Lower your energy use 

Lower your energy use 

Do you have high electricity bills or are you a commercial occupier or Landlord worried about the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) affecting your ability to let premises in future? Have your energy bills increased significantly with energy price rises and do you want to consider your options to reduce these? 
80% of the existing UK housing stock needs upgrading to improve its energy performance. It is anticipated that all homes will need to be a minimum of EPC C by 2030 and the Future Homes Standard will be in place by 2025.  
KIM have delivered a number of retrofit projects to improve insulation, switch to an all-electric heating system or install renewable energy sources. 
 
KIM can help you to lower energy use, decarbonise your home and reduce your annual energy costs through a combination of improvements, heating calculations and air testing. We work with a number of specialist consultants and will bring together the relevant team members to ensure the optimal outcome for your project. 

Church Barn - Energy Efficient Retrofit 

KIM worked with heating and plumbing engineers to design a new heating system to replace the original oil-fired boiler that had reached the end of its useful life. 
 
The old wooden doors and windows were replaced with aluminium frames to improve the acoustic and thermal performance of the building prior to upgrading the heating system to an air source heat pump. A new underfloor heating system was installed in the ground floor and heating calculations completed to ensure the existing radiators would provide adequate heat to the remainder of the house. 
 
Further works are planned to re-insulate the roof, install solar panels and batteries for energy storage. 

Retail Premises – Market Harborough 

The occupier approached KIM prior to their lease renewal of a terraced building with an EPC F as they were not able to continue leasing the building due to the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) that came into force from June 2022. 
 
KIM reviewed the EPC Recommendation Report, developed a Specification and then costed the works to provide a budget for the EPC improvement works. This was then shared between Landlord and Tenant to establish and agree which parties were responsible for the improvements.  

Other Services 

Air Testing - KIM can carry out air testing for building regulations and EPC certificates when building works are completed. We work alongside mechanical and electrical contractors to design systems that are appropriate to the property in question as well as the client's specific requirements. 
 
Drone Surveys - KIM can complete drone surveys to avoid the costs of access equipment and scaffolding for hard to reach areas of a property or estate.
