Title: House price increases....

The value of a home can increase by as much as 14% when energy efficiency and renewable measures are installed which raise the property’s Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating by one or two bands.

Research published by the Department of Energy & Climate Change, entitled: ‘An investigation of the effect of EPC ratings on house prices’, has found that as much as £19,000 can be added to the value of a home in the North East of England by increasing the EPC rating from a Band D to a B rating. This is because prospective purchasers are now increasingly focused on how energy efficient a property will be, in order to keep their running costs down. 

“While measures like wall insulation, loft insulation and draught proofing may be the top priority, in order to make a larger shift in the EPC rating and reduce the ongoing running costs it is certainly worth looking at renewable measures,” said Peter Verkempynck, managing director of Daikin UK.

“Once the insulation has been installed, it is likely that a new heat pump installation will work more efficiently as the heat is retained in the building for longer.”

The installation of heat pumps is now starting to increase and government incentive schemes such as the Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) demonstrate government commitment to renewable heat pump systems. This will help achieve the government’s target of 15% of the UK’s energy supply to come from renewable sources by 2020.

Renewable heating systems, such as air source heat pumps, are increasingly being viewed as a highly energy efficient and cost effective way to heat homes and commercial buildings. They take heat from the outside air and turn it into heating and hot water for the property – even when it’s freezing outside. They also negate the need for expensive and unreliable oil or solid fuel deliveries, and the associated high up front purchase costs.
