Make informed energy efficient decisions with an energy performance certificate (EPC).
Measuring the energy efficiency of your residential or commercial property, EPCs are not only great to let you know what the energy efficiency of your property is at the moment but also lets you know what it could be if you were to implement suggested changes. When getting an EPC, your property will be given a rating from A, very efficient, to G, very inefficient, and the certificate will last for ten years.
Every EPC includes an estimated current and potential energy cost over the next three years broken down into three categories: lighting, heating and hot water. It’s important to note that these costs and savings are based on a typical household and not tailored to you. In reality the costs will most likely be a bit higher as an EPC does not include the use of home appliances such as kettles or refrigerators.
Each of your properties features, such as walls, floors, heating systems and more will be given an independent rating which can help you better identify areas that may need to be invested in. EPCs will also include a list of recommended changes you could make to improve the energy efficiency of your home and how much costs you could save. The suggested changes range from installing better wall insulation to opting for energy efficient light bulbs, and can therefore help tenants to make some small improvements.
