What do our clients have to say?
An EPC, or Energy Performance Certificate, is a document that provides information on the energy efficiency of a building. It is required by law for all buildings that are sold or leased in the UK.
The person responsible for obtaining an EPC will vary depending on the specific regulations. Typically, it is the person selling or renting out the building who is responsible for obtaining an EPC.
An EPC contains information on the energy efficiency of a building, including the estimated energy costs for heating, hot water, and lighting, as well as recommendations for improving the building's energy efficiency. It also includes the building's CO2 emissions rating.
An EPC is valid for 10 years from the date of issue.
An EPC rating is determined by assessing the building's construction, insulation, heating and hot water systems, lighting, and other factors that affect energy efficiency. The rating is given on a scale of A-G, with A being the most energy efficient and G the least.
If a building does not have an EPC, it may not be able to be sold or leased. It may also be subject to fines or penalties, depending on the country and specific regulations.
The cost of an EPC will vary depending on the size of the building and the location.
