Property Metrics are accredited domestic and commercial energy assessors based in Southsea.
We have been established since 2006.
Property Metrics are licensed to assess the energy efficiency of domestic and commercial buildings as required by law to meet government requirements for selling, letting, leasing, construction and financing of all properties.
We are a part of the local economy, and are familiar with the construction types and development and characteristics of properties in the locality.
We offer a fast, professional service with a quick turnaround for producing EPCs.
We are also members of the Portsmouth Property Association.
We provide domestic EPCs for bedsits, student accommodation, flats, maisonettes, bungalows, houses, of all construction types, as well as holiday homes and static caravans.
Property Metrics are accredited to Level 4 for commercial buildings which means we can assess complex/air conditioned premises such as hotels and shopping centres as well as B&Bs, small businesses, workshops and fast-food outlets.
We work directly for individual owners and landlords, and also for Estate Agents, Rental Agents, Surveyors and Developers.
We cover the central South Coast - Hampshire and West Sussex, including Portsmouth, Southampton, Chichester, Winchester, Petersfield, Havant, Waterlooville and Fareham.
The property will be rated for energy efficiency from A (very efficient) to G (extremely inefficient) in comparison to other buildings. The building will also be rated for the estimated Carbon Footprint, based on typical occupancy.
Where exact data is not available, assumptions are made on the basis of UK Building Regulations applicable at the time of construction.
A domestic energy assessment usually takes no more than an hour, it involves measuring and photographing the premises, gathering data on the type of construction and the space and water heating, lighting and insulation.
What can you do to prepare? It helps if you know the approximate age of the property and have details of any extensions or loft conversions. FENSA certificates for the double-glazing are useful, as are certificates for cavity wall and loft insulation. If you have any renewable sources of energy, such as photovoltaic cells, or solar water heating it's very helpful if you have the installer's specification.
A copy of the EPC report will be emailed out to you immediately upon lodgement in the Govermnent's national Landmark database. It is valid for 10 years.
