Energy Performance Certificates
Domestic Energy Performance Certificates
An EPC is a rating given to a property to give the homeowner and potential buyers an indication of its energy efficiency.
The ratings are alphabetical, starting with an ‘A’ for the most energy efficient homes, dropping to the bottom rating of ‘G’ for the worse performing homes. The EPC will also give the homeowner guidelines (including estimates of cost) on how to improve the energy efficiency of their home.

Non-Domestic Energy Performance Certificates (EPC)
Much like a residential EPC, a non-domestic EPC rates the energy efficiency of a commercial building – it examines the efficiency of the building fabric, and the installed heating, ventilation, air conditioning systems, and lighting systems. The rating system is the same as that used with residential EPCs, with an ‘A’ rating being the most energy efficient and ‘G’ being the lowest rating.
Commercial buildings are divided into three categories, known as level 3, 4, and 5. The differences between the levels focus on the sophistication of the installed heating and ventilation systems, and whether the premises is newly built (or existing).
