The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) gives homeowners, tenants and buyers information on the energy efficiency of the property. It gives the building a standard energy and carbon efficiency grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’, where ‘A’ is the most efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’.
The ratings are measured using the same calculations for all homes, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.

You do not have to act on the recommendations contained in the report. However, if you decide to do so, then it could make your property more attractive for sale or rent by making it more energy efficient.
EPCs can only be produced as a result of a survey by an ‘accredited’ Domestic Energy Assessor. EPCs are used to collect standard information on the property – for example, its size and hot water/heating systems. The information is then fed into a government-approved software programme that produces the EPC.
