  • The EPC certificate contains information about how energy efficient your property is, the typical energy costs and recommendations on how to save money & reduce energy costs.
  • Only accredited assessors are able to access property and produce EPC certificates.
  • You can buy your EPC direct from providers found on the Internet, or your estate agent will be able to arrange one for you.
