I have an EPC from 2009 which rated my house as a D67 this noted that there was ‘partial double glazing ‘ and recommended that full double glazing be fitted, which would boost the rating to a C76. This was duly done.
This report also confirmed that FULL Cavity wall insulation WAS in place I know this to be true from my own experience of working in the loft. The roof insulation is well over the top
The second EPC was commissioned and I naturally expected a C76. This one noted that there was full double glazing but now rated it as a D60?. This included a rating of – Assumed partial cavity wall insulation and recommended full cavity wall insulation (which we actually have) which would raise it to a D67.
There is a worrying amount of inconsistency and potential unnecessary expense.
Is there an ‘Ofgem’ type of Ombudsman for EPC s or do we just have to set one inspector against the other?
I would prefer some sort of Official referee to expedite the decision and avoid personal unpleasantness.
