An energy performance certificate (EPC) is a report that measures the energy efficiency of a home or business. The report provides information on how energy-efficient the property is and offers recommendations on ways to improve energy efficiency.
EPCs are required by law when selling or renting properties in the UK and must be conducted by a qualified energy assessor. The report contains information on the property’s energy use, energy costs, and carbon dioxide emissions. It also includes an energy efficiency rating from A (very efficient) to G (inefficient).
Improving the energy efficiency of your property can save you money on energy bills and make your home or business more environmentally-friendly. Recommendations on how to improve energy efficiency are included in the EPC report. These recommendations may include installing energy-efficient lighting, insulation, and heating systems.
