Trying to raise my EPC rating as tenants moving out?

Hi Marie - as mentioned a few times, engage a DEA who will model various options to raise the SAP Rating to fall within Band E. This will be more productive than simply reviewing the standard recommendation options, as well as being more cost effective. Should the required improvements costs more than the £3500 (inc.

First the bad news: Check the date on the EPC, as the later versions (2009 & 2012) of the RdSAP software used to create the SAP Rating typically results in a lower rating. Changing all the light bulbs typically only gains 1 SAP point, so only helpful if borderline on rating. Loft insulation is a major factor. Reviewing the recommendations on the EPC report may not identify the best solutions, suggest if contact with EST not helpful engage with local DEA (Domestic Energy Assessor) and request they model options to raise rating to achieve the E39 rating....
