What is an Energy Performance Certificate EPC?
The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a crucial legal requirement for any property that is to be sold, let, or constructed in England and Wales. Introduced in 2007, the EPC measures a property’s energy efficiency on a scale of A-G and is valid for 10 years.
A better rating indicates a lower impact on the environment through Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions. The average EPC rating for properties in the UK is band D. In addition to energy efficiency ratings, the EPC also provides recommendations on ways to enhance a property’s energy efficiency to help save costs and reduce environmental impact.
