The Energy Performance Certificate – 10 years

In the last of our spotlight on safety posts, we look at The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) – how it provides information on the energy efficiency of your property… and how it can be improved. Some of the key details you should know are as follows:

Tests are carried out by a registered assessor – approved organisations who are qualified to test as well as make recommendations on improvement measures.
The survey takes from 30 – 60 minutes and looks at the size of the living space, construction, windows, insulation, lighting (light fittings, low energy light bulbs etc), heating systems and controls.
The EPC is valid for 10 years.

As always, safety of people and property is paramount at Duncan McKenzie Property, so never hesitate to contact us with any concerns or questions.
