What is an EPC certificate?

EPC is an acronym which means different things in different fields. In the UK, EPC means Energy Performance Certificate. Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a mandatory building standard in the United Kingdom. It is also known as an Energy Rating Certificate (ERC). 

So, what is an EPC certificate? EPC is a certification that shows how energy efficient a building is. It is required by the government to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. An EPC can help you (a potential tenant or buyer) save money on your energy bills and improve the energy efficiency of your building. It can also help protect the environment.

If you’re not familiar with the term EPC you may wonder what is an EPC Certificate.

An EPC is a certificate that shows how energy efficient a property/building is. An EPC is a rating scheme which summarizes the energy efficiency of a property. The building is given a rating from A to G. When a building is rated A it means the building is energy efficient while a rating of G means the building is not energy efficient.

What does energy efficiency rating mean?

The Energy Efficiency Rating of a building is determined by the Energy Efficiency Rating of the appliances used in the building. The energy efficiency rating of an appliance shows the amount of electricity an appliance needs to perform as compared to other models of the same capacity. An appliance that uses less electricity is more efficient and increases the EPC rating of a property.


How to get an EPC certificate?

Now that we have covered what an EPC certificate is, the next important thing is how to obtain one. EPCs are required for properties when they are built, sold, or rented.

To get an EPC, a qualified assessor must be hired to assess the property. This involves a visit to the property to collect necessary data such as insulation, boiler efficiency, and types of windows. The assessor will then input this information into software that calculates the energy efficiency of the property. The energy efficiency rating is given on a scale from A (most efficient, 92-100 SAP points) to G (least efficient, 1-20 SAP points). EPCs are valid for ten years. All homes and commercial properties being sold or rented in the UK require an EPC.

For more detailed information on EPC requirements, exemptions, and the process, you should refer to official government sources.


Benefits of having an EPC certificate

A good EPC certificate is important because it confirms that a building meets the minimum energy efficiency requirements set by the government. 

There are many benefits to having an EPC Certificate, including:

  • Improved energy efficiency:
  • Your property will use less energy, which can save you money in the long run.

  •  Reduced environmental impact:
  • Using less energy can have a positive environmental impact, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and contributing to climate change mitigation.

  • Increased value:
  • An EPC Certificate may improve the marketability of your property and help you achieve a higher selling price.

The benefits of having an EPC certificate are clear: not only will your property save on its energy bills, but it could also be eligible for financial incentives such as grants or tax breaks.
