An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a report on the energy efficiency rating of your home. All buildings now require an EPC which is particularly important when you are buying or selling a home.
As well as the energy efficiency graphs the report also makes suggestions for how to improve the property's energy performance, which will lead to reduced carbon emissions, lower energy bills and make the house more attractive to prospective buyers or tenants.
An EPC gives the property a rating from A to G based on its energy efficiency. An 'A' rating shows it's very efficient, meaning lower fuel bills, while 'G' is inefficient, meaning higher fuel bills. The Certificate also shows the building's environmental impact by indicating its carbon dioxide emissions.
