What is an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)?
An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) indicates the energy efficiency of a property. Energy performance is evaluated using a scale from zero to 100 and is separated into bands ranging from A to G (A being the best; G being the worst). You’ve probably seen something similar on the side of lightbulb packaging or on your washing machine.
Do I need an EPC?
Since 2008 it has been a legal requirement to have an EPC whether you are selling a property or letting out.
What information is displayed on an EPC?
An EPC will look like the multi-coloured sticker that you see on new household appliances. It will include:
An energy efficiency ratingThe estimated costs of running your homeA summary of energy performance related features
The energy efficiency rating on an EPC will be dedicated to how energy efficient your property is. As we mentioned before this is graded from A to G.
Who can carry out an EPC?
Bradley NI can arrange for Energy Performance Certificates to be completed on both Residential and Commercial property.
