An Energy Performance Certificate (EPCs) are needed whenever the property is rented, sold or even built. EPC measures the energy consumption of a property by showing the energy ratings from A to G.
It provides an energy efficiency rating of a building on the scale of A to G, poor rating mean high utility cost to keep warm, better rating mean low energy bills.
EPC is valid for 10 years until unless there will be no change of heating system, windows, walls insulation, loft insulation, loft conversation or any extension etc.
Energy performance certificate costs are varying depend on property size starting from £60 – £120 including vat.
Energy Performance Certificate were introduced on 1st August 2007 to adopt energy saving measures of building.
