Why should members consider this cover?

Elmhurst Energy’s insurance policy currently provides free Professional Indemnity (PI) and Public Liability (PL) cover up to the value of £5 million. This policy covers the activities of Elmhurst accredited members for the production of Energy Certificates and reports from other related disciplines.

However, additional activities commonly undertaken by energy assessors such as offering advice (non-verbal, binding), and also giving guidance to property owners, is not covered by this policy. These activities are crucial for energy assessors who want to deliver a full energy assessment and advice service to their clients.

Elmhurst members can obtain a quote for Enhanced PI cover which will allow them to undertake the following activities:

✅ Energy assessment using the methodology for which the assessor is accredited, but where the reports are not submitted to Elmhurst
✅ Production of ad hoc reports to demonstrate the viability of energy saving improvements
✅ Floor plan diagrams for use by the agent in promoting the property for sale or rent
✅ Photographs for use by the agent in promoting the property for sale or rent
✅ Energy saving actions that the occupants can do for themselves
✅ Referring building owners to the government endorsed list of approved installers that are able to deliver the recommended measure
✅ Advice on energy efficiency legislation that impacts on building owners (e.g. minimum energy efficiency regulations) and how to meet them or to claim exemption
✅ Offering advice to achieve building regulatory compliance calculations to establish a building’s energy performance such as: Psi-value calculations, U-Value calculations, Water use calculations and Overheating calculations
