The A To G Scale

Energy Performance Certificates use a scale of A to G. ‘A’ being the most efficient home, with lower fuel bills. The same scale is used to define the environment impact of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of a home. Most properties in Britain are band D or E.

An EPC recommendation form is included to show occupiers ways to improve their energy efficiency levels. The EU directive requires improvements that are cost effective in reducing fuel costs and CO2 emissions.

Home Inspectors/Domestic Energy Assessors use the RDSAP program to ensure these recommendations although general, are bespoke to the property in question.

Responsibility

The responsibility for the provision of an EPC rests with the owner, seller or landlord. With a new build the person carrying out the work must obtain an EPC and inform the building control officer or approved inspector this has been completed in the specified period.

A seller or landlord must pay for the initial EPC inspection, providing the prospective buyer or tenant with an EPC prior to entering into a sale or lease agreement.

A simple procedure, the householder must book an EPC inspection with a local Domestic Assessors who will visit the property and examine key items such as loft insulation, windows for double glazing etc. These observations are calculated, whereby an EPC is issued with a recommendation form attached.

The certificate shows the energy efficiency levels and environmental carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions with a recommended value of the potential for improvements.
