Your guide to Energy Performance Certificates


In this section you will find answers to some of the questions that we get asked most often by homeowners and landlords about Energy Performance Certificates.


What is an Energy Performance Certificate?


Energy Performance certificates (EPC) are the governments chosen way of complying with the Energy Performance of Building Directive (EPBD). Its purpose is to record how energy efficient a property is. The certificate will provide a rating from A to G, where 'A' is very efficient and 'G' is very inefficient.


An EPC is accompanied by a recommendation report. This lists the cost effectiveness and other measures (such as low and zero carbon generating systems) to improve the energy rating of the property. The certificate is also accompanied by information that tells the homeowner what ratings could be achieved if all the recommendations were implemented.


Who is responsible for obtaining an EPC?


If you are selling your property then it is your responsibility to get an EPC. If you decide to rent out your home then it is your responsibility as a landlord.


What are the benefits of an EPC?


The energy rating can help rent out your property. They indicate to a prospective tenant or buyer how energy efficient your home is, it should also provide information that may help to reduce the running cost of the property.
