Energy Performance Certificates (EPC)
All domestic and commercial buildings in the UK available to buy or rent must have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).
What is an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)?
EPCs tell you how energy efficient a building is and give it a rating from A (very efficient) to G (inefficient). EPCs 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 may be worth implementing, such as switching to more energy-efficient light bulbs.
As part of the assessment to check whether your house is eligible for free insulation or a gas boiler, you will require an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) for your property. Arktek will complete this free of charge whilst assessing your property.
EPCs are valid for 10 years from issue.
As from the 1st April 2018 there is a requirement for any properties rented out in the private rented sector to normally have a minimum energy performance rating of E on an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).
