Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are required by law for all homes bought, sold or rented. They give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce carbon dioxide emissions. If you're a landlord or homeowner and need to provide an EPC, you'll need to contact an accredited domestic energy assessor. They will carry out the assessment and produce the certificate. You can use the energy performance certificate register website to search for an accredited domestic energy assessor, search online or look in the phone book.
- Information on your home's energy use and carbon dioxide emissions
- A recommendation report with suggestions to reduce energy use and carbon dioxide emissions
EPCs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions with potential figures that your home could achieve if energy saving measures were put in place.
Its using a grade from "A" to 'G' where 'A' rating is the most efficient. The price of an EPC is set by the market and will depend on the size and location of your property. EPCs are valid for ten years. For more information please go to https://www.gov.uk/buy-sell-your-home/energy-performance-certificates
