The Energy Performance Certificate is a legal document that provides details on the energy efficiency of a property. It looks at heating costs and carbon emissions, grading your home from A to G. It also gives both the buyers and sellers information on the average cost of energy bills, with suggestions on how to save money with certain energy efficient measures.
The EPC displays two graphs. With the first including an energy efficient rating, which measures the homes overall efficiency. If a property receives a high rating then it is more energy-efficient and this means that the energy bills are likely to cost less.
An environmental impact rating is displayed on the second graph. This measures the impact on the environment and the emissions from carbon dioxide. This rating will provide a list of cost-effective measures and the potential rating of the building if these are installed. So they could be well worth doing.
The responsibility of ordering the EPC is with the seller. And you will have 28 days to receive it after putting your home on the market. As long as it has been ordered, the EPC does not need to be available when you first start marketing your property.
