Energy Performance Certificates (EPC)
Did you know that buildings now produce half of all the UK's carbon emissions? This is almost twice the carbon emissions produced by cars and aeroplanes combined! The way a building is manufactured, constructed, insulated and ventilated all contribute to its carbon emissions. Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) are now being introduced to improve the energy efficiency of buildings.
Accredited energy assessors produce an energy performance certificate alongside an associated report which suggests any improvements to make a building more energy efficient. Oeco Garden Rooms are pleased to be offer its customers a predicted Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) with each garden room, studio, lodge or office.
The Energy Performance Certificate provides an energy rating for the building. The energy rating scale runs from "A" to "G", with "A" being the highest and "G" being the lowest. The average UK home only achieves a "D" rating.
Independent assessment of our garden rooms indicates that our buildings perform extremely well in both environmental impact and energy efficiency. All our garden building are predicted to achieve a "B" rating for energy efficiency and a "B" rating for environmental impact. Don't forget the average house only achieves a "D” rating!
Oeco manufacture truly habitable outdoor rooms: Utilising heavy duty structural grade timbers, the highest quality PIR thermal insulation materials and superior argon gas filled double glazing. Each outdoor room, office, studio or lodge is manufactured and designed for all year round use and not just for summer!
