Pedro Perez - Facilities and operations manager
B.E.S.T Compliance Ltd was issued an instruction to undertake an investigation for a EPC upgrade on a commercial premises.
We undertook a preliminary EPC and found that this Building as it stood came out as a Grade F.
For the purpose of future activity this grade was unacceptable due to the incoming Minimum energy performance standards (MEPS).
The client didn't’t and couldn’t afford for works to be carried out when the building was being rented out as any upgrades would affect the operation of the building and would have more of a financial consequence to the landlord.
As you can see from the energy usage for the building, lighting accounted for 62% of the total consumption. The major drawback to the lighting was that Tungsten lighting was used throughout with a few T12 and T8 Lights.
BEST established and addressed this problem immediately using our specialist lighting knowledge accompanied with our Expert EPC knowledge we knew the most cost efficient solution to gain the required goal.
New building specific LED lighting was fitted throughout the building for a low cost and the EPC grade was then upgraded when all was fitted to a Grade C.
SAVING: £113 p/a with a payback period of 13 months and an life cycle saving of over £1500
INSTALL: T8 LED tubes and 2D LED fittings
BEST undertook a Commercial EPC for the landlord on this office in Central Birmingham.
The Office already utilised a Split system for cooling and Heating, a Stand Alone Water heater for hot water and the lighting consisted of T8 tubed lights and 2D Bulkhead lights.
The Original EPC came out as a D grade, the conversation was then had leaded by the Land Lord " How do I get an B Grade". BEST than investigated.
The Heating/ Cooling and Hot water was already of a good standard so we saw little point in upgrading these, this left us with the obvious choice of the Lighting.
High Efficiency LED's were selected to replace the exsisiting and the EPC was rerun.
Using our expert knowledge and using our Lighting stock we were able to achieve a EPC Grade B for the low price of £125.
The even better news for the landlord was that the savings in electricity were £113 per year, this gave an incredible payback period of 13 Months.
High Efficiency LED's were selected to replace the existing and the EPC was rerun to include all new components.
Using our Expert Knowledge and using our extensive Lighting stock we were able to achieve an EPC Grade B for the low price of £125.
The Even better news for the Landlord was that the savings in electricity for the lighting alone would be £113 per year.
This gave an incredible payback period of just 13 Months
SAVING: £108 per year with a payback period of 9 Months and an life cycle saving of £1080.
INSTALL: E27 LED Screw bulbs and T8 LED Tubes
BEST took instruction to look at the potential EPC upgrade within this property located in the Black Country.
The retail unit was mainly fitted with Compact Fluorescent Lighting with a few Tube fittings, the heating and cooling was served by a LG Split System and hot water was provided an Instantaeous hot water heater.
The Original EPC came out as an E grade, the best course of action in this scenario was again to upgrade the lighting.
High Efficiency LED's were selected to replace the existing and the EPC was calculated to include all new components.
Using our Expert Knowledge and using our extensive Lighting stock we were able to achieve an EPC Grade B for the low price of £78.
The Even better news for the Landlord was that the savings in electricity for the lighting alone would be £108 per year.
This gave an incredible payback period of just 9 Months.
