Energy Performance Certificates

What's an EPC?

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) tell householders about a home’s energy efficiency using A to G ratings like those used to rate fridges and boilers.

How you can make cost-effective improvements to your home?

The Certificate also makes recommendations for cost-effective improvements to help cut fuel bills and carbon dioxide emissions. Our homes currently account for 27% of the UK’s Carbon emissions, contributing to Climate Change. It is estimated that by following the recommendations in an EPC, an average of £300 a year can be saved on fuel bills. The Energy Saving Trust estimate that annual savings of up to £220 and 1.5 tonnes of CO² can be achieved by installing loft insulation. Cavity wall insulation will save up to £160 and 1 tonne of CO² with less than a 2 year payback and a 25 year (CIGA) guarantee. “A” rated condensing boilers are over 90% efficient and some older boilers are as low as 55% efficient, replacing your old boiler with a new condensing boiler and heating controls can reduce your CO² by 1.25 tonnes a year and save up to £240 (40% of your fuel bill) a year.

All homes that are sold or rented now require an Energy Performance Certificate, they are also required to gain access to Government grant schemes such as the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), Feed In Tariffs (FITs) and the Green Deal. The EPC has been re-designed and the report provides detailed information on all possible energy saving improvements and whether Green Deal funding will be available.
