Energy Performance Certificates 

Posted on 16/8/2023

After a two year pandemic-induced hiatus, Open House is back with a programme of events,An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is needed whenever a property is built, sold or rented out.  It contains information about a property’s energy use, typical energy costs and recommendations about how to reduce energy use and save money.  

It gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and is valid for 10 years.  It is a legal requirement that your property has an EPC rating of E or above before you can rent it out.  The Government is considering raising the minimum requirements from level E to C.  Listed buildings don’t need an EPC.  

Full details can be found on the Government’s website
