Energy Efficiency Survey London
Looking for an Energy Efficiency Surveyor in London?
Energy efficiency is the management of your existing energy consumption, as well as the limitation of future growth. If a building or appliance delivers more service, for the same input of energy, or the same level of service with a decrease in energy input, its efficiency is seen as being improved. An energy efficiency survey will assess and advise on areas of improvement in your own energy efficiency. It must be remembered that this differs from energy conservation which is the reduction or removal of a service with the goal of saving energy, though both can be effective strategies at reducing energy costs.
Why do I need an Energy Efficiency Survey?
After a non-invasive inspection of the property in question you will receive a report with a detailed analysis on the efficiency of your energy usage, which will highlight and suggest the best areas where your energy efficiency can be improved, saving you money. This will be established by investigating a number of different areas, such as any heat loss, draughts and thermal bridging, as well as mapping any moisture or damp. The performance of existing central and underfloor heating systems can also be taken in to account. PAT testing of your older appliances, such as freezers, clothes washers and dryers is also of interest in establishing overall energy efficiency.
What do I get with an Energy Efficiency Survey?
With a comprehensive picture of your energy efficiency, you may be provided with a number of points of interest where improvements can be made. Such improvements can take the form of installation or improvement of your existing insulation systems, repairs to structural failures in the walls and junctures of your property, to the replacement of aged appliances with new higher rated ones. With your energy efficiency survey you would receive a full write-up of all points of interest with advice on improvements that can be made, all supported with thermographic imagery.

I contacted James de Miguel after a recommendation from a friend. My brand new house developed a series of cracks on the exterior walls and after numerous failed attempts by local builders, surveyors and even the original architect, to try and identify the cause of these cracks I had no clue what to do next. Thankfully, James was able to identify the exact cause of the issues and handed me a detailed report on what had caused the cracking and the next steps to take in order to remedy them. I couldn’t be happier with the result.
I have been working with James de Miguel for a few years now and can honestly say that I have not come across a more savvy surveyor when it comes to fault finding. James is switched on, his reports are always on time and he has never failed to deliver. I would wholeheartedly recommend his services to anyone seeking a definitive answer as to what exactly is going wrong with their building. I now consult with James on all projects I undertake as his input is vital to the success of my projects. A big thank you to James and his team.
I have been building houses for over 10 years and from time to time, new builds develop faults that can be tricky to trace. We brought in James de Miguel to provide us with a report on where we were going wrong with a rather complicated new build that involved a basement that was allowing water ingress. Within half an hour of being on site James and his colleagues identified the issues and provided the exact steps to fix them. Without his survey, I feel we would of been chasing our own tails for days if not weeks, trying to find out why we had so much water ingress. James has saved us time and money and we are very grateful that we found him.
