Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)

The EPC
An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) helps potential tenants decide whether to buy or occupy a property by giving it an energy rating on a scale of A - G. Properties rated A offer high energy efficiency - and therefore lower fuel bills - while G provide the least efficiency and higher fuel usage. Ratings are based on the performance potential of the building fabric itself along with the heating, ventilation and lighting systems - not on how they are actually used. The energy potential of the building is shown as a Carbon Dioxide (CO2) based index. Along with your EPC certificate, you will also receive a report which provides recommendations for enhancing the building's energy performance.

An EPC may be valid for up to 10 years. Owners of any property available for rent are obliged to provide an EPC to prospective tenants. Similarly, builders, when constructing a property, must provide an EPC and recommendations report as part of the handover to a new owner.
