trading standards divisions of local authorities are responsible for ensuring that, when required, buildings have an Energy Performance Certificate.

Due to the varying nature of commercial properties a pre-survey inspection may be necessary in order to provide an accurate quotation. Commercial EPC are available however from £200. Domestic EPC are available from £70 and On Construction EPC from £100.
