What is a residential EPC (Energy Performance Certificate)?

The residential EPC records the energy efficiency of a buildings and displays the rating on a graph from A-G. The best result achievable is an A banding, with the lowest being G. The rating graph is similar to the labels you see attached to new appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines.

Throughout the UK Energy Performance Certificates are produced using standard methods and energy assumptions which allows buildings to be compared with another fairly. By doing this it allows owners, prospective buyers or tenants to view the projected energy consumption and carbon ratings over a yearly basis, so they can consider the overall energy efficiency and fuel costs as part of their investment or living expenses.

All Energy Performance Certificates are accompanied with a recommendations report which outlines cost-effective measures that can be put in place to improve the overall energy efficiency rating of a given property. A typical recommendation could be to upgrade a building’s heating system, increase insulation levels in a loft space or to upgrade single glazed areas to double glazing.

The Energy Performance Certificate is important as more than 50 percent of UK’s energy consumption and carbon emissions are produced by the way that we light, heat and generally use buildings. Relatively small changes such as installing low energy or LED lighting in all outlets of a building can have a profound effect on energy consumption.

Are there any cases whereby my building may be exempt?

  • Temporary buildings that will be used less than 2 years.

What are the penalties for not having an EPC?
