If you want to market your property for rent or sale, you need an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). But how much does an EPC cost, and what’s the process for getting one? Here’s a rundown of what you should know.
What is an EPC?
An EPC is proof of a property’s energy efficiency. It’s broken down into a few sections.
Estimated energy costs
The EPC estimates how much it costs to run utilities, like lighting and heating. It also estimates the cost of running hot water.
To be clear, these costs are just estimates. The real bills could be higher or lower.
Energy efficiency rating
Properties receive a ‘ranking’ or score based on their current energy efficiency. The score runs from ‘A’ (very energy efficient) to ‘G’ (least energy efficient). This part of the EPC looks very much like the energy rating stickers you find on appliances like … Read more
