Energy Performance Certificates

All residential properties which come onto the market either for sale or for let need an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

Despite the fact that the Home Information Pack has now been suspended the legislation requiring a home owner or landlord to supply a copy of an Energy Performance Certificate is still in force.

At Dunderdale Asquith Estate Agents we can recommend and organise a reputable accredited energy assessor to carry out your EPC; once obtained your Energy Performance Certificate will be valid for ten years.

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

EPCs contain:

  • information on your home's energy use and carbon dioxide emissions
  • a recommendation report with suggestions to reduce energy use and carbon dioxide emissions

Energy use and carbon dioxide emissions

EPCs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions with potential figures that your home could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions would be if energy saving measures were put in place.

The rating measures the energy and carbon emission efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is 'D'. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.

The recommendation report

EPCs also provide a detailed recommendation report showing what you could do to help reduce the amount of energy you use and your carbon dioxide emissions. The report lists:

  • suggested improvements, like fitting loft insulation, cavity wall insulation etc.
  • possible cost savings per year, if the improvements are made
  • how the recommendations would change the energy and carbon emission rating of the property
