WHAT ARE ENERGY PERFORMANCE CERTIFICATES?
EPCs can only be carried out by an accredited Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA) and involves carrying out a survey determining the energy efficiency and environmental impact.
The certificate shows a building's
energy efficiency on a A-G scale (where A is the most efficient and G
the least efficient), in graphical format.
The Certificate includes recommendations to improve the home's energy efficiency, save money and help the environment. The certificate is then Lodged on a central database where it can be accessed using a specific report number.
WHY IS THE CERTIFICATE INPORTANT?
Nearly 40 per cent of the UK's energy consumption arises from the way in which our buildings are lit, heated and used. Even minor changes in energy performance will have a significant effect in reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions.
