Energy performance certificate
An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rates the energy efficiency and environmental impact of your property. It is rated on a scale from A to G (A the most efficient and G the least efficient). From the 1st April 2018 there is now a requirement for any properties rented out in the private rented sector to normally have a minimum energy performance rating of E on an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).
Current running costs for heating, hot water and lighting and a list of recommended energy saving improvements are shown on the certificate.
Apply for a EPC
You can get an EPC from an accredited domestic energy assessor.
