The EPC provides an energy performance rating for your property - providing prospective purchasers with an assessment of the property's energy consumption, together with a list of practical measures that can be taken to reduce fuel bills and carbon emissions.
The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) shows the energy efficiency rating and environmental impact of the property. It uses an A to G rating system similar to the ones used on fridges and washing machines. It also advises on cost effective improvements that can be made to cut bills and reduce emissions. They must be produced by a certified domestic energy assessor or home inspector. Get an EPC quote.
The EPC is the part of the Home Information Pack required in order to meet the requirements of the European Energy Performance of Buildings Directive. Now that HIPs are to abolished, EPCs will remain as a mandatory document - although in what form and in what way mandatory it is uncertain.
