"It's the energy efficiency of a property, insulation level, window type etc."

"An epc is an energy performance certificate checks are carried out around the home checking for heat loss due to lack of insulation or old windows or glass that has lost its argon gas. Lots of things are taken into account and based on the findings your property will be given an energy rating and a report of the finding I also believe you’re given advice on what can be improved. Hope this helps."

"An EPC stands for ‘Energy Performance Certificate’ and is a measure of how efficient your property is.
It looks at things like boiler, fabric of building, insulation, lights/bulbs and how the property could be improved.
EG: if you currently have an ‘a-rated’ property and are considering a heat pump you would not be improving the efficiency much so probably would not be entitled to the full £5k BUS rebate.

You can find your current EPC using this link:-
