Estate Agents are now legally obliged to provide homebuyers and tenants with a valid Energy Performance Certificate. EPC have been introduced to help improve the energy efficiency of buildings, and are required for all homes when sold or rented.
If you are selling a home you now are legally required as the vendor to possess this energy certificate by law. They are also needed for rented homes in the first instance that the property is to let.
The EPC provides ‘A’ to ‘G’ ratings for a building, with ‘A’ being the most energy efficient and ‘G’ the least. The aims of an Energy Certificate is to introduce measures that will help to cut homes’ carbon emission output and helps to tackle climate change.
Energy Performance Certificates are an excellent way for prospective homebuyers to assess the energy efficiency, or otherwise, of a potential purchase. They allow the purchaser to consider energy efficiency and fuels costs, and how this may affect their investment. Naturally, the more energy efficient a property is then the less the financial constraints will be upon the owner or tenant.
An EPC is accompanied by a recommendation report that will list cost effective methods of improving the energy rating of a building.
A consumer should not be too concerned by an energy inefficient property, as there are numerous steps that can be performed to remedy this, such as:
• Always turning lights off when you leave a room
• Never leave appliances on standby, and don’t charge electrical goods unnecessarily
• Use a timer thermostat on your heating. This allows you to modify your output to when you really need it
• Closing your curtains in the evening stops heat escaping through windows
• Ensure any draughts from doors and windows are eliminated
• Make sure dripping taps are fixed to reduce energy usage
• Incorporating energy saving light bulbs, which provide substantial savings in comparison to traditional bulbs
