What is an EPC?
An Energy Performance Certificate is sometimes called an EPC. Similar to the energy rating that you see on appliances, the EPC shows the rating of the property It provides an energy rating from A to G, where A is the most efficient and G is the least efficient. The better the rating the more energy efficient the building is and the lower the fuel bills will be.
The EPC is carried out by a certified Domestic Energy Assessor who comes to visit the property and collects details in the home about the existing heating system, glazing lighting, and insulation, as well as dimensions of the home. This information is then entered into Government approved software which will then generate the EPC. The EPC will assess the energy efficiency of services which are present in the building. It will not comment on the present condition or safety aspects or maintenance of the services, nor will the assessment confirm that the installed system is fit for purpose.
Why were EPCs introduced?
The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) began the introduction of EPCs in Europe. The Housing Act 2004 is the UK’s legislation specific to EPCs; introducing the EPC to England and Wales in August 2007, followed by Northern Ireland (June 2008) and then Scotland (December 2008) EPCs are required for homes which are put up for sale or rental across the whole of the UK.
Why is an Energy Performance Certificate Required?
An EPC is intended to give the new purchaser or tenant with proper information about the energy efficiency of the building along with helpful suggestions about improving its performance. It will give recommendations of energy saving improvements that could be made to the property along with estimated installation costs as well as annual savings that would be made by carrying out that improvement. However, there is no statutory requirement to carry out any of the recommended energy efficiency measures stated if the EPC is for the sale of the property. However, if the EPC is for rental, then it must reach a minimum energy rating of an E. You can view an example of an Energy Performance Certificate by”Clicking Here”.”
Other reasons an EPC may be needed:
- A financial institution when applying for a remortgage or a loan
- Application for RHI funding through the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme
- Applying for Grant funding for insulation or heating
- All properties for rental must be at least a minimum energy rating of an E to be legally let. Having said that, in particular instances an exemption can be applied for.
