Guide to Energy Performance Certificates

All sellers are required to provide an up to date Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) when selling a property. This assessment must be carried out by an accredited domestic energy assessor.

The cost of the assessment and the resulting certificate is typically between £60 and £120. The certificate contains information regarding the property’s energy use and typical energy costs. It also makes recommendations about how energy use can be reduced.

EPC examples

The EPC gives your home an energy efficiency rating. It also indicates how the recommendations made within the certificate could improve the energy efficiency. The average home in England and Wales has a D rating.

The certificate considers various aspects of your home and assesses their energy efficiency.

There are several recommendations made in the EPC that will improve your property’s energy efficiency. An indicative cost is given for each recommendation alongside the amount of money that could be saved by following the recommended course of action.
