EPC

What is an EPC?

All domestic and commercial buildings in the UK available to buy or rent must have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). If you own a home, getting an energy performance survey done could help you identify ways to save money on your energy bills.

Much like the multi-coloured sticker on new appliances, EPCs tell you how energy efficient a building is and give it a rating from A (very efficient) to G (inefficient). They let the person who will use the building know how costly it will be to heat and light, and what its carbon dioxide emissions are likely to be.

The EPC will also state what the energy efficiency rating could be if improvements are made, and highlights cost-effective ways to achieve a better rating. Even if you rent your home, some improvements noted on the EPC might be worth your while - such as switching to more energy-efficient light bulbs.

How long are they valid for?

Once produced, EPCs are valid for ten years.

Do I need an EPC?

Yes, it is government legislation that without an EPC a property is not allowed to be marketed for sale or to let. Smart Estates offer EPC's at very reasonable rates since we have an in-house Energy Assessor.
