Domestic Energy Performance Certificates (EPC’s) were introduced in 2008. A government initiative to simplify how to see much energy a property uses, it’s CO2 emissions and to give recommendations on how to improve its rating. EPC’s are a legal requirement to sell or let any property in the UK.

Ratings are given from A to F with an “A” being the best rating given. From April 2018 it was made illegal to let a property with an energy rating below and E. A simple bar chart rating may be familiar and similar ratings can be found on electric appliances such and fridges.

EPC’s can also be used for Green Deal applications.
