Just like the multi-coloured sticker on new appliances, Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) tell you how energy efficient a building is. The EPC has a rating from A (very efficient) to G (inefficient). It will have information on how costly it will be to heat and light your property and what its carbon dioxide emissions are likely to be.
An EPC also includes information on what the energy efficiency rating could be. If you made the recommended improvements and highlights cost effective ways to achieve a better rating.
Even if you rent your home, you could still implement some improvements noted on the EPC, such as switching to more energy efficient light bulbs.

We can complete an EPC assessment for you if your property is in Nottingham, Derby, Loughborough or surrounding areas.
Without an EPC rated E or above, landlords face civil and criminal penalties for signing a new tenancy or renewing an existing tenancy from 1st April 2018. There are fines of up to £5,000 per property for landlords who breach the legislation.
Landlords need to get a new Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) certificate every ten years. Each certificate has a grade from A to G, rating the building’s energy efficiency.
In 2015 legislation was passed that means, from April 2018, both domestic and non-domestic properties in England and Wales have had to meet a minimum energy efficiency standard (MEES).
The minimum efficiency standard is an E rating for all types of domestic and non-domestic property.
