Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs)  

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce carbon dioxide emissions. All homes bought, sold or rented require an EPC.

 

EPCs contain:

  • 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. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions would be if energy saving measures were put in place.

The rating measures the energy and carbon emission efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is 'D'. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.

 

 

EPCs also provide a detailed recommendation report showing what you could do to help reduce the amount of energy you use and your carbon dioxide emissions.

 

 The report lists:

 

  • Suggested improvements, like fitting loft insulation
  • Possible cost savings per year, if the improvements are made
  • How the recommendations would change the energy and carbon emission rating of the property.

 

You don’t have to act on the recommendations in the recommendation report. However, if you decide to do so, it could make your property more attractive for sale or rent by making it more energy efficient.

For more information on saving energy and whether you are eligible for energy efficiency grants to make your home more energy efficient, call CSI.020 8150 6644 / 020 7993 2002

 

 

The certificate also contains:

 

  • detailed estimates of potential energy use, carbon dioxide emissions and fuel costs
  • details of the person who carried out the EPC assessment
  • who to contact if you want to make a complaint

 

What an EPC looks like


Information about energy efficiency and carbon emissions is summarised in two charts that show the energy and carbon dioxide emission ratings. The charts look similar to those supplied on electrical appliances, like fridges and washing machines. An example of an Energy Performance Certificate is shown below.

 

 

You should receive an EPC when you are thinking about buying or renting a home. You’ll need to provide one if you are selling or letting your home. An EPC is valid for ten years.

 

Call to Control System Installation for more information about how and when to get an EPC and how much it cost.

 

An EPC is required when a building is constructed, rented or sold. A building will need an EPC if it has a roof and walls and uses energy to ‘condition an indoor climate’. This means it has heating, air conditioning or mechanical ventilation. For example, a garden shed would not need an EPC if it doesn’t have any heating.

he building can either be a whole building or part of a building that has been designed or altered to be used separately. If a building is made up of separate units, each with its own heating system, each unit will need an EPC.

For more details of when and which types of buildings require an EPC, call CSI Ltd 020 8150 6644 / 020 7993 2002

 

 

Which buildings don’t need an EPC

 

The following buildings don’t need an EPC when they are built, rented or sold:

 

  • places of worship
  • temporary buildings that will be used for less than two years
  • standalone buildings with total useful floor area of less thansquare meters that aren’t used to provide living accommodation for a single household
  • industrial sites, workshops and non-residential agricultural buildings that don't use a lot of energy

 

 

EPC for business

 

Owners of all commercial buildings also have to provide an EPC when they sell or let commercial premises. For more information about this, call CSI Ltd. 020 8150 6644 / 020 7993 2002
