Energy Performance Certificate
If you want to either sell or rent out your property it is a legal requirement to get an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). It is a tool for prospective purchasers or tenants so they can compare the likely cost of future energy bills between properties they’re considering buying or renting.
An EPC contains ratings for a property’s energy efficiency and environmental impact, both as it stands and what it could potentially be, shows estimated energy use and carbon dioxide emissions, and will give recommendations on what could be done to increase the property’s energy efficiency and so lower heating bills.
EPC and Green Deal
Started in February 2013 Green Deal is a government initiative that enables you to borrow money to make energy saving improvements to your home and the repayments will not exceed the savings you make on your energy bills.
EPC’s have been updated to make it clear how much money could be saved by making certain energy efficiency home improvements, and if the improvements are covered under the Green Deal then there will be a green tick next to them. If there is an amber tick next to the recommended improvement then that is one which will have to be paid for up front.
