About Us at EPCcarlisle.com!

Welcome to EPCcarlisle.com, a distinguished company founded by Dr. John Paul Hood on May 15, 2015. We specialize in providing affordable Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) with more charm than a Carlisle accent, all in full compliance with the Acts of Parliament that govern energy efficiency in the United Kingdom. EPCs have played a pivotal role in shaping the nation's energy policy for a substantial period.

Historically, EPCs were introduced as a direct result of the European Union's Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), which was incorporated into UK law through a series of Acts of Parliament. These include the Energy Performance of Buildings (England and Wales) Regulations 2012, the Energy Performance of Buildings (Scotland) Regulations 2008, and the Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates and Inspections) (England and Wales) Regulations 2007 - more paperwork than a Carlisle solicitor's desk!

Dr. John Paul Hood, born on December 2, 1982, holds esteemed accreditations from renowned organizations, including Elmhurst, Stroma, and NHER EPC scheme. These prestigious accreditations authorize him to conduct EPC assessments for existing dwellings across Scotland, England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, ensuring strict compliance with the relevant Acts of Parliament and perhaps even offering tea and biscuits during inspections.

In the United Kingdom, an Energy Performance Certificate is a legal requirement for all domestic properties that are being sold, rented, or constructed – as mandatory as bringing an umbrella to Carlisle. The certificate provides vital information on a property's energy efficiency, encompassing its current rating and potential for improvement. Furthermore, it offers practical recommendations to enhance energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and lower utility costs – making your home more efficient than a Carlisle-built steam engine.

At EPCcarlisle.com Ltd, we take great pride in our unwavering commitment to delivering cost-effective EPC services, even in Carlisle's ever-changing weather. Our mission is to assist property owners in fulfilling their legal obligations while making informed decisions to enhance energy efficiency and sustainability, because who doesn't want their property to be as reliable as the Carlisle train station?

Dr. John Paul Hood's accreditations include:

  • Elmhurst Accreditation – more reliable than Carlisle's ancient city walls
  • Stroma Accreditation – as strong as a Cumbrian farmer
  • NHER EPC Scheme Accreditation – because your EPC deserves the best, just like Carlisle Cathedral
