Getting an Energy Performance Certificate… #1

Category: Barn Conversion Journal May 29th, 2012 by mbc

Time to get my finger out and get an Energy Performance Certificate for the barn sorted out.

After some hunting, rechecking an old forum post that I made a while ago and an email to an assessor, I established that I need an “On Construction” EPC.

I refuse to use one of the national companies that come up on a Goggle search. I mean the ones that attempt to appear to be local – type ‘EPC <your town>’ into a Google search and you’ll see what I mean. Also, not all domestic energy assessors provide the “On Construction” version of the certificate as it requires the full version of the SAP software (thanks Clair A!). Therefore, I’m using the Landmark website, with a search for ‘SAP Energy Performance Certificate’ (which I’m guessing is correct) to find an assessor locally.

There seem to be several options, so, emails sent, let’s see how we get on…

30th May, Do I need a ‘air permeability test’ or not? The jury is still out…

1st June, the air permeability test can be a good way to boost and overall poor SAP score … so hopefully I don’t need one…

3rd July, Transitional arrangements
Gosh, I’m letting this drag on … I don’t need the permeability test as I should be able to conform to the previous reg’s rather than the current ones as “work on site commenced prior to 1 October 2010” >> http://www.nhbc.co.uk/NHBCPublications/LiteratureLibrary/Technical/TechnicalExtra/filedownload,44601,en.pdf

Limewash recipe
The limewashed gable-end of the barn, done in October 2008 needs a bit of a touch-up so I’ve been looking for a ‘recipe’ for limewash.
