Government legislation now requires all “buildings” being built, rented or sold to have and Energy Performance Certificate. A building is defined as a structure with a roof and walls which uses energy to ‘condition an indoor climate’. This means it has heating, air conditioning or mechanical ventilation.
The building can either be a whole building or part of a building that has been designed or altered to be used separately. If a building is made up of separate units, each with its own heating system, each unit will need an EPC.
The certificate displays the building’s energy rating in a simple graded format, together with carbon emissions and technical data.
A separate report lists the ways in which improvements can be made to boost the building’s energy efficiency. Details of the person who carried out the EPC assessment. Who to contact if you want to make a complaint
Energy Performance Certificates (EPCS) give information on how to make your “building” more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs.
Buildings that do need an EPC: The following buildings don’t need an EPC when they are built, rented or sold:
- Places of worship
- Temporary buildings that will be used for less than two years
- Standalone buildings with total useful floor area of less than 50 square metres that aren’t used to provide living accommodation for a single household
- Industrial sites, workshops and non-residential agricultural buildings that don't use a lot of energy
- Holiday accommodation that's rented out for less than 4 months a year or is let under a licence to occupy
- Unless a building is later modified, EPC's and their recommendation reports are valid for ten years from the date of issue
