What is an EPC?
The first step to achieving better energy efficiency in the home is to understand your customers’ current energy performance. An Energy Performance Certicate (EPC) is a legally valid document which provides an energy efficiency rating (displayed on A-G scale) in relation to a property’s running costs.
An EPC is required in the UK whenever a property is marketed for sale or rent or is newly built. The EPC is valid for 10 years or until a newer EPC is produced for the same property. It is recommended that a property’s EPC should be made available to potential buyers as soon as it is marketed for sale or rent.
