Energy Performance Certificates
Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) have been introduced to help improve the energy efficiency of buildings.
If you are buying or selling a home you now need a certificate by law.
By October 2008 all buildings, whenever they are built, sold or rented out, will require one. The EPC provides 'A' to 'G' ratings for the building, with 'A' being the most energy efficient and 'G' being the least, with the average to date being 'D'.
