Getting an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
When you sell or rent a property, it’s important to have an EPC. Find out how to get yours.
An EPC is an Energy Performance Certificate and it’s a legal requirement to have one before you sell or rent or your property.
Why you need an EPC
An EPC provides an overview of your home’s energy efficiency. It will rate your property from A-G, with A being the most energy efficient and G the least. The certificate also highlights areas for improvement and gives you and others an overall picture of the energy usage for the whole property, taking into account things like roof insulation, window glazing and heating systems.
