Home Information Packs What is an Energy Performance Certificate?

During your survey or home condition report an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) will be provided to you.  The EPC details and grades your home in terms how energy efficient it actually is. 

The grading scale begins from A and ends at G, with A being the highest level of energy efficiency. 

This in fact is very similar to what is found on your household domestic appliances such as a refrigerator.

In addition the Energy Performance Certificate also rates your home against the environmental impact your home has through it carbon dioxide emissions (CO2).

Homeowners with better graded energy efficient homes are more likely to enjoy the benefits of lower house fuels bills.
