The importance of an Energy Performance Certificate

An Energy Performance Certificate is a real step in empowering you to make informed decisions to reduce your impact on the environment, and to help you to save money off your energy bills, by making meaningful changes to your home’s energy performance.

One of the biggest contributors to global warming is carbon dioxide. 27% of Britain’s carbon dioxide (C02) emissions, which add directly to global warming, come from our homes. The way we use energy in buildings causes emissions of carbon to our atmosphere. The energy we use for heating, lighting and power in homes produces over a quarter of the UK's carbon dioxide emissions.

The average UK household emits approximately six tonnes of carbon dioxide every year. Adopting the recommendations in the EPC report reduces emissions and helps protect the environment. You can reduce emissions further by switching to renewable energy sources.
