How long is my EPC valid for?


EPCs are valid for ten years, except if they are part of a Home Information Pack (HIP). If it is part of a HIP, an EPC must be less than three years old when the building is first put on the market. See 'Home Information Packs' for more information about getting a HIP.


What does an EPC look like?


It looks like the ones you have on new electrical appliances and works in the same way, A is the most energy efficient, G the least energy efficient. The average house in the UK is an E.


Is the EPC any use to me?

Yes it is. Along with the certificate are recommendations to improve your energy efficiency, you are not obliged to instigate these measures but it is useful in energy efficiency awareness, maybe for your next property.


It also gives you information on the Environmental Efficiency of your property and can help you reduce your carbon footprint.

How long does an energy survey take?


It depends on the complexity and size of your house, it can take anywhere from 15 minutes to over 1 hour. We will give you an idea of how long when we receive your enquiry.
