Businesses and homeowners are becoming increasingly conscious of their carbon footprint, and are continuously looking for ways to conserve energy usage, reduce carbon emissions and improve energy efficiency in domestic and commercial buildings.
Whether you’re a developer building a new housing estate, a homeowner wanting to extend or a landlord seeking to improve the energy performance of a property it can be difficult to know where to start when it comes to being more energy efficient. That’s where energy conservation consultants come in.
With more than 15 years experience, Falcon Energy have helped domestic and commercial clients to minimise their environmental impact, improving energy efficiency and sustainability whilst reducing energy costs.

What is energy conservation consultancy?
An energy consultant works alongside developers, homeowners and business owners to provide cost effective and actionable ways to save energy and reduce energy waste. This could be related to a collection of new build properties that need energy efficient building materials in order to achieve a certain EPC rating, or existing buildings that need to be retrospectively improved in order to reduce wasted energy. Our energy consultants will be able to advise you on the best energy saving options.
Ultimately, energy consultants will undertake a range of energy audits in order to understand your building and identify what needs to be done to achieve the desired energy saving.
What services does an energy consultant provide?
An energy consultant will provide a range of different services that will not only help with sustainability but also provide cost savings.
Save energy and money with our energy consulting services which include:
Testing and calculations
We provide a range of different energy efficiency tests and calculations to understand the energy consumption of a building. Our testing and calculations services include:
- Air tightness testing
- Sound insulation testing
- Part F ventilation testing
- Thermographic surveys
- New build SAP’s
- Extension SAP’s
- Part G water calculations
- SBEM calculations
Whilst the majority of these tests need to be performed on the physical building itself, using an energy consultant from the planning stage of any new construction or extension will ensure that all plans are in line with energy efficiency measures, meaning the physical build itself will be compliant.
By not consulting an expert beforehand, you risk having to make amends to the materials or technology used which can be time consuming and costly.
Renewable energy install and advice
Renewable energy sources are becoming increasingly popular and with so many options available there really is something to suit every situation. Falcon Energy is fully qualified to install air source heat pumps in accordance with the RECC (Renewable Energy Consumer Code) and can provide expert advice on the installation of solar panels.
This gives you peace of mind that you’re investing in the right technology for your needs. All of our energy professionals are fully qualified and have a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to renewable energy sources and improving energy efficiency.
Without a valid EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) you’re unable to sell your property to potential buyers. As a landlord there are also Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) you must meet in order to be able to let the property out.
An energy consultant will be able to help you understand the ways in which you can improve the EPC of your building. This not only provides ways to reduce wasted energy, it is also a great way to make potential savings on your energy bills and improve the value of your home.
Our energy consultancy experts are fully qualified to provide energy surveys and Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) calculations for new builds, as well as issue EPC certificates.
