What’s an EPC rating?

An EPC gives a property, an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and is valid for 10 years.

An EPC contains:

  • Information about a property’s energy use and typical energy costs
  • Recommendation about how to reduce energy use and save money
