Energy Performance Certificate information for home owners
All Home Information Packs (HIPs) must contain an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).
An EPC assesses the energy performance of a property, from “A” representing the most energy efficient property to “G” signifying the least energy efficient property. A qualified Domestic Energy Assessor will conduct the EPC test. EPC’s also indicate a building’s environmental impact by stating its carbon dioxide emissions. An EPC further outlines where potential energy and resulting financial savings can be made.
The cost of an EPC is included in the cost of the Home Information Pack (HIP)
An EPC is valid for 10 years.
