Home Energy Audits

About Home Energy Audits

A Home Energy Audit is a survey to tell you how energy efficient your home is. The more energy efficient your home, the more money you will save on your energy bills.

Having a Home Energy Audit done on your home tells you:

  • how much energy you’re currently using
  • recommendations of home improvements to make your home more energy efficient
  • behaviours you can change to cut your energy bills, such as turning down your room thermostat by 1°C to save up to 10% on your heating bill

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is awarded to a home as part of a Home Energy Audit.

 

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs)

An EPC tells you how efficient your home is and gives it a rating from A (very efficient) to G (inefficient). Information about how your home is built and how it is heated is used to generate an EPC.

It gives you a personalised list of home improvements that can increase your home’s EPC rating.

It also estimates how much energy your household currently uses. It then shows you how much energy you can save by making each of the home improvements.

EPC ratings give you a standardised way to compare your home with others.

EPCs can only be generated by a qualified assessor.

 

What a Home Energy Audit involves

A qualified assessor will visit you at your home to carry out an audit. This visit takes between 45 minutes to 1.5 hours. The assessor will need access to every room in your home so that they can take measurements, photos and notes on how it’s built.

The assessor will ask you questions, such as whether you have your heating on a timer, and if so when it switches on and off.

After the visit the assessor will use the information they collected about your home to generate the EPC. They put the information into an online tool that has been personalised for Jersey homes.

The assessor will send you a copy of the EPC and run through the recommendations with you.

 

Cost of a Home Energy Audit

The cost of a Home Energy Audit varies depending on factors such as:

  • age of your home
  • size of your home
  • if your home has had lots of extensions

It is likely to be in the region of £200-£400.  This is a guide only and we recommend you get at least three comparison quotes before you select your assessor.

Funding for a Home Energy Audit

We are currently offering up to £200 funding per property towards a Home Energy Audit. Funding is dependent on the size of your home:

  • £150 for 1-2 bedroom property
  • £200 for 3+ bedroom property

You can apply for funding if:

  • you own the property
  • the property hasn’t had a Home Energy Audit before

Funding is not available for Andium Homes properties.

Apply for Home Energy Audit funding

Funding will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. You will be told within five working days of applying whether funding is available to you.

Your funding must be confirmed before your Home Energy Audit takes place, and must be carried out by a qualified assessor. We recommend you get at least three comparison quotes before you select your assessor.

If your Home Energy Audit costs more than subsidy amount you are responsible for paying the extra.

Funding will be valid for eight weeks from the date it is issued. If the audit is not completed by the agreed date or any other terms and conditions are breached, the full cost of the audit is your responsibility.

You must email Energy Advice at the earliest opportunity should you not be proceeding with a Home Energy Audit for whatever reason so that the subsidy can be reallocated.

 

Landlords and multiple homes

Landlords that own more than one property may apply multiple times. Up to 10 subsidies can be claimed per person.

If you would like to apply for a Parish owned property email us to find out more.
