HIPs - Energy Performance Certificate

 

The Energy Performance Certificate is one of the compulsory documents to be contained in HIPs. It tells you how energy efficient a home is on a scale of A-G. Band A covers the most energy efficient homes, which should have the lowest fuel bills.

The Certificate also tells you, on a scale of A-G, about the impact the home has on the environment. Better-rated homes (A to D) should have less environmental impact through carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

The average property in the UK is in bands D-E for both ratings. The Certificate includes recommendations on ways to improve the home's energy efficiency to save you money and help the environment.

Most sellers of homes in the course of construction will have to provide a predicted assessment of the energy efficiency of the property. A full Energy Performance Certificate should be provided to the buyer when the home is completed.

 



More details about Energy Performance Certificates can be found on the Government’s HIP information website.
