Can anyone advise how to heat water for an all-electric flat to comply with a reasonable EPC rating?
The previous EPC stated ‘Hot Water- Electric Immersion, off peak – Average. But recommended an insulation blanket on an already insulated tank. The blanket was added & the ‘Hot Water’ part of the assessment went to ‘Very Poor’
Looking at the ratings across this flat development – they range for ‘Hot Water – Electric Immersion, off peak’ from Average through Poor to Very Poor, all were installed with same system.
There were no recommendations from the assessor on how to improve this score. Noted one flat was not ‘off peak’ but that scored a ‘very poor’.
The EPC issue has been covered off elsewhere, but all we need to know is how do you heat the water to get an average or above without moving to gas! I appreciate I can fit an electric boiler, but is this guaranteed to move the score? Are there any other alternatives?
Would appreciate any suggestions.
