What Will the Assessor do?


The Green Deal journey starts with a Green Deal Assessment of your property by one of our authorised Green Deal Assessors who will recommend measures that will improve a building's energy performance. Customers can not enter into a Green Deal Plan without a Green Deal Assessment.


Our Green Deal Assessor has the technical knowledge, practical competence and skills to provide consumers with the advice they need in order to make informed decisions about energy efficient measures.


During the assessment, the assessor considers the fabric of the building and looks at how the building is used, including the number of occupants and the temperature it is heated to and when it is heated.


Their resulting Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) will contain:


  • information about a property's energy use and typical energy costs, rating and its efficiency - A is the most energy efficient rating; G is the least.
  • recommended measures for reducing energy use and saving money.


The certificate is valid for 10 years.


Ultimately the customer can choose which measures they wish to install from the Assessor's recommendations.



What does the Assessment Cover?


A Green Deal Assessor will visit the property and ask about its energy use to decide whether occupants could benefit from Green Deal Improvements. To help ensure they provide an accurate assessment, they may ask:


                           1.  How many people live there

                           2.  The type of appliances and heating used

                           3.  How often the heating system is used

                           4.  Whether any energyy-saving measures are already fitted

                           5.  Whether the property is owned or rented

                           6.  Whether the property is a listed building, in a conservation area, built before 1900 or built in a non-traditional



Our assessor will recommend improvements and indicate whether these are expected to pay for themselves through reduced energy costs. The actual energy savings will depend on how much energy the property uses and the future costs of energy. The actual cost of the improvements will depend on the price quoted by Green Deal Providers. All this information is provided in the Green Deal report.


The assessor will then give the householder an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) showing the energy use of of a typical household of the type visited, plus suggestions for improvements. They will also provide an Occupancy Assessment showing how that specific household uses energy, plus some recommendations for reducing energy use and the savings that could be made from the improvements.
