Energy Performance Certificates

WHAT IS AN EPC?

An EPC is an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). It contains important information on how to reduce the carbon emissions generated by any property which will also lead to a reduction in energy bills, making the property more cost-effective and energy efficient to run. 

DO I NEED AN EPC?

All Properties require an Energy Performance Certificate or EPC when being sold or let. An EPC gives Home Owners, Tenants and prospective buyers an assessment of a property performance rating, in terms of its energy efficiency and environmental impact, to help reduce CO2 output.

EPC’s explained

An EPC is an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). It contains important information on how to reduce the carbon emissions generated by any property which will also lead to a reduction in energy bills, making the property more cost-effective and energy efficient to run.

Energy Performance Certificates were introduced in England and Wales in 2007 and are a legal requirement for a building to be sold, let or constructed. Once obtained, an EPC is valid for 10 years.

The most efficient homes – which should have the lowest fuel bills – are in band A. The Certificate also tells you, on a scale of A-G, about the impact the home has on the environment. Better-rated homes should have less impact through Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions.

The average property in the UK is in bands D-E for both ratings. The Certificate includes recommendations on ways to improve the home’s energy efficiency to save you money and help the environment.

All Properties require an Energy Performance Certificate or EPC when being sold or let.

EPCs come with a detailed recommendation report outlining potential areas that would help reduce the amount of energy you use, thus lessening your carbon dioxide emissions. The  report contains:

  • suggested improvements, like double glazing and fitting loft insulation
  • potential cost savings per annum, when the improvements are carried out
  • the impact the changes would have on energy and carbon emission ratings

As the report suggests, these are recommendations and not enforceable. However, making the recommended changes could make your property more attractive to a potential buyer or tenant by making it more energy efficient, hence lowering running costs.

How does an EPC survey work?

The EPC survey takes between 45 minutes to an hour and includes taking photos of the external elevations, heating/hot water system, loft insulation and windows.

Once completed, the report is generated and lodged with the ‘Energy Performance of Buildings Central Register’. You will then be provided with an emailed copy of your EPC, normally within 24 hours.
